  • God isn’t worth the effort
    12 October 2016 @ 7:39 am
    Training to be a priest is, it seems, quite an intense and consuming process. I expected this before I began, and I wasn’t wrong: there’s a new sense of responsibility, of seriousness. I’m meant to be someone who is in touch with God; someone who is living each day in relation to God. There’s less room for backsliding, for apathy, for distractions – ‘I don’t much feel like being holy today… shall I take a day off?’ So I’m putting in the effort.

    • Too late? | Connecting with Culture
      12 May 2017 @ 12:00 pm
      ‘If you’re listening… you’re too late’. That’s the tagline for the new hit Netflix show 13 Reasons Why. Recently renewed for a second season, the programme has provoked intense online discussion about its portrayal of suicide, sexual assault, and contemporary teenage life. It tells the story of 17-year-old Hannah Baker, who commits suicide. Her suicide ‘note’ is 13 cassette tapes telling the story of her life – an [Read More]

    • Election fever
      7 May 2017 @ 11:27 am
      Well, it’s probably pushing it a bit to describe the current same-old-same-old game as feverish. The bandying around of numbers remains as tedious and pointless as ever – as we learned from the EU Referendum last June, nothing promised will matter for one second past the result being announced. It is this sort of sense that sparked the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to publish a pastoral letter to the Church of England yesterday, rejecting both apathy and cynicism, and encouraging Christians in particular to be responsible citizens and vote. Many of us are experts at [Read More]
