  1. Its been my experience that when anyone mentions Bangor, most people automatically think of Bangor Wales. I live in Bangor and I’ve in the past asked Google for train times from Bangor to Belfast only to be told it will take a ferry trip and around a days travel because it assumes I’m in Wales lol. When you mentioned David Trimble going to Bangor some may have made this assumption. 😅

    I always enjoyed City Alight, but the song of theirs you played today was new to me.

    Here’s a lady I listen to. You may have heard her. This song she sings could have been written based on my pre Christian life because I was that wretch. Enjoy.

  2. I should have mentioned ‘most people outside northern Ireland. I do wish there was an edit facility. 🙂

  3. Thanks David for your comments on Ron Sider. For me also, reading his _Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger_ was a life-changing ‘event’. There are, of course, a number of tributes to him on the Internet. The one in the Christian Century (which I accessed through another blog since the article itself is behind a pay wall) ended with a statement from his last conversation with Tony Campolo:
    “If Christ is not risen from the dead, nothing else matters. If Christ is risen from the dead, nothing else matters.”
    Sider said to Campolo “write it down”. Good advice! Write, learn and inwardly digest!
