Your Restlessness Is What Is Right With You

You used to be a real keeny. You prayed for, and attempted to convert, your non-Christian friends. You raised money for mission, perhaps made a short term mission trip. You might even have performed evangelical street theatre. You were clear what you believed, and you were on fire for God! But then… something happened. Something sudden and dramatic. Something slow and gradual and only visible by hindsight.

Faith Stories

Take some time to read this through, quietly, meditatively, slowly - prayerfully on a quiet evening, or early in the morning. Light a candle if you like - that always make me feel spiritual - and hence helps me to concentrate, and to be present in the moment.

This exercise is also available as a pdf attached to this page. Print it out and read through it at leisure, away from your technology!

Philosophy, Story or Stomething Else

This slideshow is part of our journey of trying to understand what it means to be a Christian in our culture. We start here with the Enlightenment, and explore a little bit about its history and continuing significance. It also looks a bit at some of the limitations of the ideas, and concludes with C.S. Lewis's famous idea about Christianity as true myth.

(Almost) Everything I Know About Spirituality I Learned From Epic Movies

Over the weekend I watched The Lone Ranger (yes, I know.) But it got me to thinking - do I want to be a boring, prudish, ineffective religious person, notable mainly for my bad singing, or do I want to be a cool, seeking, spiritual warrior like Johnny Depp? I mean, who wouldn't want to be Johnny Depp?
