Nick Lear from the Baptist Union always ends his great emails with some form of joke.  The last couple have ended with lines from the wonderful Peter Kay.  The last one was too good not to post: Peter Kay’s Universal Truths including …

  1. Having been to Taize most years for five years now, I know the brothers there manage technology and the lack of it rather well. In fact, one of the brothers I know well is the webmaster and their page is excellent and very modern, even though the community itself isn’t old fashioned as such but has no unnecessary technology, if you know waht I mean.

    The brother described to us once how each of the brothers is expected to learn a new foreign language so they can welcome people from that country when the visit and learning how to make a webpage was just another such language really.
