I have been promising to open a section of this blog for addresses, sermons, etc I have done in German. I have now given up trying to work out how to do it. So, I am about to post a load of texts dating from February 2008 to June 2012. I can’t think of another way of getting them on here. Future German texts will appear on this main page, accompanied by some embarrassment – I know it looks a bit of a pose, but I can’t get around it any other way.

There are obviously common themes. This is partly because of what I was asked to speak on, but also because of the limitations of my German. I always get help from friends, to whom I owe a great debt of gratitude. Sounding silly in your own language is your own fault, but sounding silly in someone else’s language is sillier.
