Who is your King?

i preached at St John's on Sunday about Jesus as king. The passage was Luke 23.33-43 - Jesus on the cross. It was Christ the King Sunday in the Anglican church, also known as The Feats of our Lord Jesus Christ the King. So i decided to look at Jesus as King. The feast was initiated by Pope Pius XI in 1925 and was connected to an increasing denial of Christ as King as well [...]

A Quick Guide to Today’s Hashtagging Game tag #ThisParrotIsntDeadIts

If the phrases, “Bereft of Life”, “Bleeding Demised”, “Shuffled off its mortal coil” and “Run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible” don’t mean a whole lot to you, then you’ve come to the right place… They all, of course, are uttered in one of Monty Python’s most famous sketches of all time, ‘The Dead Parrot Sketch’ and if you still don’t know what i’m talking about, then you should watch this [or [...]

How to Catch a Python

So by now most of you are familiar with the Hashtag Game i host to provide a bit of light relief and silliment [it’s a word!] in between trying to educate white people on privilege, figure out how to be an ally to my friends of colour and see and become significant transformation in the lives of the poor and more. Last week 43 941 tweets were produced with the #YouHadMeAt game we played [although [...]

Let’s talk about money, baby.

The Bible says, 'The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.' i have noticed, however, that for most people, talking about money seems to be the evilest of evil. Or close to. Why is it that people do not like to talk about money? As if it is this hallowed 'That-Which-shall-Not-Be-Named' mystical creature upon whose mentioning chaos and damnation occurs? You don't believe me? Try asking someone sitting with a group of [...]

the sounds [and unpanic’d nature] of silence…

this is something i've been contemplating for a while and i'd love to hear your thoughts on it. as i've been collecting stories for the two popular series i am running on my blog at the moment, namely, 'Marriage through the Years' [stories, struggles and advice from a variety of people who have been married for a differing number of years] and 'What my Single Friends would like their Married Friends to know', one thing keeps [...]

the country of africa [aka 'these americaners are crazy']

so the other day i am on one of the bizarrest [so bizarre in fact, english grammar policers, that it took 'most bizarre' to another level] phone conversations at work that i have ever been on, which basically ends with this old couple [him speaking, her in the background] letting me know emphatically that the appropriate number of times for one to have read the bible through from beginning to end is somewhere >30 ["I [...]

noooooo-body expects the royal wedding inquisition…

so yesterday was one of those fun days when i posted what i thort was a random thort on some global happening and turns out it wasn't... not that i am new to this or very much surprised - from not joining the save the orangutang group on facebook which eventually [after much patient messaging and reasoning and trying to be nice] scored Justine from Australia the prize of being the first person i had [...]

the royal pita wedding

where 'p' is for 'pain' there are three kinds of people in the world - those who are obsessed with the royal wedding happening in the uk today between william and kate and those who aren't [the third group being those fortunate enough to have no clue that it is happening, who i assume are the poor and marginalised because if you have a tv or computer you probably cannot avoid having had it thrust [...]

I'm 37, I'm not o-old… (courtesy of monty python)

it's my birthday today, and i AM 37 (i know, shock horror gasp, no ways, whatever) but i thort it would be a great day to post one of the greatest conversations from Monty Python's 'The Quest for the Holy Grail' that i finally relate to...
