The Hardest Post

It's a Sunday afternoon with the clearest of blue skies, a breeze that rustles through the trees and the sense that this summer will be better than the last. Lockdowns became a catalyst for breakdowns of relationships, the mind, the body and much more. There was so much loss felt in 2020 by so many.… Continue reading The Hardest Post

An interview with David Robertson – The Wee Flea

Ever since I asked David if he wouldn't mind helping me answer an atheist on my blog, I have been fascinated with his writing and engagement with others in the public sphere. From being attacked for his views on social media to being banned on Twitter, David is no stranger of being at the centre… Continue reading An interview with David Robertson – The Wee Flea

An interview with Gavin Calver – story, sin and sharing good news

Tell us a little bit about you and how you came to faith! I grew up in a Christian home, did my best to follow the faith but it didn't quite work out that way.

An interview with Sarah Yardley – Cornwall, Creation Fest and Christianese

Tell us how you came from California to Cornwall! I started coming to the UK in the summer of 2009 and I came over every summer between 2009 and 2014.

Even though the book is called 'Unpopular Culture', I hope that it will become an extremely popular book!

The banner on the bus says…

This blog post has been on my mind for the last few days. I have been contemplating how to convey my thoughts without being controversial. I guess that's the nature of 'religion' in the 21st century Western society that I find myself in. Whether it's the Archbishops causing controversy over a letter sent to clergy… Continue reading The banner on the bus says…

Nabeel Qureshi’s cancer diagnosis – a morning reflection

Sad news seems to have a habit of reaching me in the morning. I think it's coincidence but I can't help but notice the pattern. I remember my mum waking me in the morning to tell me that my Grandad had died. Flicking through Facebook like reading the morning newspaper, I read touching posts and… Continue reading Nabeel Qureshi’s cancer diagnosis – a morning reflection
