As I headed to a retreat house to do the work, I realised that the only CD left in the car was Gary Barlow's 2013 album Since I saw you last.

Methodist Minister, Rev Ben Clowes has produced a series of Bible studies which relates scripture to living in the 21st Century. Using the music of Gary Barlow’s highly emotional 2013 solo album, Since I Saw You Last as a backdrop, the studies look at how as a Church we connect with people most often at times of rites of passage. Since We Saw You Last offers a clear creative way to run a study or fellowship group to deepen discipleship. If people are searching for meaning in their lives, we need to speak into this as Christians and Ben believes this is at the heart of the links between the ‘I am’ sayings, rites of passage and the words we hear so eloquently put by Gary Barlow. Christians must be a people who reach out and share the good news of Jesus’ love with the world.

Have you ever desired to escape and live simply? Have you ever fantasized about moving to a small town? Having spent half of my forty-three year career as a high school principal and volunteer pastor in small towns and counties with less than five thousand people, I learned that bliss was superficial. No matter how positive, people resisted change, especially with a newcomer serving as the agent of change. Kinfolk mattered more than issues. To survive, newcomers walked a fine line and had to learn who controlled and who was related to whom. Relationships mattered more than issues. Good versus evil became obvious. In Freedom's Tree, Rock Creek Valley resembled Canaanite cities with heavily fortified bulwarks. Interstate highway construction had decimated the economy and school reorganization altered valley culture. Perceived as invaders, newcomers arrived in Rock Creek at God's direction, while a murderer escaped detection and residents presumed another's guilt.

The one woman he wants is the one he cannot have. Former foster kid Sebastian Grant has leveraged his intelligence and hard work to become a pediatric heart surgeon. But not even his career success can erase the void he's tried so hard to fill. Then he meets high school teacher Leah Montgomery and his fast-spinning world comes to a sudden stop. He falls hard, only to make a devastating discovery--Leah is the woman his best friend set his heart on months before. Leah's a math prodigy who's only ever had one big dream--to earn her PhD. Raising her little brother put that dream on hold. Now that her brother will soon be college bound, she's not going to let anything stand in her way. Especially romance . . . which is far less dependable than algebra. When Leah receives surprising results from the DNA test she submitted to a genealogy site, she solicits Sebastian's help. Together, they comb through hospital records to uncover the secrets of her history. The more powerfully they're drawn to each other, the more strongly Sebastian must resist, and the more Leah must admit that some things in life--like love--can't be explained with numbers.

In 1947 Leonard and Reva Brooks left for Mexico where Leonard planned to study painting for a year. In Mexico they discovered a vibrant, sometimes even dangerous, society and a dynamic artistic community, unlike the mundane world they had left behind in Canada with its stale and unwelcoming artistic scene. Invigorated by their new environment Leonard and Reva ended up staying for over half a century, playing a key role in establishing San Miguel de Allende as a world-famous art colony. In this new biography, John Virtue chronicles the lives of these two important artists and offers an intimate look at these complex and creative people. Virtue describes how they were caught up in the McCarthy era of Communist witch hunts and blacklisted in the United States. He details their close friendships with luminary figures such as Marshall McLuhan, Earle Birney, and the Mexican art icon David Alfaro Siqueiros, as well as a host of others. As Leonard became a fixture in the Mexican art scene Reva's photography quickly garnered international recognition, applauded by photographers Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. In 1975 the San Francisco Museum of Art selected her as one of the top fifty female photographers of all time. With tales of deportations, shootouts, murder attempts, failures, and triumphs, Leonard and Reva Brooks is a biography of two creative people caught up in interesting times.

Consuelo sat watching her air force pilot husband pack his flight bag and prepare for a mission. The mission was for an undetermined number of days to an unspecified location. He could not tell her where he was going nor how long he would be away. She was a seasoned military wife. She knew not to ask. Jeff was a B-2 bomber pilot. She sat quietly trying to beat back tears as she became lost in memories of their lives together. She had to be strong. She didn’t want to show signs of weakness and give him anything to worry about on the home front. She dreaded the lonely days and nights that lay ahead while she waited and wondered where he was, and if he was safe. She knew she would be notified if he wasn’t. Days later, Jeff called. “It is just a cat and mouse, waiting game. We are hoping against hope and praying with all our might that we do not have to take off unless it is to return home. We are waiting for the other shoe to fall.” “Oh Jeff, we are praying that cool heads will prevail, and that the enemy doesn’t decide to escalate the rhetoric with his threats. The world is holding its breath.” As they were saying their goodbyes, Consuelo could hear the alert horn sounding over the phone. Jeff quickly said, “Goodbye, honey. Love you Gotta go.” And the line went dead. Consuelo sat in stone silence praying for his safety and for all the other pilots and military personnel who were scrambling to their duty stations and airplanes because of impending danger. She prayed silently that it was a false alarm and not a real and present danger to America or our allies.

Germany in 1930 is in a state of chaos. The terms of the Treaty of Versailles force Germany to pay reparations that are bleeding the country dry. The political climate is ripe for a revolution. The people feel a mixture of hatred, hopelessness and despondency. ADOLPH HITLER is about to step onto the world stage to lead the country out of the oppressive situation. HAROLD ANDERSON and his wife MARY, who is seven months pregnant with what she believes is one child, arrive in Bremerhaven, Germany from the United States during that bleak year. . Unknowingly, the Andersons are thrust into a political cauldron, which will affect their lives forever. Mary’s labor pains start unexpectedly. One twin son is born as Mary faints from pain and exhaustion. Another identical twin son is delivered by the German doctor, using caesarean surgery, while Mary is still unconscious. Unknown to the parents, he is taken immediately to a German specialist, EMIL VON HOFFEN, who saves his life but plans to secretly separate him from his twin brother and American parents. Harold and Mary are never made aware of their second child, and they return to the United States. The second twin is adopted by Doctor von Hoffen, who plans to use him, along with other sets of twins, in experiments to develop the perfect Aryan German. Eric von Hoffen, the German twin is raised as a Nazi youth. At age fifteen Eric is honored by Hitler personally. He becomes part of the elite guard force at the Fuherbunker in Berlin near the final end of the ‘Third Reich’. Eric actually witnesses the burial and burning of the corpses of Adolph Hitler and EVA BRAUN. Meanwhile in the United States, Harold Jr., while in college, rescues a girl, DONNA COX, from the influence of the worst of the night world, prostitution. The brown-haired beauty and Harold fall in love and marry following his graduation from the University. . . . Their idyllic life is interrupted when Harold Jr. is drafted into the military in early 1953, during the Korean War. He is shipped to West Germany where he discovers the existence and identity of his twin brother and the intrigue that led to the separation of the twins at their birth. It is now 1988. Harold Anderson Jr. is voted president-elect of the United States. Eric plots the kidnapping of his brother and is successful in usurping the presidency. The deception fails later when Harold is rescued and confronts his brother in the oval office of the White House. All the indoctrination and brainwashing by the Nazis during his youth could not blot the love von Hoffen held secretly for his brother all those years. He perhaps did not realize it himself as he made the instantaneous decision to leap in front of a bullet meant for his brother. In a climactic scene near the end, the president holds his dying brother in his arms as life ebbs from him. “As Abel would have forgiven Cain, I forgive my brother. He was a casualty of a ruthless society and belief. Let’s hope he truly is, the last Nazi.”
