Stuck in the Mud: The Audio Book

Dear reader, For the next twelve weeks, I’m doing something new with the content I put out. For the first time since I began this blog and the accompanying podcast, I’m going to be focussing on the podcast. There is, of course, an excellent reason for the shift in focus. The reason is that I’ve…

The slap of disappointment

I’ve gone back and forth all week about whether the world needs my two pennies’ worth about Will Smith’s behaviour at the Oscars. Initially, although the incident shook me a great deal, I decided not to talk about it. However, as the dust has settled, I think I do have an angle that I’ve not…

How to unplug, when it’s time to rest

Let’s face it, unplugging is difficult. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably very aware of the next twenty things that need your attention.

How to let go of outrage in 2022

I don’t know if its been exactly the same for you, but I think the last three years worth of January’s have been a real mixed bag. By the 20th January 2020, we’d had big trouble in Iraq, Harry & Meghan had decided to step back from Royal duties, and Australia had experienced devastating bush…

Santa, God and the never ending cycle of nostalgia.

I’m currently writing a series of blog posts tackling the strange and sometimes ridiculous world of Christian belief. I’m not addressing any of our core beliefs; instead, this series is about things that creep into the sidelines of consciousness. In this case, I’m writing about the idea that God is like Santa for grown-ups. All…

Who does your Christian leader submit to?

This month I’ve been writing a series based on your experiences of bad theology. People who read my blog sent me themes to write about which were linked to things they’ve been told, or negative experiences that hurt them. Today’s blog came from a reader who asked whether it was ok for Christian leaders to…
