I think I’m funny, and sometimes, others do, too

Happy New Year from London!

I took these from Waterloo Bridge — after waiting there for about 5 hours!


Durham Cathedral in the snow

We went to an Evensong last night in the quire, and a communion service this morning in a side chapel with only three of us, another person, the priest, and her assistant!

After taking too many photos on Tuesday, we woke up this morning to a new blanket of snow. Here are a few photos:

Monday, December 20; Audrey (age eight) and I really wanted to climb the tower, but ice at the top caused it to be closed to visitors

Tuesday, December 21; Durham Cathedral and Durham Castle are located on a peninsula

Wednesday, December 22, in the morning snow

Inside All Souls Langham in London

Today we went to the 9:30 a.m. service at All Souls Church, Langham Place here in London. John Stott is Rector Emeritus at this church, which is the last standing church built by noted architect John Nash (1752-1835).

The worship service was a “contemporary” style, accompanied by trumpet, cello, guitar, drums, and piano. Roger Salisbury gave an excellent sermon, essentially on Matthew 1:18-25, that reminded us of our need for a Savior.

Here’s a look at the inside; I made some other notes in the captions below:

The front of All Souls Langham; note the giant Christmas tree. If you look closely at the overhead screen, you'll see a fetal image with a halo! "He's on His Way" is the theme of Advent.

This beautiful painting of Christ, with his hands bound, hangs at the front of the church.

The preacher used this pulpit to rise over the congregation and hover around the room. Just kidding. But it looked like a personal transport vehicle from Star Wars. A bit out of place in a church interior of white with gold trim!

I first saw the exterior of this church last summer. Click here to see how it looks on the outside.

Present your gifts unto God, or at least near him

Remember the feeling you had after you first saw The Matrix? I finally saw Inception. Wow.

Where John Stott is Rector Emeritus: All Souls Langham Place

I stumbled upon this church today, roughly three blocks off Oxford Circus in London, while Kristi and the girls were scooping up all kinds of clothing inside John Lewis and M&S. Check out the plaques below.
