Hello, my name is David. I'm an introvert. I'm a Scot, I'm a husband, son, brother, step-dad, uncle, cousin. I'm a man. I'm 51 (and a half!). I'm a Christian - at least I try to be. I fail quite a bit of the time, but I'm still trying. I'm also a cynic. How can … Continue reading Who Is Important?
So, what does it mean? Well, we hear so much these days about how proud people are to be gay. They have embraced it with all their being. They want to shout it from the rooftops; and society wants us to agree with them and celebrate with them. Well, I'm straight! I'm not gay!! I … Continue reading Straight Pride
Well, not quite, but - it seems to me that things are coming to a head. I'm one of these weird folk who believe what the Bible says. Young earth, salvation through Christ's sacrifice on the cross, and that there is a time coming (very soon!) when He's coming back for His own. There is … Continue reading Life, The Universe & Everything . . .
A question. Why am I not allowed to believe that the earth is less than 10,000 years old?

It comes up with 'facts' to explain the theory, whilst completely refusing to even consider any alternative. After all... … Continue reading A question.
Right. I am a Christian. I believe the Bible. I believe in the Genesis account of creation. After all, we are still allowed differing opinions, right..? Or are we only allowed to voice liberal opinions that everyone can agree with? Are we sheep, lemmings, or humans? Are we not allowed to disagree with a majority … Continue reading A Different Opinion
I have watched and rewatched M*A*S*H goodness knows how many times. One of my favourite TV programmes of all time. Every now and again there is a quote, a phrase etc that hits home. It's not always just about the jokes. One from Season 7 Episode 15, "Dear Sis" - "You saved me, Father. You … Continue reading Love Your Neighbour
So, we had an open day last Saturday to officially open our new church hall. What an overwhelming success it was. The only reason for that is God. We have prayed, we have planned, we have hoped . . . and it all came to pass. The rain stayed off. The sun shone for some … Continue reading Church Open Day

God is Good and Gracious, and we'd like to share it with you. We'll have a bar-b-q, bouncy castle, crafts for kids & adults... Come & say hello. … Continue reading Church of God in Birmingham Open Day.
Well, we're closing in on a general election in the UK. As a Scot living in England this is an interesting time. For whom do I vote? Do I vote? As a Christian can I vote for any of these parties who tend to lie through their teeth most of the time? It's not an … Continue reading Politics
Jeremiah 12:5 (NKJV) The Lord Answers Jeremiah 5 “If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you, Then how can you contend with horses? And if in the land of peace, In which you trusted, they wearied you, Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan?" In recent times, … Continue reading Growing Weary
