Wishing you a Happy Christmas and a Peaceful 2018

  1. A nice Christmas present to us all would be the disclosure of your identity. Why not, after all? My suggestions: a former journalist, or perhaps a retired archdeacon, and someone based in Llandaff?

    1. Only when you reveal your identity and origins "Rob"! My money's on the Bridgend / Pyle / Sarn area or my neck of the woods, good ol' Maesteg.

    2. Like the voice crying in the wilderness A.B. you will continue to be heard in 2018. You shine a light into dark places and you enable the faithful to continue to be heard.
      You ensure that there is no hiding place for those who would deceive us.

    A happy Christmas to you too Ancient Briton and many thanks for another year of discovery and entertainment.
    May you, your sources, contributors and Martin Shipton enjoy an equally productive 2018 shining the bright spotlight in all the dark grubby corners --Bazza, the coven, glove puppet Gerwhine and Caiaphas want to remain hidden.
    Keep following the money and drain the swamp.

    1. The number of pageviews speak for themselves I bet the C in W would love to have the following that this blog has, please continue and stop the takeover of the once christian faithful church.

    2. Hear hear Abandoned.

      There's a reason the RB and Dioscesan websites don't display a view count.

      The same reason The Bell no longer publishes a Communicant count!

  4. Pondering Pastor: what a year of revelation - thank you ancient Briton for your Stirling blogging. Perhaps due to your efforts rewards may come forth as 2018 begins.
    It has been a real treat to learn the inner workings of the C in W. Long may the blog be read for its in part humourous and sometimes dark night of the soul contributions. I'm sure there will be many twists and turns in the year ahead. Draining the swamp a good start. Joyous Christmas and eventful New Year PP.

  5. A happy Christmas to one and all, near and far, and thanks again to AB and all contributors for fighting the good fight. Fiat justitia ruat caelum!

    On a festive note, dear readers, I've come to prefer a traditional roast goose over the usual turkey. Another alternative is to cook a fine capon: here are two recipes I've used in the past:

    Sausage stuffed and boneless: http://www.cleveland.com/cooking/index.ssf/2015/12/sausage_stuffed_boneless_capon.html

    Boned and stuffed with nuts: http://www.houseandgarden.co.uk/recipes/main-courses/boned-capon-chestnuts-dried-cranberries

    Either can be highly recommended. I'd take roast capon over a tired old turkey any day!

    1. That tired old Turkey Caiaphas has decided to save the wrong 'un and condemn the rest to hell.

      But Cranberries and Chestnut stuffed sounds delicious.

      One wonders if Martin Shipton has that recipe?

  6. Spotted wandering around The Green on Boxing Day.
    Straight from Milan, this year's ab-fab essential must-have Christmas fashion accessories are......... wait for it....... pale pink Chinos.
    Ideal for matching pale pink clerical shirts and fantabulous evenings involving copious quantities of pink-Gin & Prosecco (conceals all the spillage so effectively did't ya know daaahhlings)

  7. Do we have more details of the Charlady's reported tirade within the cloisters?
