Parliamentary expenses – the last word

Heard on Radio 4 (no less) the other day: ‘The MPS have milked the gravy train to the hilt’. Quite.

And now for more profuse apologies: If you are wondering why I haven’t blogged for weeks, blame it all on Facebook, the second biggest timewaster in history (decide for yourself what the first is…). I also had Bible notes to write on Proverbs, and half-term in the middle of them, so not much blogging time. But FB is the biggest culprit.

Must try harder, as the school report said…

  1. It does suck one’s time into a black hole, doesn’t it?

    Great to hear from you again though: and prayers as you write the notes on the fascinating book of Proverbs. May I ask is it difficult to write notes on a book that, unlike the historical books, is a collection of sayings? Or are there similarities between the sayings and you group them? Or something else? Just curious me.

  2. I was only writing on chapter 22-24 which are the ‘thirty sayings of the wise’. And yes, I did group them into subjects, and mostly looked at just three or four verses a day on a common theme. The hardest part was commending the wisdom of Proverbs without turning them into ‘rules’ and forgetting about grace!

    Actually next Sunday I have to preach on Proverbs at my church, so I’m hoping to ‘recycle’ some of the material!
