I thought this was really interesting. Makes you think about the latest innovation "Black Friday" and its impact on Christmas, and about the issue with prayer advertising in the cinemas! Everything changes and everything stays the same...!

I'd be interested in this, but the link won't work. Or is it a problem with my phone?

I can't seem to work out how to turn it into an openable link today - I'm on my phone - it usually works! Have a look at the BL website though - I read it in the most recent newsletter.

Clancy Any connection? Err no - I just thought it was interesting and Christmassy. The BL is a free resource. I really like it and it livened up my commute for 15 mins.

I've bookmarked it. It's really interesting and I am surprised at myself, for not having found it before. Such stuff is usually just my thing smile

I was just wondering blush

I've book marked it for a train journey later. smile
