One of the most famous British ships of the twentieth century was HMS Renown. Completed in 1916 the Renown saw service during both world wars. This vessel and her sister ship, Repulse, were ships which sacrificed armor for speed. Consequently, they were both rather vulnerable, particularly to air attack. A timely refit in 1940 provided the Renown with armor adequate to the task for carrier escort duty and she survived, while Japanese aircraft off the coast of Malaya sank Repulse in December 1941.

Hello dear children,
I am so glad to see you this morning. Know why? It's a time for worship. And more than that, I get to tell you good news. The good news from John's gospel today, is about a very special friend who is here with us today.
But first, how many of you have friends? (children respond)
Jenny was having fun. Her friend Martha had brought a graphical calculator into school. Martha had borrowed the calculator from her older brother, who used it for his advanced maths. He'd been off school for a week, so Martha had figured he wouldn't need his calculator for a while. She and Jenny had soon discovered a great bowling game hidden in the depths of the calculator, and Jenny, to her excitement had just reached level three.
