FracturedFaithBlog passed 300,000 views earlier this year and WordPress didn’t see fit to tell me. How rude of them! I only found out after accidentally stumbling across the statistic. That made it none the less surreal and difficult for me to digest. Not bad for a shy, awkward Northern Irish guy who decided to startContinue reading “Thank You 300,000 Times”

Show A Little Respect
Yesterday a very old lady lost the man she had loved for over 80 years, her rock, the one who had stood by her side through unimaginable highs and lows. His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke Of Edinburgh, passed away at Windsor Castle. A nation went into mourning and accolades and tributes flooded in fromContinue reading “Show A Little Respect”
Even Sheep Have Feelings
Meet the most captive audience I’ve had yet. Charlie and I met these woolly wanderers on our morning walk today and it got me thinking about a word I’ve seen popping up on social media a lot recently. Sheeple. It seems to describe people who mindlessly go along with the majority on an issue, withoutContinue reading “Even Sheep Have Feelings”
Kill Loneliness At Christmas
Fionnuala has asked me to write, updating you on the Christmas card initiative which she posted about several weeks ago. If you are taking part she will e-mail you next week with details of who you are writing to. You can still take part if you would like to send a Christmas card to someoneContinue reading “Kill Loneliness At Christmas”
I first met Sasha about a year ago, crumpled in a corner on a city centre street. She struck such a pathetic picture that I couldn’t walk past her and stopped to offer some help. We got talking and I see her most weeks now at various locations about the ‘town’ as Belfast folk referContinue reading “Sasha”
Northern Ireland seems to be in a state of permanent darkness at present. When I wake up it’s dark, cold, wet and windy. I go to work and sit in an office all day. With no windows. Then I come home. It’s dark, cold, wet and windy. The only time I encounter daylight is onContinue reading “Can You?”
That Time I Frightened A German Teenager On The London Underground
So there I was yesterday afternoon. Sitting on the tube as it hurtled beneath the streets of London towards our stop. It was packed which meant that my work colleague was sitting further down the carriage whilst I was surrounded by a gaggle of excited German teenagers who had embarked at the previous stop. IContinue reading “That Time I Frightened A German Teenager On The London Underground”
Who Needs You Today?
Earlier in the week I wrote about how Peter, the most unlikely of leaders, became head of the early Christian church in Jerusalem following the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. The church grew at an incredible rate during this period as many thousands were converted after hearing the testimonies of Peter and the otherContinue reading “Who Needs You Today?”
Ask Me A Question….
How many times have you opened your mouth to say something to a loved one but have been unable to force the words from your lips? You’ve felt too awkward or embarrassed to make public what may have been sitting on your heart for what seems like an eternity. So the unspoken thought or emotionContinue reading “Ask Me A Question….”
Care & Love
A rare theological discussion broke out in the office yesterday. Delighted as I initially was it soon degenerated into the usual nonsense as the youngest member of our team innocently enquired ‘Did they have bicycles in the Bible?’ Amidst howls of derision from my co-workers I wracked my memory banks for all of a miilsecondContinue reading “Care & Love “
