Larry King on Angels

I’m listening to Larry King’s CNN talkshow at the moment. The topic? Angels. We have guests Max Lucado, author of a book ‘Next Door Savior’, Father Michael Manning, Syvlia Browne, who is an authority on angels, and Mattie Stepanek, a young boy who is ‘battling incurable illness’.

My baptism

I would like to thank the following family members for coming: Mum and Dad, for supporting me despite not being Christians themselves.

Everything but the God

If you’ve noticed, I’ve altered the name of one of my favourite bands, to express what came to my mind – after attending my introductory Alpha course at St George’s church this evening.
