Prayer, I still don’t understand (3)

Pogue, There’s a word, a concept, that is largely lost in todays world. In fact, you probably won’t even use the word unless you’re a lawyer. The word is covenant, a covenant being a contract, a binding pledge between two parties.

Sometimes it’s just a good thing.

Dear Pogue, Recently we received a text from someone, a person with religious inclinations, announcing that a new chapter of their life was about to begin and God would be blessing them along the way because, well, God had planned this new chapter.

Then as I savour the aroma of freshly roasted coffee this noise filled my head.😍 … Continue reading Twice in a Week!

Ain’t no favourites.

Dear Pogue, Here’s a thing. I’ve been watching the World Athletics Championships in Doha. Oh, forgive me for jumping straight in. How are you. I trust you are well. OK?
