  • Back to work? Give it to God.
    2 January 2019 @ 3:12 pm
    The nation is slowly crawling its way back to work after christmas. The tinsel is starting to look slightly out of place, the presents losing their joy at every use, carols have gone off the radio, and even from our shops. However it is with a sometimes heavy heart we start the commute again, what was a long crescendo at the end of the old year is now a very long year ahead. My calendar seemed to rejoice in reminding me that three hundred and fifty nine days remain in 2019. Paired with the reality of work that seems like a long slog ahead. Christmas for chris [Read More]

  • Artlyst - Bill Viola And The Art Of Contemplation
    13 January 2019 @ 9:01 pm
    In my latest feature article for Artlyst I explore the extent to which Bill Viola’s works, which can be seen at the Royal Academy from 26 January alongside drawings by Michelangelo, reveal the essentially contemplative nature of art and of the viewing of art.  [Read More]

Musings on Mystery
  • Imagination and Wonder
    14 January 2019 @ 5:36 am
    A reflection for the epistle (weekly newsletter) of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford (available here). Sunday 6th January 2019. One of my favourite things about Epiphany is its appeal to the imagination. The journey of the Magi to see the infant Christ is an evocative narrative, full of suspense and drama – yet condensed into just twelve verses of Matthew’s gospel. In part, it is the brevity of the n [Read More]

  • On Business, Scrooge & Changing the World
    18 December 2018 @ 2:56 pm
    CTC is one of the Founder Investors in Clean for Good – an ethical cleaning company founded by three Christian organisations. Tim Thorlby is the Managing Director of Clean for Good and Development Director of CTC, and reflects on his work in this seasonal blog… The main character in Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ is a local business man, Ebenezer Scrooge. Dickens paints him as a greedy, miserly character – a grotesque caricature that has survived in popular culture for well over a century. At the heart of the story is the twist that Scrooge (and people like him) can [Read More]

    • Going back a different way: being Christian in a populist world
      6 January 2019 @ 8:38 pm
      This is the basic text of a lecture at Bradford Cathedral today at the launch of the centenary year. It is quite long. Bradford Cathedral is 100 years old in 2019. That is, this building has been a cathedral since 1919, but the building has been here for many centuries before that. It is living evidence of Christian worship, service and faithfulness through times of peace and conflict, change and challenge, struggle and joy. It was designated a cathedral within just one year of the end of the so-called “War to end all wars”. European and wider global manhood had been cut t [Read More]
