Tanak (Old Testament), Ketuvim Netzarim (New Testament)
Favorite version of Scriptures:
I am very much at the exploring stage, and my responses to some of the questions show this, so for some things it will be "watch this space". I'm a committed Christian from an evangelical background, and have belonged to churches which were Episcopalian, Baptist, Mennonite and currently a Celtic Christian Community. My reasons for exploring include some of the books that I have read, vocational issues which I believe to be Scriptural, but which don't add up in other contexts, and a concern for the integrity of my response to Scripture and my liturgical practice.
I will shortly be moving to Liverpool, following the death of my mother, whose home I shared during the final months of her life (my family come from London, and Mum had retired to Norfolk).
I have a background in psychiatric nursing, a commitment to poor and marginalised people and four cats.
I enjoy singing (alto) and like music which is gentle and worshipful - for example, "Lord, You Have My Heart" and "Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence". I also enjoy Elizabethan music.
Books, books, and more books! especially religion, history and allegory (e.g. C.S. Lewis's interplanetary series). Cookery, hospitality, walking and knitting. I love problem solving and batting ideas about, and anything to do with words (I have Bookworm on the computer and have to ration myself severely as it's really addictive).
Favorite Television Shows and Movies:
I got out of the habit of watching TV when I started doing shift work, because I couldn't follow anything (videos were only just coming in, which really dates me!).
I enjoyed Shadowlands, Lord of the Rings and some of the Narnia films (I actually prefer the older ones) and was deeply disappointed by Moonacre, which wasn't at all faithful to the book.
