    It's a beautiful thing to feed the birds, if everyone had more compassion it would be a much better world. I guess all in all we just have to do the best with what we have...

    Donald Trump has rubbished global warming but he forgets there has been no sign of life for millions and millions of space miles from NASA and all the telescopes of centuries.
    In my mind that makes this world very precious, we are surely an Ark millions of miles from any sign of life in the universe. Surely it's up to us all to keep our world alive, for the sake of life itself, its bigger than humankind.
    We have life itself in our hands, this is why I like feeding the birds. :D

    Yes it's a political upheaval of biblical proportions. I like to think of Moses parting the sea. The dividing of tribes. :D

    Without wishing to reopen the discussions on the history of the C of E, if anyone is interested in learning more about Foxe's book of martyrs, mentioned earlier in the thread, there is a good podcast on the topic from the BBC In Our Time - Religion series. The Programme is hosted by Melvyn Bragg and the book is discussed by three academics (of Church History, the History of Early Ideas and Book History respectively) from Oxford, London and Brunel Universities.
