    My colleague Katherine Hedderly recently made me aware of the connection between St Martin-in-the-Fields and the poet Francis Thompson. Katherine quoted the famous lines from Thompson's 'The Kingdom of God':'... Jacob’s ladderPitched betwixt Heaven and Charing Cross.' [Read More]

Musings on Mystery
  • I’m Still Here
    13 December 2017 @ 9:27 am
    ‘How are you?’ There are times in our lives when, I think, the sheer intensity of our experience make this a very difficult question to answer. ‘How are you?’ usually anticipates a polite reply: ‘I’m fine’, ‘Not too bad’. Most of the time, this response seems adequate. Sometimes, however, the churning of our interior life makes it feel uncomfortably dishonest, even faintly ridiculous: how can I, with sincerity, give a response that feels so clearly at odds with what I’m truly feeling? Surely I should be more honest? Over [Read More]

    • Heart to heart
      20 December 2017 @ 4:04 pm
      Angus Ritchie (Director of CTC and Priest in Charge at St George-in-the-East) blogs on the role of storytelling in community organising – and the way his church is harnessing it this Advent. There has been renewed interest over the last month or so in Heart to Heart – Caitlin Burbridge’s excellent report for CTC on the way churches can harness the potential of storytelling to build relationships, share faith, and act for justice. Advent has been a month of storytelling here at St George-in-the-East. Jess Scott, a member of our lay community, has been bringing the stories [Read More]

    • In Google We Trust? | Connecting with Culture
      18 January 2018 @ 10:59 am
      What do you do when you don’t know something? Simple, Google it. Google is the place we go to solve debates in the pub, ensure we don’t look incompetent at work, and even discover the meaning of life. Alongside this, something else has been happening. Google has become the closest thing the West has had to an all-knowing, all-powerful being since it believed in God. Because everything you do is tracked, recorded, and analysed. Google knows so much. Then there is Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Tinder etc., who know all your entertainment, spending, and romantic [Read More]

          19 January 2018 @ 7:55 am
          This is the script of this morning’s Thought for the Day on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: News, by definition, is unpredictable. But, I guess one thing none of us saw coming even a couple of weeks ago was the prospect of North and South Korea competing in the Winter Olympics under one flag. We seemed to have moved with astonishing speed from mutual nuking to cooperative skiing. So, what’s that all about? I think it’s hard to read. Is this a case of two opponents pushed together by the erratic behaviour of the USA, leading erstwhile enemies to find in each other [Read More]
