LOVE them or loathe them, sprouts will still be on the menu in millions of British homes this Christmas.
The other day I read an article in which ten people gave their opinions about sprouts.
It was really interesting to read of the mixed reactions that these people had regarding the poor old sprout.
These days it is amazing how many ways there are cooking and eating sprouts, even down to having it as an ice cream flavour, which I have tried and found it to be very nice.
At Grammar School I hated Latin but I really enjoyed the History and Geography lessons, whilst there were others in my year who preferred these lessons the opposite way round.
Now in my latter years I do not have much use for Latin but I do enjoy a good History or Geography documentary or lecture, as well as my sprouts.
In the Bible we read that Paul the Apostle, when he was called Saul of Tarsus, so hated the Christian churches that he went around putting their followers into prison or even having them executed for their belief.
But having had an encounter with the Risen Lord Jesus Christ, his whole outlook on life changed completely and instead of persecuting Christians he went out of his way to encourage and build them up.
Today, almost two thousand years later, his letters to the Christian Churches, which we find in the New Testament of the Bible, are read and used by the Christian Church worldwide.
