A Viable Covid19 Vaccine

So, here you have a short diary of her frailty, I could write one every day, but the bits of the story she shares are already know to her and we have talked about the bits when we were separated in hospital. I pray for her daily in thanksgiving that she is still with me. :votive2: :votive2: I think...

A Viable Covid19 Vaccine

I have been invited to a trial of a vaccine. But I feel that given Jen's vulnerability since her stroke, it would be unfair to take part. If I were to be given a Placebo, which is a possibility and than caught the virus, I would endanger Jen as well as myself. So, I have declined the invitation. If...

The patron saint of the Internet?

My vote would be for the mathematician and teacher, George Boole, who laid the mathematical ground for computing. His life and work are commemorated in a stained glass window in Lincoln Cathedral. Eileen Harrison wrote: "This is known as the "Teaching Window". The story of "the calling of Samuel" in...

"Now that the daylight fills the sky
We lift our hearts to God on high
The He, in all we do or say,
Would keep us free from harm today." [Iam lucis]

Prayer - for the many people with loved ones they are unable to visit because of Covid-19.

Tier Two COVID19 Regulations in England

Thanks for the response, Pam. Much appreciated. The pandemic is progressing much as expected, with regional flare ups popping up across the UK - and this is likely to continue for some time. For now we need to control our behaviour and minimise any risks. High hopes for "herd immunity" and vaccinati...

Forgiveness

I was very pleased to hear this story, Pam. Too seldom does such a positive light shine on prisoners. I shudder to think how difficult it must be to get through a prison sentence and come out a better person. I would like to feel compassion, hope and confidence in our prison system, and make no apol...

Tier Two COVID19 Regulations in England

Whatever rules are suggested or demanded, we can choose to set ourselves a higher bar to protect ourselves and others. Firstly, we can avoid making the situation worse by taking risks. We can regard what governments demand as a "minimum standard" because we can do better by being more careful, more ...

....I fear, however, that CO-19 will become part of our epidemiological backdrop and we can expect it to offer an on-going threat for some time. It is not in the nature of effective pathogens to kill off their prey species and fizzle out - why would they? They will "want" to keep us going for as lo...

Hi Roger I hope that your experiment at Sunday's worship allows you to continue attending, but whatever decision you make, it will be for your own and others protection. I will await your outcome with interest. I've attended 2 services so far, Ernest - 20ish congregations - spaced out, masked and j...
