The Gaslight Anthem (with Bruce Springsteen) - The 59 Sound - Live at Glastonbury Was watching some Reading/Leeds highlights on the BBC red buton tonight and came across these guys - The Gaslight Anthem. They’re from New Jersey and they’re pretty great. There’s an obvious Springsteen influence; so much so that he joined them onstage at Glastonbury. Here’s the vid.

Dangers Of Leadership
Below is a post from the always great Youth Specialties blog. It’s a personal and poignant post and, as someone who is in Christian leadership, I totally get where the author is coming from. Having said that, I don’t (re)post this with a spirit of self-pity. While I’m sure all leaders feel like this at times, I count myself very blessed to minister along side Louis, Sue, and...

IKEA abandons Futura for Verdana.
Warning!! (super) nerdery to follow: I think futura has to be my favourite typeface. Its so clean and minimalist: Wes Anderson uses it brilliantly in all of his movies: CORRECTION: The font above is Helvetica not Futura! (As pointed out by philipallenphoto in the comments) And stupidly Ikea is changing it for Verdana. Fools! via lonelysandwich
Particularly great BBC radio shows: Craig Charles’ Funk & Soul Show where I discovered 6ix Toys. The vid above is an in-stuido performance. Gilles Peterson Simon Mayo (& Mark Kermode) They also cover both Glastonbury & Reading/Leeds.

Attitudes towards the church: nationally it's...
Interesting piece from the Guardian looking at the contribution to society fath groups make & comparing public attitudes towards the church with attitudes towards the NHS: Perhaps the picture isn’t quite a bleak as all that. Ask people what they think about the NHS the answer tends to be pretty sceptical – it’s in dreadful condition, long waiting-lists, dirty hospitals, low...

Why I work with young people
I’m doing a wee bit of speaking at the Bridge of Don youth away day next weekend. Before I started preparing for the talks I opended up my Bible to read a pslam and pray, this is what I turned to Psalm 83:1-5 1 O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God! 2 For behold, your enemies make an uproar; those who hate you have raised their heads. 3 They lay...
A timely message I think… Whether its RF’s article that insults Louis or on this site when i’m trying to explain theological issues clearly & come off like an uncaring jerk, every follower of Jesus has to strive for what this video talks about.

Misinformation abounds as well as some dirty tactics like the one above. But its OK there’s a twitter campaign!
