    • church should come with COFFEE

      Posted by Minister on September 1, 2014

      So it is almost time to leave B’more and the U.S. but before I leave there is one last thing to do – another Bible Study. (Anyone would think I was religious!) At some unearthly hour of the morning the minds behind #BreakingBread hold a Bible study in a coffee shop. It only seems fitting […]

      At the outset I wish to pour out extravagant praise for my wonderful host Meredith Gould. Her sacrifice of time, spirit and knowledge was above and beyond generous and I cannot thank her enough. Meredith you are a blessing to so many; an angel with a Doctorate; the Queen of Twitter and the fairy godmother […]

    • church isn’t a DENOMINATION

      Posted by Minister on August 28, 2014

      Baltimore – where the “Star Spangled Banner” was written is a nice place. That’s about as effusive I wish to be about this small but strangely charming city. Again though, like Denver and certain parts of Houston, it’s the people that make the place special and I mean extra special. Wandering the centre city of […]

    • churches should be ARMED!

      Posted by Minister on August 27, 2014

      (with the sound suppressed, semi-automatic pistol of the Spirit. Yours for under $2,000)   I will draw my Texas blog to a close – in its own way Texas was as brilliant as Denver. Where Denver was hands on, feet dirty, get in there and do it Texas was very different. And I expected it […]

        Warm winds blowing, Heating blue sky, And a road that goes forever, I’m going to Texas. Chris Rea   I left Denver reluctantly, (it really is a great place and I learnt so much and saw so much). I began my trip to Texas. And I’ll be honest I had no idea what to […]

      Posted by Minister on August 11, 2014

      “If you can judge a wise man but the colour of his skin, Then mister you’re a better man than I.”   Are you a casual racist?   I am. I don’t mean to be but I am. I came across these pictures the other day and they made me think…. (click on them and […]
