If you think to, please pray for an ex-pastor and his family in our neighbourhood. He recently lost his much loved wife to a sudden illness, and he is left behind with four young children.

Lord, bless and bring comfort to our brother. Bring comfort, healing, and understanding to the children who will miss their mother. May your mercy, grace, and love be poured out on all who are hurting and missing their friend. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen
Amen to that prayer!
Yes, Amen.The funeral is Friday.
I am an ex-pastor with five young children. I can't even imagine what that must be like. Amen to the prayer.

I am New Testament Tutor at St Mellitus College and St Paul's Theological Centre, London. I'm also a Visiting Lecturer at King's College London. Less well known is that I am also the original writer of the now famous song “Beans, beans, good for your heart…”, and inventor of the “you must have fallen out of the stupid/ugly tree” repertoire of insults. I am the main proponent of the Human Faecal Matter for Brains Opening in chess (actually not what I wanted to call my brilliant and original opening Knight manoeuvre 1.Na3, 2.Nc1), and I also claim to have independently discovered the haiku™ poetry form (© Copyright Chris Tilling 2007) without any help from the Japs. My blog, Chrisendom, is primarily occupied with biblical and theological themes – especially those Apostle Paul shaped, but I try as best as I can to squeeze in a decent amount of inappropriate baloney on the way.
