And the Big News today from a Faith Perspective is that Van Gogh is dead. Van Gogh wasn't clever enough, and just a bit too mad, to be a priest like his father and his father's father.

It's the 150th anniversary of his death. Anniversaries are great. It's always the anniversary of something and they mean you don't have to talk about the messy business of what's actually in the news. You can just waffle on about something safe instead, like Art.

A sport is in the news. It's not cricket so let's talk about cricket. Sport, especially cricket, is a really good thing. It only becomes a problem when people treat it like a religion. The same is very much true of religion.

Art's great. Well that's enough about art. Let's talk about homeless people, which brings me to Jesus. Ah, yes, Jesus, I bet no one's mentioned Jesus lately.
