  • God’s Own Country: Learning a Language of Grace
    9 March 2018 @ 8:22 am
    A reflection for the Ripon College Cuddesdon Arts Blog. The film ‘God’s Own Country’ is available to view online here.  God’s Own Country (2017) is not, despite the title, an overtly religious film. Set on a struggling farm in the Pennines, it is a captivating story of loneliness turned into intimacy, played out against the backdr [Read More]

    • A weekend of thinking differently
      7 March 2018 @ 1:45 pm
      Laura MacFarlane and Zoe Mathias blog on an exciting weekend coming of vocational discernment which is coming up next month… God is calling each one of us. Yet in our busy world it can be hard to take time to listen. What does it mean to be attentive to God’s call as we think about our future?Two years ago, we (Laura Dunstan and Zoe) spent a month on CTC’s summer internship in East London. Throughout the the four week internship we spent time thinking about what it means to explore vocation in a new and different way. We were struck by the extent to which this approach to vocatio [Read More]

    • A Spring in Our Step? | Connecting with Culture
      15 March 2018 @ 3:09 pm

Something lacking, if you will. As US Senator Bobby Kennedy once said, ‘The gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play… it measures neither our wit nor our courage, neither our wisdom nor our learning… it measures everything in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.’ We need more than GDP and ec [Read More]

        • The facts of the matter?
          20 March 2018 @ 7:51 am
          This is the script of this morning’s Thought for the Day on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: Remember this? “Humpty Dumpty to Alice in ‘Through the Looking Glass: ‘When I use a word,’ he said, in a rather scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean – neither more nor less.’” It’s no wonder Humpty ended up having a great fall. The point of language is to allow for a common comprehension – mutual understanding between different parties. If we all, individually, get to choose what meaning we attribute to particular words, it is not only co [Read More]
