Every June we celebrate Pride Month, although each of us will view and celebrate it slightly differently. Some will look forward with a growing excitement or anticipation and others will have done it so many times before, it’s just become a part of life. Many will just see it as a welcome mix of coloursContinue reading “Pride (In The Name Of Love)”
The reason for that image will become clearer at the end of the blog, but for this piece, we need to go back to the beginning! Over the months, I’ve tackled a range of issues. This month I want to go back to something I was struggling with when I first began writing my essayContinue reading “Now, how does that work?”
This month I return to what has become an occasional series. In earlier months we have heard Don and Sarah tell their stories and this month we hear from Jane. She writes: I didn’t really come from a Christian home. I did come from an overcrowded home – five children in a two-up -two-down houseContinue reading “My Story – Jane: “The most unlikely people… Sarah, Lawrence and Esther””
Today I thought I’d take a step back and have a wider view at the very troubled world we live in. Frequently our attention is on our community, our church, our town, and our nation, and how we, personally, are affected by what is happening there. Will I be disturbed by whatever changes are afoot?Continue reading “Our Troubled World”
As I sat down to write this, I was uncertain where I ought to focus my thoughts. Should be something to do with the ongoing terrible news of Russia invading Ukraine – no, by the time this gets published the world might look very different. Besides, there are more than enough other folks writing muchContinue reading ““Safe and secure in the arms of the Lord?””
Way back, before I was born, before any of us were born, back before the Romans, before Moses, before Noah, there was a garden. Whether this garden was literal or figurative doesn’t matter. Within this garden, God created the first people. We are told that these people were made in the image of God, meaningContinue reading “Imago Dei”
I will get back to folk telling their stories and experiences in due course, but in the meantime, we are within touching distance of Christmas Day, and my mind was drawn to that story of the first Christmas and who saw the infant Christ first. Some folk were in the right place at the rightContinue reading “New Birth – An Invitation”
I had hoped to bring you another person’s story this month, but unfortunately there has been a delay. As you will no doubt have found in your own experience, life sometimes gets in the way of plans, and this has been the case this month, so I hope to get back on track next month. Continue reading “Religious Right, HIV/AIDS and Christian Marriage”
Last month I began a series where I ask someone else to tell me their story. I have given little glimpse’s of my own story as part of my essay, which some of you will have read, but I haven’t personally experienced a situation where the Church effectively drives you away — rejecting you for something youContinue reading “My Story – Sarah”
This is the first of a series where I have asked someone else to tell me their story. I have given little glimpse’s of my story as part of my essay, which some of you will have read, but I haven’t personally experienced a situation where the Church drives you away, rejecting you for something you canContinue reading “My Story – Don”
