Does Scotland Need Another Billy Graham?

  This is the editorial from the June Record.  You can purchase a digital copy here – for the ridiculous price of £1.50 (or equivalent).  Watching the BBC documentary ‘Six Weeks to Save the World’, about Billy Graham, was utterly fascinating. The 1950s was a different era and a very different Scotland. The majority of people were associated with the church, and holding a six-week … Continue reading Does Scotland Need Another Billy Graham?

Its a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

Some Observations on The Church in Northern Ireland

The more I go to Northern Ireland the more I love it….and the more I am concerned and burdened for the Church there.  It has not collapsed like the church in most of the UK, nor as the Catholic church has in Southern Ireland.  But the pressures of secularisation and the forces of materialism, doctrinal and spiritual weakness are threatening to overwhelm. I had the … Continue reading Some Observations on The Church in Northern Ireland

The Brexit saga rolls on.  This week Nicola Sturgeon demanded that the UK stay in the Customs Union (in effect the same as remaining in the EU – but without any say!);  numerous panic buttons were hit as Project Fear was ratcheted up; and the attempt to stop Brexit was continued with Tory, Liberal, Labour and SNP Remainers upping their hysteria.  It’s interesting how everything … Continue reading The Origins of the EU – Greek Workers, UK Remainers and Jean Monnet – (The Great Deception – Part 2)
