At our last Messy Church we tried to do the crafts in order to tell the story, although it made for rather a bunfight around the tables and added to the Mess. This time around we are back to our usual free-for-all as we think about all that this creation can and will be.
We really hope you will be … Read more >

Friday 10th August, Beloit, Wisconsin
In 1964, New York’s World’s Fair was held in Flushing Meadow. A number of the American states exhibited, but it is only Wisconsin’s display that is now remembered by a friend with whom Catriona and I had dinner on Tuesday evening before we left Kentucky. What Barry remembered was the so-called ‘world’s biggest cheese’, which … Read more >
Tuesday 7th August, Lexington, Kentucky
The service at Faith Baptist Church on Sunday was mercifully uneventful. My attempt at a joke making a comparison between Meghan Markle and Donald Trump as both having made their name in TV shows before coming to the centre of power, went down OK. Well, no one walked out.
We had a most interesting day … Read more >
