In the August/September 2012 issue of Free:
WORTH MORE THAN GOLD: After years of planning and hype, the 2012 Olympic Games are upon us! What are you hoping for? New World and Olympic records? The triumph of the underdog? Free hears from 2K Plus, a media organisation with a difference – for yes, it’ll be covering the Games, but its focus will all be on athletes who have spent years training for these few weeks, but who have something much more important in their lives …
We go ON TOUR – WITH DREW HOLCOMB AND THE NEIGHBORS and meet American singer-songwriter DREW HOLCOMB, who attended St Columba’s Free Church when studying in Scotland some years ago. VICKIE ROSS catches up with him to hear all about his life on the road with his band.
YOUR CALL: Decision, decisions, decisions … You’re playing football, you find yourself 40 yards out and the keeper is off his line, so what should you do? Shoot – or pass the ball? Football is all about choices – a bit like life, really - but some choices are more important than others. Free challenges you to think about the most important decision you’ll ever make.
SING! SING! SING! Songs from the Past That Last: This year, Queen Elizabeth II celebrated 60 years on the throne – a long time for anyone to do a ‘job’! In our series on singing the Psalms, HOWARD STONE looks at Psalm 110, which explains that Jesus is the King of the universe – for all time!
LIVING IN … LAHORE! S.K. lived near Lahore in Pakistan, until he and members of his family moved to the United Kingdom when they faced persecution for their Christian faith. Free speaks to him about life in Pakistan’s second largest city …
Elsewhere in the magazine, the East Kilbride YF enjoy some CABIN FEVER; DAYSPRING MACLEOD completes her series on prayer Don’t Think It! Pray It!; SPAGHETTI BLOG columnist, ML STONE, sorts her socks; we meet the Lyle Orr Bible Class winner, and COLIN ROSS goes into training in COOL RAMBLINGS.
