as the year winds down…..here’s been some of my favourites…..so what about yours?

Five favourite fun moments: Walking with a church through pain and loss into a new and enduring knowledge of Gods love, Grenson vibram footwear gifts aka my new preaching shoes, sitting with others in the possibility and hope of new beginnings, the extended family goodness of eight of us holidaying in Florida and making sense of the calling of my life.

Five favourite movies:  A thousand times good night, Captain Phillips, The fault in our stars, Parkland and Calvary.

Five favourite tastes: The discovery of Keevil and Keevil beef, smuggled Ormo soda-farls from the homeland,  The Citrus fruit drink that Shoreditch House serves, that dirty brilliant curry from Tayyabs shared with Brian and Stuart, and my home-made Lamb Tagine.

Five favourite sounds: Popular problems by Leonard Cohen, Live at Bangor Abbey by Foy Vance, In the lonely hour by Sam Smith, Love ran red by Chris Tomlin and The Art of Celebration by Rend Collective Experiment.

And the hardest of all,……..five favourite reads: Desiring the Kingdom by James KA Smith, A Thicker Jesus by Glen Stassen, A Praying Life by Paul Miller, Repenting of Religion by Greg Boyd, and The Good & Beautiful series by James Bryan Smith.
