    The Rector Writes.... March 2020
    All sorts of people that I speak to seem confused about what a Christian is. Now, that might not matter too much, if nothing else depended on it. But when it comes to whether or not I really am a Christian, well the stakes could hardly be higher. To borrow Bill Shankly’s words, “it’s not a matter of life and death, it’s far more important than that.” So, what does Jesus say about this? Read More

    The Rector Writes.... February 2020
    There are few emotions more crippling than feeling guilty. It can turn toxic and damage our relationships leaving us feeling restless and defensive (and thus prone to cause yet more harm, leading to more guilt, and so on in a downward spiral). Many of us know something of its power. Whether it is the words that we wish we could take back; the opportunities missed to spend time with someone; the hurt caused because we did not think of someone else’s perspective – it can haunt us.

    The Rector Writes - January 2020
    So, 2020 is upon us. The first fifth of the twenty-first century is past (which hardly seems possible). Markers like that can helpfully prompt one to look back.

And yet those challenges do not tell the whole story... Read More

    The Rector Writes - November 2019
    Can you believe that it was 30 years ago this month, on 9th November 1989 that the fall of the Berlin Wall began?  Over two million people from East Berlin visited the West in a celebration described as ‘the greatest street party in the history of the world.’ However, we are still living with walls, thinking of those dividing Gaza and Palestine from Israel. It’s a strong human instinct to build walls to separate us from those we view as different and threatening. (Or think of the divisions in our own society between Brexiteers and Remainers). Read More
