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?”

“Safe and secure in the arms of the Lord?”

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?””

New Birth – An Invitation

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”

My Story – Sarah

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”

My Story – Don

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”

Ch.9. – The “Clobber” passages – Genesis and Leviticus.

As promised, we now turn our attention to the passages commonly used to keep the knee on the neck of the LGBTQ+ community.  They have been used to suppress the community for the last fifty/sixty years, or so, and tend to get referred to as the “Clobber passages”, because Christians have used them in aContinue reading “Ch.9. – The “Clobber” passages – Genesis and Leviticus.”

Ch.5. – Transgender/Transsexual Issues and Intersex

This post probably covers the subject that will cause folks the most ire and has been the most difficult to write – and how do you find an image that doesn’t cause upset?!  There are so many rabbit-holes to fall down, and every likelihood I can offend every reader with something I say! People seemContinue reading “Ch.5. – Transgender/Transsexual Issues and Intersex”
