Captain Phillips (2013)

Rated M
Starring Tom Hanks

When I think of pirates I either think of someone downloading the latest episode of Game of Thrones or Johnny Depp prancing around with a sword.

In Captain Phillips, when warned of pirates in the area, they don’t prepare for a revival of Pirates of Penzance. They are scared for their lives. And they have every right to be. Because Captain Phillips is the true story of a merchant ship that is boarded by pirates. And the reality of this situation makes this one of the most gripping thrillers I’ve seen.

Wisdom: A Beginners Guide – Proverbs 1:1-7

ProverbsWe’ve started a new sermon series here at St Luke’s, looking at the book of Proverbs.

One thing that didn’t make the recording: at the evening service I quoted Conan the Barbarian – which had half the church laughing and the other half of the church wondering why everyone else was laughing.

What is best in life?

“To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.”
