The Book of Joy will be discussed at our next Good Faith Book Club, this Saturday from 2.00pm. Written by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, it talks about lasting happiness in a changing world. It was written as 'a gift for others' after Archbishop Tutu flew to India to celebrate His Holiness's 80th birthday. The two friends looked back on their long lives to answer the single question of how do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering? The kettle is on from 1.45pm and we are always away by 4pm. Anyone is welcome to join us.

A few years ago, I started talking to Tom, a young homeless man, and when I asked if there was anything that I could do to help, he said that he had been given food and drink, but his hands were freezing (he said that hot drinks helped as you can wrap your hands around them until the drink goes cold). Whilst he was talking, I thought of my own hands — all snug inside my woolly gloves. So, I...
