  1. In France they seem to have snails with garlic and parsley butter, in fact they sell it as butter for snails. I once had a Cretan cook book and they had a number of recipes for snails, one of which was "Holy Thursday Snails.". Pineapple on pizza usually goes on top of ham and we call it Hawaiin pizza. It used to be quite popular but I don't think it is so much now. I like Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce and chopped chives on Scrabled egg. (We don't have any L&P as my daughter bought us Hendersons Yorkshire sauce as that is vegetarian, but I don't think it has much flavour.) Olive oil and chopped oregano on pizza.
  2. We have had much higher temperatures this winter. Heavy rain almost every day high winds for the last few days. I had Thai style king prawn and lemon grass fish cakes with chips and peas for lunch and egg salad for supper.
  3. As Rebecca said, it is to bring his death and resurrection to our memory as we forget so soon. The Jews were given the passover feast to remind them that God had bought them out of Egypt, but they soon forgot when they didn't keep the feast.
  4. Korma is very mild. It has a lot of coconut milk in it. It is not my favourite, I prefer something a it more spicy. I don't know of any Indian restaurants in our town, but we have at least two Nepalese restaurants. We have a lot of Nepalese in our town as mostly retired Ghurkas. I did omelette again today, but with smoked salmon and tomato.
  5. Mustard is yellow. Or at least has yellow colouring in. We have a brown mustard that they call French mustard but I have never seen anything like it in France. I always by my mustard in France, you can get it forte, strong or douce, mild, but they are all yellow. Today my son in law did chichen korma and rice for lunch, but it seemed to have much more vegetables that chicken. As we had a large lunch Kay and I only had a snack for supper.

    I take your point, Jim. We always refer to him as pastor. I quoted cut and pasted that from a WhatsApp message that was sent to our church members. I asked our pastor's wife, this evening, how he was getting on? She sad he is exhausted with a heavy preaching schedule. He preached five times yesterday and four times today.
  7. I never fry bacon, just pop it in the microwave an a plate covered with a sheet of kitchen tissue, and it crisps up in a few minutes. You have to be careful not to overdo it. There is so much water in modern bacon that it boils rather than fries, unless you spend a lot more for dry cured. You can't often find that in the stores though. For my omelette I use smoked lardons, small pieces of bacon.
  8. Tonight I did Bacon and cheese omelette with salad. I have that often when I can't think of anything else. It is a meal I can do in about ten minutes.
  9. A distant cousin of mine in Oz said on Facebook a week or so ago that there were 80 arrests, and on the news a few days ago there was a report that a firefighter had been arrested for starting seven fires.

    We have only had one fairly brief update and that was on Wednesday "Pastor has arrived safely at his destination and had a good meeting with the church there"

    Thank you Alan. Pastor said this should not be widely posted as there is a lot of muslim activity in the area, so I have edited out the pastors name. The visit is for 10 days Our pastor preached in Romania a few months ago and often visits Sri Lanka and India. This year he is hoping to go to Nepal to support a church there. The funeral tomorrow is in Northampton. The family asked pastor to take the service "Because we know you are a reigious man."
  12. This morning Pastor preached on Philippians 2 3:4-11 Pauls Testimony. In the morning services he is going through Phillipans This evening The Message was from Acts 2:37 "Brethren,What shall we do?" It was the Lord's supper and we welcomed a young couple into membership.

    Our Pastor is going to Ethiopia on Wednesday to support an Ethiopian friend Pastor xxxxx who has a church about 100 km (abt 63 miles) from Addis Ababa. Pastor xxxxx has had at least two attempts on his life and been threatened many times. We are praying for the Gospel that our pastor will preach and for the safety of both pastors. Pastor is also going to the midlands here on Monday, to preach at a funeral of his former boss who was not a believer. He accepted as long as the family knew that he would preach a message from the bible.
  14. The Catholic mass is called by them an unbloody sacrifice, where the bread is supposed to be turned into the actual body and blood of Christ sacrificed anew which goes against the bible teaching that Christ was sacrifice "Once for all" Hebrews 10:10. See also Hebrews 10:14
  15. I am not offended. I tend to follow Spurgeon on the subject in his commentary on Psalm 81, in The Treasury of David Verse 3. Blow up the trumpet in the new moon. Announce the sacred month, the beginning of months, when the Lord brought his people out of the house of bondage. Clear and shrill let the summons be which calls all Israel to adore the Redeeming Lord. In the time appointed, on our solemn feast day. Obedience is to direct our worship, not whim and sentiment: God's appointment gives a solemnity to rites and times which no ceremonial pomp or hierarchical ordinance could confer. The Jews not only observed the ordained month, but that part of the month which had been divinely set apart. The Lord's people in the olden time welcomed the times appointed for worship; let us feel the same exultation, and never speak of the Sabbath as though it could be other than "a delight" and "honourable." Those who plead this passage will keep such feasts as the Lord appoints, but not those which Rome or Canterbury may ordain. Verse 4. For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob. It was a precept binding upon all the tribes that a sacred season should be set apart to commemorate the Lord's mercy; and truly it was but the Lord's due, he had a right and a claim to such special homage. When it can be proved that the observance of Christmas, Whitsuntide, and other Popish festivals was ever instituted by a divine statute, we also will attend to them, but not till then. It is as much our duty to reject the traditions of men, as to observe the ordinances of the Lord. We ask concerning every rite and rubric, "Is this a law of the God of Jacob?" and if it be not clearly so, it is of no authority with us, who walk in Christian liberty. http://archive.spurgeon.org/treasury/ps081.php
  16. There is no similarity between Baptists and Catholics. Baptists have Christ as head of the Church. Catholics have a man as the head of the church, a man who claims to be as god on earth. The RCC has murdered millions of christians in its wars and Inquisitions. The inquisition was called "The Holy Office" . In 1890 it was still in action and may still be. If it had the power it would still be murdering Christians, but these days it is getting its way by infiltrating other churches through Churches Together. Today here in South East England two Baptist churches less than 20 miles from here, who are in Churches together have been having Lent classes and another believed in transubstantiation.
  17. Benedictines are best known for the alcoholic drink Benedictine.
  18. I have kindle on my PC. I was thinking of getting a Kindle Paper White for my wife, but she tried one and the text was too small for her. I have a 10 inch Samsung Galaxy tablet which I use mainly for reading my bible and books.
  19. Also, it is not the way to present the gospel.
  20. Sola Scriptura was only one of the five Solas of the reformation. They are Sola Scriptura, Sola Christus, Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, and Sola Deo Gloria. Scripture alone, Christ alone, Grace alone, Faith alone, The Glory of God alone.
  21. I can't remember what my user name is. We moved to Ashford over a year ago, and thankfully there is someone in our new Baptist Church who uses Linux. He put Linux Mint and new hard disk on my old laptop and Updated Lubuntu on a memory stick that NN sent to me some time ago. For which I am thankfull to him.
  22. Hi Salyan. Thanks for your reply. Your last point is what I was intending to convey, that of pastoral visits. In the past (19th century) People used to walk vast distances to church. Samuel Eyles Pierce rote in his memoires that on Christmas Eve 1813 he walked a fair distance into London, caught the stage to Maidstone (not a comfortable journey I should think as there were no made up roads) then walked to Faversham about 26 miles, preached twice the next da, and three times the following day, "It being the Lord's Day" then walked 10 miles to Canterbury for the new year. 5 years later he founded the first Baptist Church in Faversham. In the mid 1840's Jonathan Reeves of Rochester wrote that he was planning to walk to Faversham from his home , about 17 miles, to hear a particular at the Baptist Church. He and his friend got up at 6.00 am but it was such heavy rain that they had to delay their departure. Eventually they had to call their trip off as the heavy rain continued. Some time after I read that I read elsewhwere that with his mum he walked from Rochester to Faversham to hear William Huntington preach. As Huntigton died when Jonathan was about 11 and was not in good health for his last two years, he musyt have been quite young when he made those journeys. There is also an account that the pastor of a baptist church in the village of Egerton in Kent used to walk from his home in Sheerness to the chapel and back every Lord's day, a distance it is said was 20 miles. I looked it up on Via Michelin and that said the distance was more than that. My wife had a friend whose grandmother used to walk large distances to services, not because they were poor, but because they refused to pay a fare on Sunday. Having thought of that I guess I should perhaps withdraw my previous post.
  23. He set off to flee to Tarshish but didn't get there. He boarded the ship at Joppa, modern Jaffa.
