Well, I'm almost half way through my trip and I think I may have got the water system sussed here. Since the water is heated by solar panels, there is hot water in the evenings, but it's not necessarily still warm by the morning, so best to shower in the evening. Then from mid-morning to … Continue reading Saturday in Fianar
There is an interesting post and comments on Bible-version-schizophrenia at Better Bibles Blog. For the record, I tend to work with the NIV, because that is the Bible that most churches I go to use, I read the NLT for my own use and I can only remember Bible verses in the KJV.

URBANarmy Is an interesting blog that's well worth a look. It describes itself as "a collection of urban missio Dei musings and ponderings. There is an excellent link to a book review site that is well worth a glance if you are interested in mission.
There is a good post at Better Bibles Blog on which English language Bible is the best to use.
I've had a bad week with things going wrong! As Sue mentioned in her last post, I left my wallet in a friend's car last week. It was returned with the contents intact, but by then all of our credit cards had been cancelled just in case. Now, Amazon, our ISP and all of the … Continue reading Don’t let your left foot know what your right foot is doing…
Dear Friends,I’ve been studying with London School of Theology for over a year, but a couple of weeks ago I went up there for the first time for a Study Weekend. It was great to connect what had been names on emails with real faces as I met some of the distance learning tutors and … Continue reading April News
