The Bible

I'm thinking of doing a few posts on the Bible and what I see as misconceptions with the church about what it is or isn't.

Does anyone think this may be a good idea? I probably won't get round to it for a while as I'm off on holiday soon.

Is it OK to worry?

I have been thinking about whether it is OK for a christian to worry about something and whether this is compatible with trusting God to look after us.

What triggered this was having yet another review at work about my sick record when I have had a very clear assurance the God is looking after this aspect of my life. And yet I was worried and stressed and thought I shouldn't be. Then I thought about Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane when he prayed that, if possible, he wouldn't have to go through the passion. Was he both trusting the Father and fearful at the same time?

Any comments?

Yet More Health Woes

On Friday I had the dressing over hole in my shin changed (See National Health Service post below) only to find that it is now infected so I have to keep my leg raised as much as possible (how to you do that in an office?) and I'm on antibiotics.

On Sunday my left arm started to swell and go red around an insect bite which I got in the church garden on Saturday evening. We had moved there for strawberies and cream (and wine) following a concert in the church.

Needless to say I don't feel 100% at the moment!!!
