What a Wonderful World (In 16 Musical Genres)!
As you can tell I am using lots of video fillers for the Christmas season. Tomorrow I will start the countdown on my top 3 blog posts of 2012 (statistically). Then, early in the New Year I will be leaving this blog and starting over at www.20schemes.com. However, I will give plenty of notice about…

BBC Children In Need, Alan Hansen, Kids In The street & Niddrie
This is a short film shown as an appeal in the BBC Children In Need programme recently. I am showing it because the man on the film, Kev Finlay, is a great guy. The church has been working with him over the last year or so in a number of ways, including football, and he is currently helping us…
Hand Waving In Services: A Beginners Guide
This is dedicated to my Assistant Pastor, Andy Constable, our in-house hand waving guru. I’m more of an elbow flapping man myself but I am assured that as long as I am doing it with my eyes closed, my face lifted up and an earnest expression on my face, it looks really spiritual.
