A few things will be changing on this blog over the next three months when I am on sabbatical. I won’t be giving it up but some of the regular series will be stopping. I will be taking a break from Light Engaging Darkness, Quantum of Solas and the St Peters sermons/news. These will all hopefully resume in July. I will be continuing with the … Continue reading ‘A Vicar’s Life’: Is this really a picture of the UK church?
A Christian group has been banned from a Church school because a few parents have complained that Christian teaching is extremist. Premier Christianity asked me to write a response – you can get the original here – (some of the comments afterwards from people who profess to be Christian are quite chilling – not least the two professing Christians arguing that to ask for a … Continue reading Now teaching Christian doctrine at a church school is ‘extremist’. Move over Monty Python.
(The Future is African!) A report of the Church of Scotland and Free Church General Assemblies in Christian Today – A Tale of Two Assemblies Another year, another annual church assembly, another battle and series of headlines about the church and sexuality. Deja vue. At this year’s General Assembly the Church of Scotland ‘crossed a Rubicon’ (as the Principal Clerk pointed out). It voted by 339 … Continue reading A Tale of Two Assemblies
The Interfaith commission on religion and public life makes fascinating reading – I write about it in my latest column in Christian Today – Star Wars Report Here is the text: I am director of an organisation called Solas Centre for Public Christianity. Our concern is with the way Christianity is both being privatised and sidelined in contemporary European culture and our mission is to enable … Continue reading A Star Wars take on the Interfaith Report on Religion and Public Life in Britain
This is an article I wrote for Premier which was published yesterday in response to the interfaith commissions report. Obviously it is something that we will return to in Solas as it is our bread and butter! A two-year interfaith commission has come up with a report that is bound to cause a little bit of controversy. The 150-page report actually makes for fascinating reading and … Continue reading The End of Christian Britain?
This months ‘In the Market’ with Janet Parshall…”A small ad to be aired at movie theaters in Britain is causing a firestorm. What is the controversy? And, is Jesus really the only “way” as He said? We go across the sea to Scotland and join David Robertson to find out more!” In the Market with Janet Parshall Continue reading Janet Parshall – In the Market Nov 30th – The Lords Prayer Controversy and the Uniqueness of Christ
This is an old but highly relevant article from Matthew Parris – an atheist, homosexual who gets Christianity much better than some professing Christians! I picked this up from the UK Apologetics FB page…It is an astonishing piece which exposes the flaws in the thinking of the likes of Steve Chalke and all those ‘Christian’ leaders who want us to turn away from (or reinterpret … Continue reading Matthew Parris – An Atheist Homosexual with a Better Understanding of Christianity than many Church leaders!
It is wonderful that this article is published in The Scotsman today. It is my response to Elton John’s claims about Jesus. I am delighted that we are able to testify in the national media that Jesus is alive! Tolle, Lege and pass it on! http://www.scotsman.com/news/jesus-is-alive-with-joy-love-and-compassion-1-3494240 Continue reading Jesus is Alive! Article in The Scotsman
