Top Ten for September 2011
Saying Sorry Isn't Enough was posted in July 2011. I say it isn't enough because it needs to be part of a process. These thoughts were triggered by Rupert Murdoch's 'We are Sorry' advert in UK national newspapers following the News of the World scandal.
What we British Really Mean posted in May 2011 is about how saying what you mean doesn't always mean people will understand what you mean.

9 Silly Ways to Illustrate Your Sermon posted in September 2011 is one of Dave Walker's cartoons about church life.

5 Senses of Love posted 14 April 2011 asks what does love look like, feel like, sound like, taste like smell like?
