Ten Prophecies

Ten prophecies for the New Year, in no particular order.

A politician will launch a political party called the Liberal Democrats based on the philosophy and policy of the Liberal Democrats as evidenced before the 2010 election, to be contrasted with a party in government that props up Conservative policies.

I'll get a job.

Someone in Nigeria tells me that millions of pounds have been already been transferred directly into my Building Society account and I discover this to be true.

My separated wife moves to Hull.

An artistic religious woman will realise that her best future is with me and opens herself up to a loving adventure.

Someone I sort of know who is an Anglican realises the score regarding expressions of belief and candidates for a Unitarian ministry. I know just the place.

On Sunday 3rd April, two days after April Fool's Day, Madpriest preaches to Newcastle Unitarians and rather likes the morning, who then, because of the denominational jungle telegraph, finds offers coming in from congregations all over the UK desperate to find ministers.

The Church of England dioceses wreck the possibility of the Anglican Communion Covenant becoming accepted by the mother Church.

I lecture at the 2011 Unitarian General Assembly on 'Sack the Organist: How to be a Church DJ'.

People readily accept that the ever whackier characters that form the Church in England and meet on Radio Chadderbox are purely creatures of my imagination.

Hope they come true. Here are mine.

I bet you don't. For anyone unsure, the point is that they are as likely to come true as my dog telling me it doesn't like chocolate biscuits - and I don't even have a dog!

Lesley said...

How many artistic religious women do you know ;)

I just altered my comment prior to your second comment.

Perhaps there should be an eleventh prophecy: that people (and I include myself) will read blog entries more slowly and carefully rather than dash between posts and webpages.

LOL - Glad to make your acquaintance anyway

Good show that you don't have a dog. Chocolate is bad for dogs:

I'm a very bad boy and he's a very bad dog. Bad dog. Oops, my imagination again. Apologies all around.
