Do you remember your favourite story books when you were a child?  I remember a book of Grimm’s Fairy Tales - when I looked up Grimm’s Fairy Tales on the internet, I was surprised that I recognised a number of the stories in it: Tom Thumb; Snow White & Ros...

Matthew 16.13-20

I would guess that many of us, at sometime in our life, have been church shoppers.  We went looking for the perfect church, with worship we like and people we like.

There are some things we prefer to do at night.  Watch telly.  Sleep.  Relate to our loved ones (even if he is just a cat).
