For the benefit of strangers

The last 24 hours has been even stranger than usual in terms of who has found this blog, and so I thought I would do a “useful post”. The stats tell me that people came here using the following range of search terms:

picture of Jesus caught in the storm December 16, 2009, 4:55 am
sex worship December 16, 2009, 12:03 am
Bridgette Jones porn December 15, 2009, 7:00 pm

bullying + spiritual journey December 15, 2009, 12:57 pm

As you can see the combined terms of “sex” and “worship” appear to be ones which bring people here….not sure what that says, but hey. It is an area I do not have expertise on, but if anybody stumbles across this post when looking into this area I can direct you to a really useful book, Memories of Bliss: God, Sex and Us by Jo Ind. Memories of BlissIt’s not a how to manual, if you’re looking for one of those the only thing I can direct you to is the “Prayer Book for Spouses” which the Catholics have produced and was reviewed in the Mail and other places. Interesting that this one talks of praying before sex, I think a joint prayer of thanksgiving for your love when snuggling after a good love making session may also be an interesting idea for them to add in any updated version.

For the anybody looking for pictures the Tate has a wonderful collection on line, under Art on Demand on their site. You need to find the artist and then use the A-Z search, the short cut to “religion and beliefs” takes you to relatively few images.

If people are wanting to know about Bullying and Spiritual Journey they could probably do worse than search around Ship of Fools which I am sure must have a discusssion thread on that type of thing somewhere.

Janet and John people should be ok. They know Google is their friend.

If anybody is looking for life in Herne Bay I could make a very cruel joke, similar to the one I first heard when I moved there which said, “people move to Herne Bay to die, and then forget why they’ve come”. Alternatively I would say pop into the Friday morning coffee shop at Herne Bay Baptist Church and have a chat with some of the lovely peeps in there and they can give you some pointers, which may go beyond just get on the bus to Canterbury.

As for the people who come looking for porn all I can give is a message to think about what you’re looking for and why. The Jo Ind book I referred to before may make an interesting read for you because it talks about what the purposes of sex and DIY are within it, (and not in your “typical” guilt filled Christian way).

Finally, as this is a public service type blog post, I’ll end by directing people in churches to an article about the threat to existing wireless micraphone frequencies on the front of this weeks Baptist Times. It appears that the digital switchover could end up costing churches loads of money because of the planned changes to radio frequencies.
