Guardians of the Galaxy II: Some thoughts…

Finally watched Guardians of the Galaxy II Sunday night. i say "finally" because i think Guardians of the Galaxy original is probably my best movie of all time. So. Much. Fun. And yes, SPOILERS be alerted... Let's be honest, pretty much anything with Chris Pratt in is going to likely be a win for me. Since winning me over as Andy Dwyer in Parks and Recreation season II [hated him in season one, was so [...]

Life is beautiful…ly difficult.

Hm. Big fat punch in the face right there. Sitting at my computer thinking i should write a post on how difficult my life is right now because i'm sure there are people out there who are finding life incredibly difficult and a post on how difficult i am finding life might be encouraging or something. Put words on to what someone else is feeling. But then my mind drifts to aspects of poverty in [...]

Parenting ideas from non-parents

Do people without children have any wisdom to offer parents who do? That was the question i asked in this post earlier this week, which met with mostly positive response. i also asked friends on Facebook if any of them had any advice to pass on to parents and this is what i received: Leah Rudman: Ok, I like this a LOT. So I'm director of a Childcare centre so I look after 71 children [...]

Sunday Preach: Faith in Active Solidarity

Yesterday i preached three times at Christ Church Kenilworth on the topic of 'Faith in Active Solidarity' with the tagline: Friends who carry friends to Jesus. The passage i was given was Mark 2.1-12 and i imagine many of you will know the story of the four friends who carry their paralysed friend to Jesus and end up having to break through the ceiling of someone's house because the crowd is so big that they [...]

A waitressing tip.

Don't! No, just kidding, i have always said that waitering is the best job in the world when everything goes smoothly [which working at Spur for five years it never did, but nothing the hummed bars of the Mission Impossible theme song couldn't fix as i spun myself around the place]. By now you have likely heard some version or versions of the Ntokozo Qwabe/Ashleigh Schultz Obz Cafe waitressing debacle and probably have some opinions [...]

Just showing up: a vigil for Sinoxolo

This has been a tough two weeks with a focus on the deaths of Sinoxolo and Franziska in Cape Town. Two tragic deaths. One not more important than the other. One not more meaningful than the other. Two lives lost. Countless families, friends, communities affected. Much pain. These were two very bad things. As people tend to do on social media, the moment you start speaking about the one, you are challenged about the other [...]
