Alexa: Who is God?

A few months ago, the CofE launched its Alexa ‘skill’, enabling users to ask the Church of England for prayers, explanations of faith and information about local church events and services.

“We’re thrilled to be launching the Alexa skill, to enable regular churchgoers and those exploring faith to connect with God in another way and at a time that’s right for them,” the Archbishop of York said.

How do you do it?

It’s easy! Once enabled you can launch the Church of England skill by saying: “Alexa, open the Church of England”

Fruit and veg of the Spirit?

For Paul, an ideal community shows love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. He called these qualities the ‘fruit of the Spirit’.

But is that it? Did Paul mean that as an exclusive list – or are there more qualities that he missed off? Some that didn’t make the final cut? And anyway, why call them fruit and not vegetables?

And who cares anyway?
