Trying out the MarsEdit blogging tool to put together a few highlights from 2014. Works okay, on the whole, but doesn’t have the ability to easily embed YouTube videos or do Amazon lookups etc.
Most enjoyable books of 2014
Didn’t really have have a lot of time to read much this year but the following stuck out as memorable reads:
- “The Chaplain’s War” by Brad Torgersen.
- “Of bone and thunder : a novel” by Chris Evans.
- “The severed streets” by Paul Cornell.
Most enjoyable films of 2014
A shout out here to Guardians of the Galaxy, but the film I enjoyed most this year (and I watched an awful lot of them on long-haul flights) was Next Goal Wins, the film about the American Samoa football (soccer) team and their quest to qualify for the World Cup.
Most enjoyable TV series
A toss-up here so I’ll have to call it a tie. On the one hand the new Constantine series has some potential to evolve into something interesting if it’s allowed to, while on the other hand I really enjoyed the cancelled series “Almost Human“.
Most enjoyable trip/event
The time I spent in Cape Town with the cohorts and advisors from George Fox’s Leadership and Global Perspectives Doctor of Ministry (DMin) programme was a highlight. Looking forward to the next meeting up.
