  1. Judith Durham singing the Lord’s Prayer reminds of a story a friend told, about when, as a non Christian, he was sitting in the Wild Boar, a hostelry in Aberdeen, sometime in the 90’s. A woman from the Salvation Army came in, collecting for charity. One of the patrons, in high alcoholic jocularity, shouted “Sing us a song, then!”. Without breaking a beat, she sang a hymn there and then. The whole bar fell into silence, when she finished burst into applause.

  2. David, regarding the comments on homosexuality:

    We’ve recently had to leave a church over this issue. The church had avoided giving a good clear and principled answer to the question over the past decade, and had a same sex couple where one of them was leading youth ministry. 10 years on the new vicar is living with a bloke in the vicarage. Says it all really – surely the inevitable consequence of being wishy washy and taking the path of least resistance.
