Finding the Way Out

To get to my house, you turn off the main road onto a small stretch that splits into two roads, one of which is where I live. What most people don’t realise is that this small section of road is actually only one-way. You can come in on this road, but you cannot really leave the same way.

Loneliness: The Connection We All Need

Loneliness is now an epidemic in our nation. We’ve never been more connected in this world of social media, but the truth is, most of us feel more disconnected and more isolated than ever. We live in a world where it’s easy not to really see one another. When we know people, we so often only see what others choose to show us, and even then, we’re still none the wiser about what is really going on inside.

When Love Comes to Town

Recently, I visited Israel on a six-day tour of Jerusalem and the Sea of Galilee. During a visit to Magdala, the home of Mary Magdalene, my tour group saw the ruins of the first-century synagogue where Jesus quite possibly would have preached. Next to it is the newly-built Boat Chapel, and if you turn right and go down the steps you enter the lower Encounter Chapel. The Encounter Chapel is an impressive sight with its first-century floor and synagogue feel. Upon entering, the eyes are immediately drawn to a large painting by Chilean artist Daniel Cariola, which portrays a bleeding woman reaching out for healing from Jesus as he walks towards the house of Jairus.

The Hidden Hunger

Every Sunday, you’ll find me under the flyover, in the heart of Coventry Town Centre, feeding the broken, vulnerable, drug-addicted, alcohol-dependent, and homeless individuals in our city. Having done this for over 11 years, it still doesn’t get any easier.

Divine Appointments!

Have you ever had a divine appointment—a moment when you connected with someone and you sensed there was something of God in that moment? Did you later realise, looking back, why that connection took place? There have been many times I’ve found myself somewhere, wondering why God had led me to that place, only to have a conversation with someone which had significance. I call those divine appointments.

Finding Peace in a Knife Carrying World

During the past few weeks, the news has reported that many teenagers have been stabbed to death. These knife attacks sadden me, as many teenagers have been lost—killed by other teenagers! This means that many young lives are being adversely affected, whether through death, imprisonment or fear.

The Process of the Pebble: Just a thought...

Recently, I drove to the Lake District with my boyfriend, and we found ourselves at West Shore Beach on Walney Island. The beach was covered with pebbles. I was amazed by them and by how many there were and how different they all were. Seeing so many pebbles like that caused me to stop and consider how a pebble is a formed.

Wear Love!

As we have gone from August to September, the seasons have also switched from summer to autumn (or from cool to cold if you live in North East Scotland like me!).

When the seasons change we also change our clothing. We do away with the shorts, vest tops and sandals, and we bring out the long sleeves and dark colours, which means I have an excuse to go shopping. My husband always jokes that random people turn up at the door and give me brand new clothes for free.
