In my sermon for last Sunday I mention a new video from Church Army, a community of evangelists in the Church of England of which the clergy at St John’s are both members. Here it is.
This is Johnny Cash singing his song ‘Man in Black’ for the first time, and he begins with an explanation of how the song came to be. In case you’re wondering why I’m posting this, it links to my sermon for this morning about John the Baptist.
For those of you who have read my sermon for this week and have never heard of The Levellers here is their song that I mention. Enjoy!
This is especially for all those out there who really have never seen Star Wars. Here it is in one minute – brilliant!
Stuart Townend sings the worship hymn In Christ Alone.

I’m always interested when people come up with new ways of presenting the gospel story. I was particularly intrigued, therefore, when I came across this ‘Digital Nativity’, which someone has put together for an age when so many people rely upon the internet for their communication.

Posting the Youtube video of the acrobats at the Vatican brought to mind a Youtube video that a member of our congregation directed me to some time ago. It’s the entry procession at a wedding. I’m still waiting for a wedding couple to ask to do this at Saint John’s. It would be really cool, just as long as I didn’t have to join in.
Liturgical dance is one thing. Liturgical acrobatics at the Vatican is something else. I’m still not sure what I think about this. Neither, by the look on his face, is the Holy Father, but the nuns seem to like it.
