Each year I marvel at the dedication, selflessness and sheer guts of runners pushing themselves beyond all reasonable endurance for the sake of strangers.

You may think it is a funny way to start an article on ‘Caring’ by mentioning the 26th President of the USA, Theodore Roosevelt (1858 – 1919). A distant uncle to World War ll President Franklin D.

Christine Fletcher’s Cornish Treasures

After many years in Cornwall, Chris and Nick Fletcher moved back to be near family in Dorset in the summer of 2015. They soon felt very much at home at Broadstone Methodist Church. Chris had been heavily involved in the Cornish Art world, both in St Tudy and latterly as chairman of Constantine Art Society and her work has been exhibited from Polperro to Mawnan Smith. Living in Broadstone, Chris joined the Poole & East Dorset Art Society (PEDAS) and also the Canford Heath Art Society, (CHAS).      See full story...

This is always a special moment for pilgrims realising that, after all the planning and preparations, they have actually arrived in Jerusalem. The scene is dominated by the 7th century Dome of the Rock. This mosque with the iconic golden dome commemorates Muhammad’s ascension to heaven. However, the ancient rock on which it stands is holy to the Jews as the rock where Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac.      See full story...
