I am very excited that this week a new project will come to fruition.  ‘Can you believe it?!’ Is a new radio show for Glastonbury FM, our local community radio station and it is going to be hosted by me, with lots of help and co-hosting from our Curate, Rev Guy!

How could we describe love

Maybe it is saying something funny just to cheer someone up.

Or perhaps making a cup of tea, finding out you have only boiled enough for one cup and giving it to another person anyway.

At home in our dining room we have this picture on the wall that says;  

‘Grace isn't a little prayer you say before receiving a meal, it is a way to live’.

Many of us will have been ‘encouraged’ to say grace as a child and its seen as way of saying thank...

The empty cross is the Christian faith.

Easter is not a destination, but a journey to be lived every single year.

Every year, we do just that. We travel through lent, trying to remove the things that have been getting in the way of God until we reach Holy Week. We start...
