Where I found God today



These are short reflections shared by people who are seeking God in all things and have been surprised by what they find as they travel their pathways.

It's always been a subject of some bemusement to me that although many tourists come to see the sights that you'd expect them to see (Big Ben, alas now covered in scaffolding, St Paul's, the big museums etc) many tourists actually come to London for...
Harrods at Christmas
Some time ago, I visited the world heritage site of New Grange in Ireland. This amazing Neolithic mound was designed so that the rising sun would shine through a tunnel on Winter solstice day, lighting up the tomb deep inside the barrow. Apart from...

I remember a few difficult Christmases in the past, although most of my Christmases have been peaceful and cosy. But it is so much harder, if things are hard at Christmas, than on another day. I was reminded of this recently as I was on a train with...

Yet, each part is important since without sheep there would be no shepherds and thus no angel to bring them the Good News! It is always a joy to see the happy, excited faces of the children as they take their places on stage to bring the age old...

It is a joy too, to read the messages and the news of friends far away; news of births, marriages, new careers, new opportunities opening up for them or their children. Sometimes, however that joy is tinged with sadness as we open a card signed this...
