Where did the Universe come from? The "Big Bang" or an act of creation by a sentient being located outside of space and time? Surely the "Big Bang" and God's act of creation are different descriptions of the same thing? Which is more "scientific"; the idea of God, or one of Stephen Hawking's explanations ...
... where he wrote, "The Universe is there because it is!". Is that more rational that proposing "God" as an explanation? Which is a better sort of "rational"; the idea that all the richness of human experience is some sort of cosmological accident or that it has a deep and meaningful purpose?
In John's Gospel, the theology of Christ's birth is succinctly put ...
In the beginning the Word (the "Word" = Jesus) already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God. From the very beginning the Word was with God. He came to his own country, but his own people did not receive him. The Word became a human being and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw his glory, the glory which he received as the Father's only Son.
Services 1 and 1A ran northbound via Lake Road and North End whilst the 1C variation operated via Copnor.
Routes in the Wymering and Paulsgrove area were very complicated and quite beyond the scope of a brief blog!
Between The Hard, City Centre and Cosham service 7 is also running every 10 minutes Monday to Saturday daytime giving 12 buses an hour via North End.
So far, so good. But the problems occur in the evenings; as will be explained tomorrow.
