Best Bible Verse: For Christ did not send me to baptise, but to preach the gospel — not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1: 17,18)

Best Tim Vine Joke: So I told my mum that I’d opened a theatre. She said, “Are you having me on?” I said, “Well I’ll give you an audition, but I’m not promising you anything.”

    Your blog is relevant and really got my day started off right. Thanks for your theological ponderings! I am in Florida and love your British humor — I don’t understand your joke at all! Blessings and peace.

    Hello Neil
    I also much enjoyed our conversation, even though it was brief. I would like to subscribe to your blog on my blogroll – the thing is I think I need an RSS Feed to do so? I see I could sign up by email – do you prefer us to do this?

    Hi Neil

    I’m just chasing use of my pictures and have found this use online, but I have no record of a licence from you.
    Please can you inform me of what right you have to use my image of the Queen at Manchester Town Hall , and who you got the image from?

    • Hi Mark, Apologies for not getting back to you sooner. I used the photo just to illustrate a message for Palm Sunday a couple of years ago. Think I found it on BBC website. Have removed it now.
