  • 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]

  • Columba and my calling.
    8 June 2018 @ 7:25 pm
    A fierce dove racing in a fiercer gale June the 9th is Saint Columba’s day, a saint who has a special place for me, as somehow, he feels bound up in my own journey to Faith. When I was 19, and moving from  atheism, towards a greater spiritual [Read More]

      • Thy Kingdom Come!
        20 May 2018 @ 6:36 pm
        Centre Director Angus Ritchie was one of the speakers  at last night’s “Thy Kingdom Come” celebration in St Paul’s Cathedral. Here is his sermon on “Seeking Justice”. Words from Revelation Chapter 21: “Jesus said to me, ‘It is done!’” The Book of Revelation is written to a community facing persecution – persecution by an Empire whose power seems overwhelming. The message of Revelation is that, despite all external appearances, despite all the logic of the world, the victory is already being won – in fact has already been won, decisively, [Read More]

      • Divided Loyalties | Connecting with Culture
        14 June 2018 @ 3:00 pm
        What if those we love are ‘enemies of the state’? What if the laws of the land contradict the laws of our religion? These are the questions asked by Kamila Shamsie in Home Fire, winner of the 2018 Women’s Prize for Fiction. Home Fire is a rewriting of Sophocles’ Antigone, in which the title character is forbidden to bury her dead brother, who has been declared a traitor by their uncle the king. Shamsie picks up the resulting conflict between loyalties to family, nation, and religion. In modern day Britain, Muslim Aneeka faces a decision whe [Read More]

            19 June 2018 @ 2:36 pm
            When I was going through treatment for breast cancer, I attended a class called "Look Good, Feel Better". The class I attended was held at a local church. After the class was over, the participants were given prayer shawls which had been crocheted and prayed over by some of the women who attended that church. I didn't know it at the time but over the next few months, while battling the most severe of the chemo side-effects, I would tightly wrap [Read More]

            This is the text of this morning’s Presidential Address to the Leeds Diocesan Synod: Thank you for making it through the weather this time! I am sorry we had to cancel the last Synod in March because of snow – a decision not taken lightly, especially as I had some good jokes in my Presidential Address for that meeting on St Patrick’s Day. (Why do people wear shamrocks on St Patrick’s Day? Because genuine rocks are too heavy! (Boom boom!)) Anyway, back to today and the weighty agenda upon which we are asked to deliberate together. In order to open our thinking, l [Read More]
