Apologies

Jul 31

Sorry I haven’t been posting much.  I am on holiday from work at the moment and that means I am a little lackadaisical in my posting.  We have entered that summer period church wise where everyone goes on holiday so there is less influencing my posting.  As well as that I am spending too much

Inspire // Summer Break

Jul 18

I totally forgot to blog the Inspire worship gathering last night.  The theme was “Come to me all who are weary…”.  It was a really good night and it was great to see so many people there.  There seemed to be loads of people I didn’t recognise and that can only be a good thing. Inspire

Retelling the Narrative

Jul 15

Often referred to as the greatest story ever told, the life of Jesus is one that touches millions around the world.  There has been much academic movement to discover ways of making the Gospels heard in a world that is 2000 literary years away from them.  The cultural difference between the time and place of the

Time to move on

Jul 4

All good things must come to an end and Kester has decided to hang up his blog to focus on a new book.  It will be a shame not to have his regular insight on the world we live in.  The synopsis for his new book sounds very interesting so lets look forward to it.

General Synod and Christian Unity

Jul 4

One of the overarching principles of Anglicanism is the desire for Christian unity whilst those around us are drawing battle lines.  Unfortunately the and/both method of Christian unity is starting to fail and headlines are being created over the issue of women’s ministry and the ‘controversial’ vote in synod this week.  This, combined with the
