Baptism —

Friday 3rd December 2010 in Waimauku, New Zealand Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ ” Matthew 4:10 We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that […]

Imogen Heap —

During our belated summer holiday, my second eldest introduced me to the music of Imogen Heap.
