It's become part of 'what we do' for our students at every residential at The Light Project College. Every Sunday after lunch we send our students out with a gift to give away and yesterday each student received a pair of socks. The challenge to them was to carry the socks and look for someone … Continue reading Holy socks!
One of the regulars at the pub made me laugh today. Lots. I had the privilege of sitting with him as I drank copious amounts of coffee and he sipped on his pint of Abbots sharing some stories about his marriage and work in post war Austria. I've heard many of Bob's* tales before. He … Continue reading They said their marriage wouldn’t last…
I was struck by a phrase that I read in the book of Acts when Paul was carried away from an angry crowd who were shouting for him to be rid of! Paul asked 'may I say something to you?' (Acts 21.37) So I made a simple sign and set up a plinth for me … Continue reading May I say something to you?

I got to pray for a dear friend of mine. The day before we met she been told the 'stage' of the pancreatic cancer. The doctors confirmed that it was stage 4. That's the worst news that she could have been told. Before we met to pray I believe God spoke. It was through Isaiah … Continue reading God, do awesome things we don’t expect
We snuggled up on the sofa, turned on the TV and together as a family watched last nights Ariana Grande One Love concert in Manchester. We found it deeply moving, not least because of the terror attacks in London the previous night and it was less than two weeks after the terror attack in Manchester following her … Continue reading Justin Bieber and heart shaped hands…
I accidently came across this today as I was looking for a document in the depths of my computer. It felt too good not to share. It's an old prayer that 'spoke' to me so powerfully many years ago when I spent some days up at the Sisters of Jesus Way in West Kirby. It's … Continue reading For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says your God.
