A Fantastic Opportunity – St David’s Cathedral

I was lucky enough to be able to go down to St David's Cathedral, Wales and play on their organ!   Meirion Wynn Jones ran an organ 'masterclass' at the Cathedral, to which my music teacher and I attended. I was really nervous before hand, as I haven't been learning the organ that long and … Continue reading A Fantastic Opportunity – St David’s Cathedral

Children, Crafts & Christ

I adore little children. I wrote a blog post here, not too long ago, about how little most of the Churches are are doing for children. All too many Churches still haven't gotten the message about how important not only fellowship is, but also bringing the children to God for the next generation! My family and I have … Continue reading Children, Crafts & Christ

Our Good Shepherd – Study Sunday

'“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he sees the wolf coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away. Then the wolf attacks the flock and scatters it. The man runs away because he is a hired … Continue reading Our Good Shepherd – Study Sunday

Careless Talk – Hurtful Gossip

I like history. One of my favourite time periods to study is World War II. One of the posters I find particularly interesting is the 'Careless talk costs lives' poster. There is many different versions of this, and they all make a point quite clearly. Back in wartime, it was all too easy to give … Continue reading Careless Talk – Hurtful Gossip

My First Organ Recital

I have never been so proud of myself... My organ teacher (and musical director) gave me two pieces to play - one I had been learning on the piano, which she had adapted for the organ (to include pedals!). Ode to joy by Beethoven has been one of the first classical pieces I ever played … Continue reading My First Organ Recital

Not A Popularity Contest

You might be one of the 'populars' who hosts large groups of friends, and are consequently considered one of the most 'well-known' in your local area. Or, you might be a shy and quiet person, wanting only to blend in, and go about your daily life with a few close friends and family. Whatever your … Continue reading Not A Popularity Contest

Let The Children Go To Him

How long do you think your Church will last? 5, 10 or more years? That depends on which type you go to, and what it has to offer... In most of the more 'traditional' Churches I have been to and heard of, there is a lack of children. Why? Because there is simply not enough … Continue reading Let The Children Go To Him

Much More Than Just Chocolate Eggs

Ah, Easter! One of the most important times in the Christian calendar is here. Jesus was resurrected from the dead and then He rose into Heaven. I don't know about you, but after a long season of Lent, repenting of our sins, and being sad for the death of Jesus, when Easter comes, I feel … Continue reading Much More Than Just Chocolate Eggs

What Makes Good Friday So ‘Good’?

I always used to wonder why people called it 'Good' Friday. Surely Jesus' pain, suffering and death wasn't a good thing? So, how can people call it good? This particular Good Friday, I have realised what makes it good. Without Jesus dying the way He did for us, we would've been separated from God forever. … Continue reading What Makes Good Friday So ‘Good’?

Mary Magdalene – The Apostle of Apostles

As it's Holy Week, I thought it would be the perfect time to write about perhaps one of the most forgotten and discarded disciples, that actually played a huge part on Jesus' journey, particularly during His last week. Mary Magdalene was a loyal disciple. She was there at all the key moments, though, because she … Continue reading Mary Magdalene – The Apostle of Apostles
