Jordan Peterson, Caroline Farrow, Jayne Ozanne and the death of free speech

Rather than the Saturday review I am putting up this article which has just been published on Premier Christianity.  I am doing this because it is of direct relevance to yesterdays Quantum where all three cases are mentioned and because for me this is an even more important issue than Brexit.   Also by the time you read this I will be in hospital, hopefully recovering … Continue reading Jordan Peterson, Caroline Farrow, Jayne Ozanne and the death of free speech

Christchurch Commentaries

It’s always wise advice, that when a horrific tragedy occurs one should refrain from commenting. Not least because in the midst of an emotive situation we don’t know the full circumstances and more importantly to make room for grief, mourning and respect.   But we live in a 24 hour news cycle society – we live in a world where it seems as though every politician, … Continue reading Christchurch Commentaries

Saturday Review 9 – Some Pastors and Teachers; Leaving Neverland; The Briefing; The Dark Side of the Moon; Ting Saboteur

Books – Some Pastors and Teachers – Sinclair Ferguson – 8/10 This is a long and wonderful book from my colleague, Sinclair.  It is really a collection of essays on subjects which are particularly relevant to those of us who are pastors.  In fact I would regard it as essential for any minister to have.  If yours doesn’t then buy it for him.   Sinclair begins … Continue reading Saturday Review 9 – Some Pastors and Teachers; Leaving Neverland; The Briefing; The Dark Side of the Moon; Ting Saboteur
