  • ‘Love Me Like You Do’ – Reflections on a Retreat
    13 August 2018 @ 8:20 am
    For the last few years, I have been in the habit of going on ‘retreat’ at least once a year. Usually this is for a period of 5-7 days, spent in a monastery or retreat house. This year, it involved a week at the Community of the Resurrection: an Anglican religious community in Mirfield, West Yorkshire. Each year, there are usually some inquisitive remarks from non-churchgoing friends and family: ‘That’s a strange choice of holiday’; ‘What exactly will you be doing?’; ‘How did you fill the time?’. Even in parishes and churc [Read More]

      • ‘Come into the land I will show you’… A new course for lay leaders
        25 July 2018 @ 7:00 am
        A new, year-long evening course – coordinated by Ana Ferreira – for lay leaders has begun as part of the Urban Leadership School. The first term had thirteen participants from St George-in-the-East, Shadwell, St Mary’s, Walthamstow and St Stephen’s, Manor Park. Dunstan Rodrigues describes and reflects on what happened. ‘Leave your country, your family and your father’s house, and come into the land I will show you…” (Genesis 12:1) With intrigued, nervous and curious expressions, thirteen lay leaders from Shadwell, Walthamstow and Manor Park listened to these words uttered b [Read More]

      • A Certain Uncertainty | Connecting with Culture
        20 September 2018 @ 5:45 pm
        I’m not sure I breathed for the first 20 minutes of episode one. It’s re-instated ‘appointment television’, been the subject of office gossip for weeks, and has set the internet alight with conspiracy theories. Warning: This piece contains spoilers for BB1’s ‘Bodyguard’ I’m talking, of course, about Bodyguard, the finale of which will be shown on BBC1 on Sunday night. When you strip back the political meddling, the sexual tension, and the ethical conundrums, however, Bodyguard is essentially a ‘whodunnit’, with all the twis [Read More]

          • Zimbabwe elections
            2 August 2018 @ 6:52 am
            This is the script of this morning’s Thought for the Day on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme: Of the thousands of photos in my phone one I return to time and time again is of a single rose planted alone in dry soil on a parched farm in Zimbabwe. I was walking with a group from farm to farm back in 2007 – somewhere near Gweru in the Midlands Province – and listening to stories of political oppression, fear, suspicion and hope. There was no water in town (the pumps had all broken), you couldn’t get fuel, and inflation was then at only 10,000%. [Read More]
