Hi folks! I hope you’ve had a good week? Every Sunday I write a quick recap of my week in blogging followed by a few personal reflections concerning my life at this time. Today I’d like to introduce something different as well – a way of helping me get to know you a little better. So we’ll close with a ‘Question of the Week’ and if you feel like participating, that would be amazing!
The Week in Review
For this week’s Monday Music post I shared a song that I find deeply moving. The artist is Laurel Hubick and her song, entitled Names of God, is (as the title suggests) a journey through many of the names of God found in the Bible. You can read the post and listen to the song here.
On Thursday I was back with this week’s Thursday Theology post in which I looked at what I find to be one of the most convincing reasons for accepting the Christian faith. The Bible compels us to become fools for Christ, and in this post I looked at what 1 Corinthians has to say about The Foolishness of the Gospel. You can read the post here.
To round off the week I published my Friday Philosophy post. I really enjoyed writing this post, which looked at the famous Greek philosopher Socrates, and his big idea that the only thing we can truly know is that we know nothing. You can read the post, entitled Can We Know Anything? by clicking here.
A Few Random Reflections
- I went into central London yesterday for the first time in ages. I met my friend on Trafalgar Square and it was absolutely packed with tourists. What struck me was how everyone was filming and taking photos with their smartphones – it made me think how you really cannot be camera-shy in public these days, as in busy places you’re likely to get caught in dozens of snaps whether you like it or not!
- I bought some new clothes this week as I recently had a clear-out of my wardrobe. I decided to give away a bunch of clothes to someone in my area using Freecycle. The lady who collected the clothes was a Muslim woman and as she looked through the clothes she seemed delighted with their quality and size (I believe they were for her son). Always a blessing to be a blessing!
- As I type this I can hear mice scuttling around in the walls of my flat (it’s early in the morning and they seem to be night-time creatures). I’m just so glad that having gone around all the cracks in the walls with filler, they can no longer get into the flat! But that gives me an idea…
Question of the Week:
Have you ever had a bad experience with rats or mice?
