A what?  A “Pecha Kucha?” Huh??  Yes, one of those . . . It is a presentation style that began in Japan and it literally means, “chatter”.  A stimulation to conversation and discussion.  Essentially, the presenter (me in this case) has 20 slides with just 20 seconds to speak to each one . . .......

Here I am riffing on a “Thought for the Day” message from 2012, thinking about what Christ’s Ascension tells us about God’s love and His presence. We are not alone, YOU are not alone . . .  [Edit : 16/06/16] I have not been able to get “Thought 4 The Day” (Radio 4) out of......
