Solitude and unity: a medieval perspective

Like many of you, I spent yesterday morning, not at church, where I would usually be, but sitting on my sofa at home in front of a laptop, watching a livestream of my pastor preaching to an empty building. In just a week, it seems, everything has changed. The Covid-19 pandemic means that ordinary Sunday services, along with most other kinds of social gathering, won't be possible for some time to come. It's unprecedented and unsettling (though I'm very grateful for the technology that enables virtual connections of various types).

Is Prince Philip the Chosen One?

Is the Duke of Edinburgh God’s Chosen One?

There are people on the island of Tanna in the South Pacific Ocean who worship the Duke of Edinburgh as a god.

The islanders used to be committed cannibals and they ate the first two missionaries who came to Tanna.

More missionaries arrived, told them about Jesus and many of the locals became Christians.

They stopped eating each other and began to eat Jesus instead (John 6:54).

In the 1960s many of the islanders noticed Prince Philip in his wonderful, shiny, white uniform.
