The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.

The path to inner peace
I found this image whilst browsing for images relating to peace. Sometimes I get so sick of some of the banal and hateful stuff I see on Facebook that I am tempted to follow this path to peace.
Thus far, I find myself lacking in courage!

I was reminded of the Bethlehem barrier while watching ‘Pilgrimage with Simon Reeve’ on BBC 2 . There are several terms for this structure. The term used by the UN and by EAPPI is the ‘separation barrier’; some people call it ‘the apartheid wall’; the Israeli authorities call it the ‘security fence.’
Neighbourly it is not!

A rainbow over The Merse, from my home in Chirnside, Scottish Borders
God said, “I have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my permanent promise to you and to all the earth. When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will be seen in the clouds, and I will remember my covenant with you and with everything that lives. Never again will there be a flood that will destroy all life. When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on earth.”
From the Old Testament Flood story…

This thoughtful illustration comes from Michael Mitton’s book, “Restoring the Woven Cord”. Published back in 1995 it’s long been one of my favourite ‘popular’ texts about things we can learn from Celtic Christian spirituality that can be helpful to the contemporary church. The drawings at the beginning of each chapter are by artist Lindsey Attwood, from Derby.
