Our resident film buff Grace shares this week's recommendation... 

‘Now, if you wish you could have been normal... I can promise you I do not. The world is an infinitely better place precisely because you weren't.’

The Imitation Game came out on DVD on the 9th March. It stars my favourite actor EVER Benedict Cumberbatch, aka Sherlock, and the beautiful Kiera Knightley, well known for her role as Elizabeth Swann in Pirates of the Caribbean.

Thank God that He made us all differently. Some of us prefer Pepsi to Coke. Some of us prefer Strictly Come Dancing to X Factor. And some of us prefer Cadburys to Galaxy. So whether you’re into Ray Steadman Allen or Ray Charles, don’t stress about it. Embrace the individuality God has made you with and enjoy the creativity He has given us as humans in all its different forms.

We’ve reached that time of year when the summer holidays are fast approaching and thoughts are starting to focus on all things new including a new school year!

Moving to secondary school can be both exciting and scary. It’s the start of a brand new journey; new friends to make, new subjects to learn, new opportunities and experiences. Maybe you can’t wait to get there, or maybe you are feeling a bit sad and nervous about the ‘big move’.

I always think there is something really amazing about an African group singing. So when I saw a video of the Ghana football team singing and worshiping before a huge African nations match against Egypt, you can imagine my excitement.  And this wasn’t a one off event.  As I searched for more videos, there are loads of videos of the team celebrating and worshiping after qualifying for the World Cup and even when arriving at an airport.

‘I belong to Jesus’. Ok ok……I know, sadly, Kaka has not made it into this year’s Brazil squad for the World Cup BUT I couldn’t resist including one of my all-time footballing hero’s in this series. When you think of the way Kaka plays the game certain words will always spring to mind, effortless, graceful, gliding  to name but a few. But did you know that due to a swimming accident in which he broke his neck, Kaka may never have graced the footballing world at all. Thankfully Kaka made a miraculous recovery which was to cement his faith in Jesus forever.

After achieving the accolade of being the highest English goal scorer (21 goals) this year in the Premiership, Daniel Sturridge has a lot riding on his shoulders this summer after an incredible first season at Liverpool. Liverpool’s number 15 will link up with his England strike partner Wayne Rooney where together they will terrorise England’s opponents at this year’s World Cup…hopefully.

So it’s VERY nearly here! On 12 June Brazil as host nation will walk out with Croatia to play the opening game with the world watching. I’m not sure if this is just me, but I am as excited now as I was when I experienced my first World Cup, USA 94.

As is currently being highlighted in the news, Britain is becoming more and more multi-cultural, in many places a beautiful kaleidoscope of diversity. At school or college, there’s no doubt that through your life you will have come into contact with people of different cultures and different beliefs, especially if you live near some of the big towns and cities. The media in this country often encourages an “us and them” mentality, especially with topics like immigration, wearing the veil in public places and religious conflict in the news.
