Begged, borrowed and pinched from a few places – including the Church of England Topical Prayers page but broadly my own. In the power of the Spirit and in union with Christ, let us pray to the Father. The response to God of love is Hear our prayer: God of love Hear our prayer … Continue reading
…I’ve been quiet here as I headed to my BAP. I headed off on a vocational retreat a short while ago to start to move from preparation to prayer ahead of the event and put aside all non-prayer things (including this blog). My BAP was on May 12th – 14th up at Stafford… the news? … Continue reading
The question posed for me to answer (on no more than two sides of A4) was: Assess myself and my Church against the five marks. Where are we? The five marks are: (via) To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom To teach, baptise and nurture new believers To respond to human need by loving … Continue reading

Fully loaded the CBF600 is starting to feel like she’s wallowing, and frankly unless I get more training, that’s exactly what I’ll be doing all the way to Moscow. The problem I think is a simple one of too much weight combined with too little experience sledging around pristine Welsh tarmac right into the heart … Continue reading
Here it is in all it’s glory – I never get tired of these things! 500 miles in one weekend – can’t be bad.
The bike is away, the flickr photos are being uploaded and I have a full Sunday roast in my Belly…. fantastic weekend, much learned, full report shortly. Sorry about the strange characters in the posts whilst we were away – the photo update stuff seems to put them in – will get that fixed ASAP.
