    Goodbye church bells, hello call to prayer...

    Just replicating a news item, it is just a petition... Mind you if they get enough to sign it, and they probably will, it will have to be debated. Interesting when a friend was married a couple of years ago she could not have the bells because they were deemed too noisy...

    Channel 4 is to have a month-long daily broadcast of the Muslim call to prayer.

    Sometimes I am left flabbergasted. Bearing in mind the times will alter throughout the UK as to the exact timing of the call to prayer, this is an absolute joke. ---------------------------------------------------------- An insult to all faiths: Channel 4's plan to air the daily Muslim call to...

    Prayer for my mother

    I do believe in the power of prayer so if anybody would be kind enough to say a prayer for my mother I would be really grateful. Heart attack yesterday and we are waiting for the scan results to know the extent of the brain damage. Thank you in advance.

    A little prayer please

    For those of you who do, please include my son in law in your prayers tonight - he's only 31 and had a heart attack this morning. He's still having tests so we don't know the extent of the damage but as you can imagine, I'm worried sick but trying to be cheerful for my daughter and two-year old...

    Prayer Clock

    Many years before we ever set foot in Turkey, we had a prayer clock. I loved it. It would call the 5 prayer times. The sound was really beautiful. Of all things, when we moved here we realised it was no longer working and, sadly, threw it away. Can you buy such clocks here in Turkey? And I...

    Sacked For Offering A Prayer

    'A teacher who was sacked after offering to pray for a sick student says she has been treated like a criminal.' I had to read this story a couple of times to make sure I hadn't misunderstood it. The bit that really gets me is her employer telling her that sharing a prayer with a pupil could...

    Strange question I know but I actually want one as a bit of a joke present for my hubby who kneels in front of our log burner for nights on end, I understand it's a man thing! :wink: Does anyone know where I would be able to purchase such a thing in the Fethiye area ?

    A Parent's Prayer

    Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray my sanity to keep. For if some peace I do not find, I'm pretty sure I'll lose my mind. I pray I find a little quiet Far from the daily family riot May I lie back--not have to think about what they're stuffing down the sink, or who they're with, or where...
