sunset-amazon.jpg I've always been attracted to bookshops and rivers. Here is a picture of the Amazon at Sunset. This picture reminds me that I'm always glad to be near the end of my journey when sunset happens on the Amazon. Sunset over the Amazon is also a time when you don't want to be stepping into the river. All kinds of wild life wakens up just after 5.30pm. Now if the river can be dangerous so can bookshops, as those who attended this concert can testify. Talking about...

absings.jpg While preparing and doing some research for the next Bogle Band Album, I came across a pile of tapes from the Bogle Band Tour of the States in 1998. We spent a week in Minneapolis touring round Universities and Colleges. We even managed to play in Kieran's Irish Pub. However I discovered a recording of the day we played in the Edina Bookshop. I'll put some posts up over the next few days highlighting the concert. I think it was a classic. If you listen to my accent...

We hope to post out over the weekend around 3000 envelopes promoting the work of CWW. The theme is " All you can't leave behind" Those of you who are keen U2 fans will I 'm sure think the title is familiar. In a sense it is and the other its not. You work out what is missing from this title. But please don't send your comments on...

compassion2.JPG The above picture was on a billboard in Glasgow, in the merchant City. The dark glasses reminded me how we can hide our eyes from those who look at us, but we can't hide our actions. they eventually catch up with us. So I guess my past is out again,yes believe it or not I've got the bug again. Its time to write a new album of songs.Iain jamieson who writes songs with me has come up with this idea that we should allow others to follow the progress of the album by making...

Praying through the Gaps

We had a very interesting day today. I managed to bring to a conclusion the study in the Book of Ephesians. It is such a wonderful book it reminds us about the kind of Gospel we preach and the kind of church God calls us to be. It was good to conclude the study by focusing our attention on the great power that prayer can bring into our lives. It was great to see the reality of that prayer work out in the healing service this afternoon. Although numbers wee small the...

craig1.jpg Here is a picture of one of our local heros in Bo'ness Craig Hannah. When he's not putting out fires he's firing up young people to make music. I've known Craig since he was a teenager. In fact he played the drums in the first Bogle Band line up way back in '87. Well thanks to Craig the young rock musicians in Bo'ness have a rehearsal room. It opened on Friday evening 21st September. Four bands all based in Bo'ness were headlining the night. Johnny Lapsley's...

[kml_flashembed movie="" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]We started our new Alpha this week at the Inchyra Grange Hotel, near Polmont. We're doing it as a joint venture this time with Polmont Old Parish Church. This must be at least the 30th or 40th course that I've led. I just love the idea of sitting down with people over a meal and sharing the essentials of the Christian faith. We don't use videos, I just do the...
