It’s Unusually Quiet Round Here!


I’m feeling a little hoarse! Woke up with a very sore throat. Managed to take the service and preach at another church this morning, but my throat’s become increasingly painful as the afternoon progressed. Bob made me a lovely hot drink with honey, lemon and soluble aspirin. Then he suggested I stay home this evening. I hate missing church, but it is a special Praise Event, and I’d find it really hard not to sing my heart out!

I don’t think it is laryngitis, tracheitis, or anything as serious as that. I hope to be back to normal tomorrow – but here’s a picture for you. How good are you on first century rulers?

philip tetrarch

This is Philip, otherwise known as Herod Philip II, who married his niece Salome [yes, that one]

He gets mentioned in the Bible, in Luke 3 – and I am sure he must have suffered from some sort of painfully sore throats] too, because there he is given the fabulous title

The Tetrarch of Trachonitis!
