  1. He is wasting his time trying to reform the RCC. Its moto is Sempe Eem, eEver the same. H Grattan Guinness visited the Inguisition (Named The Holy Office) in Riome, with a Baptist Missionary in the late 1800's and asked the Dominican in charge is Rome has changed. The answer was "Rome never changes, as she was in her youth so she is and so she ever will be).
  2. Tonight we are having fish'n' chips with mushy peas .from the chippy.
  3. Our church owns it's own building and manse so does not pay any rent. In fact I don't think I have ever been a member of a church which did not own its building. We have a new pastor starting in August who has six children so will need a larger house. He will continue to live in his current house and the church will pay his rent, until he can find a suitable property nearer the church, then we will have to consider how to proceed. The options seem to be to either pay his rent, or to buy a property jointly with him.
  4. Had fish, chips and peas for lunch. We ate out as I went to our previous town as one of the butchers there makes Merguez sausages and I bought a kilo of them to freeze for when I do cous cous. They seem to have a lot less fat in them than those we used to buy in France. The butcher also makes Toulouse sausages (Don't tell Macron) and I have never tried them so I bought a couple of them to try. Joined our daughter next door for curry this evening.
  5. Chicken and leek gratin with roast vegetables.
  6. Fried lamb leg steak, Roast vegetables (potatoes, carrot, parsnip, fennel, red onion and tomato) Steamed green beans and cellery, servid with mint sauce.
  7. Here in England meat is expensive, but most vegetables are reasonable. There is much competition in the stores so it keeps the prices down. One of our TV chefs, Jamie Oliver, visited a farm and they said they had to discard about half their crop because they didn't meet supermarket rules carrots and parsnips were either too big or too small or not strait enough. Jamie persuaded one supermarket chain to allow him to expetiment by having a section for "wonky produce" which he sold cheaper. It was a hit and a number of stores do wonky vegetables at a cheaper price. One labels them as "perfectly imperfect" I had scampi and chips for lunch and ham omelet and asparagus for supper. Now we are older we don't eat so much so that makes our pensions go further. Invicta (David)
  8. My daughter gave me some of her leftover curry for lunch, chicken tikka masala. saag aloo and rice. Not sure what we will have for supper.
  9. Pizza is not my favourite, I only ha e them when I can't think of anything else, I don't mind my home made pizza. The last time we had a delivery of Pizza was for my grandson's 18th Birthday and they were from Papa John's. My grandson is a big fan of pizza. I didn't like Papa John's at all.. my wife and I had our 53rd wedding anniversary in Maech.
  10. I served roast duck breasts in plum sauce for lunch with my grandson, my wife had camembert bakes with raspberry sauce and we all had roast parsnip, carrot, red onion , steamed potatoes, green beans and broccoli my wife and grandson also had mushrooms . I always season my roast vegetables with salt, black pepper, garlic powder and finely ground herbes de Provence.
  11. Oh that must have been sudden. I last received a message from Allan just three weeks ago when he se good wishes to me on my birthday.
  12. Had sirloin steak, chips and green beans for lunch, will have scrambled eggs with chives on toast with Lea and Perrins Worcester sauce for supper. As it is my birthday,I invite every body to have a cake or a cookie perhaps.
  13. We are still in lockdown so we have not been able to meet with anyone except my daughter and some of her family who live at the same address. We have been able to have one service at church and from the 21st march we will be able to have an evening service as well. That is my birthday. We will have to spray the chairs between each service. 2 weeks ago my grandaughter and the husband returned from Nice in France and twas hey have to be self isolating in the back annexe, 1t was her 21st birthday last week so my daughter went to thw chippie and got some takeaway chips while her husband cooked some steaks. No restaurants are are to open as yet. Today I did spaghegti bolonaise.
  14. Cous Cous yesterday and today and English chilli con carne fpr the two days before that. I like to have Merguez sausages with cous cous which I used to buy in France where we went shopping about once a month, but we have not neen there since at least Junuary due to lockdown. We could go in the summer but declined because of the price hike. We used to pay about £27.00 for a day return, but in the summer the cheapest I could fine was £160.00 on the ferry. I knew that a butcher in my old hometown made his own Merguez but he only does them from time to time, so I called and asked him when he would be doing them and I went and bought a kolo each for my daughter and I and a bit more for my grandson who was staying with us at the time, but lives in. the midlands. He later sent me a whtatsap message saying he had found some up there but they were a lot dearer than mine.
  15. Concerning point 2A. Surely it was because Cain did not choose the best for God as Abel did, but just chose randomly.
  16. That is JW teachig. If you read |Herodotus. you will see that the Greeks believed Shrol was where the devil lived.
  17. Our church live streams to YouTube for thye |sunday servive and the Tuuuesday Bible Study and Zoom for the Thursday orayer meeting. We don't have internet at the church. My previous church sues Zoom for the Sunday Service and Wednesday meeting. My friend who is pastor of a small church in remote Scotland, live streams Sunday services amd a daily service to Facebook.
  18. On the seventh day God rested. The Sabbath was not one of the things laid on Gentile believers at the Jerusalem council, led by James.
  19. I usually have them when I can't think of anything else.
  20. From our psstor. [13:17, 05/08/2020] Pastor Chris Buss: Thank you pastor for your prayers and concerns. What we witnesses was an unprecedented and unbelievable blast that we haven't seen throughout the whole war. By the mercy of God only we are all safe and the damages to the church are manageable. We had some minor injuries for some members but all are not fatal. Thank God again for his mercy and grace on us as we believe it could have had a more devastating consequences. Thank you for the prayers as they are much appreciated and all what is needed for now. With the many issues simultaneously we are experiencing in this country, we need prayers to preserve our people from loosing hope and depression. Thank you again for your brotherly love and prayers. Best regards and blessings. Pastor Antoine Skaff Beirut [13:18, 05/08/2020] Pastor Chris Buss: Via Pastor Jonathan Northern
  21. The feast of the unleavened bread was to remind the Jews that when the Lord brought them out of Egypt after the passover that they did not have time to proove their bread as they left in such a hurry. The Jews eat unleavened bread at the passover. A jewish man once demonstrated the passover at a previus church I was in, and he showed the unleavened bread shich was like a large water biscuit about 10 inches square, as I remember. Yes it is part of the passover celebrations.
