Speeding in St John

Speeding in St John

The parish of St John holds for me some wonderful memories. I vividly recall the first time I looked over the walls of the parish church and realized that there was beauty as far as my eyes could see.  I was awestruck at the coastline, the rolling hills and the innumerable shades of green which […]

An effective Caribbean response needed to Trump

An effective Caribbean response needed to Trump

But where has he learnt to put ‘hole’ on the end of a profane expression to deepen the insult? I feel like that must be part of the language pattern of the same people from these predominantly Africa Diaspora and African countries which so many other parts of the world find to be problems and […]

Christians have a role to play in politics

Christians have a role to play in politics
