New Year – A New Hope? Maybe‽

Since we last met the world has moved on.  We are in a new year.  It’s strange, because whether we are in the UK or America, we have both had some horrendous political situations in the last few years.  If you are in the USA, you can write your own political narrative but here inContinue reading “New Year – A New Hope? Maybe‽”

Sifting for Truth amongst the Myths and Legends

Since we are still in the season of Christmas, this month I’ve decided to write about the Nativity (the story about the birth of Jesus).  As I start to write, it is yet to come, but as you read this, it has gone, and your attention has shifted to the New Year!  How quickly ourContinue reading “Sifting for Truth amongst the Myths and Legends”

Let’s try that again!

I need to begin with an apology.  When I wrote my last blog, I rushed it.  Life happened and I ended up with too little time, and the deadline to publish just didn’t give me the time I would have normally wanted to make sure I dotted all the i’s and crossed all the t’sContinue reading “Let’s try that again!”

A Look at History

Why is it that so many people, especially Christians, have such a negative view towards homosexuality?  Actually, it’s not as simple as that because Lesbianism has never been truly illegal in Britain, nor its colonies, whilst there have been many laws against male homosexuality – until quite recently.  Across Europe however, historically there have beenContinue reading “A Look at History”

Where do I find the answers?

This month I have resisted the urge to write anything about the loss of our late Queen because so many have been doing that recently, and with much greater skill.  I also decided against writing about the economic and governmental woes we are facing. Again, I’m not really qualified to comment with authority.  However, thereContinue reading “Where do I find the answers?”

How does the Lambeth Conference affect me?

In my previous Blog Post, I wondered aloud what I should write about this month.  Since my last Blog, apart from a few minor stories, there has only been one hot-button issue to reflect on, from where I’m sitting.  You on the other hand may say, well, what about … this, or … that issue. Continue reading “How does the Lambeth Conference affect me?”

Reflecting on my Pride

(Just like last month, as a bit of fun, look out for the hidden rock/pop song titles!) When I released my last blog, it was mere hours before a Pride March – my first “Pride” March (though not my first march), and since then I’ve been to a second.  So, what were the experiences like? Continue reading “Reflecting on my Pride”

Pride (In The Name Of Love)

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)”

Now, how does that work?

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?”

My Story – Jane: “The most unlikely people… Sarah, Lawrence and Esther”

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””
