This why is my third but there may be more than one why in it. Why am I the only person in our church who reads the Methodist Recorder? I know you can't answer that unless you come to my church but it is an interesting question.
While on the topic of the Recorder why is it so boring and old fashioned - I am sure if I were able to get a copy from when I first came into a methodist church in the early 1980's it would look exactly the same. Compared to my local evening newspaper it is very poor, the layout is quite staid and to some degree every page looks the same i.e. 6 columns per page, why is it so expensive £1-10 for 24 pages this week- as I write this I wonder why I have the Recorder each week except to keep up with what is going on.
My local evening paper is just 35p and tonight has 64 pages much better value I think.
