Monthly Reflections

  • Seize the Day!

    January 2017

    Here we are again… at the turning point of a new year.  We find ourselves looking both ways… back over the past year, and ahead to the future before us.  The prophet Isaiah draws our attention and calls us to action, at this significant moment. “Forget about what’s happened; don’t keep going over old history.  […]

    Are you paying attention?

    December 2016

    Noooooooooooo…oh! What? Really?! Him? You couldn’t predict the result, the final outcome. (No. I’m not referring to the US Presidential election!) But it’s all there, foretold in scripture, The Arrival, the long anticipated Coming. Who would have thought… that God would choose the least likeliest of people, an ordinary teenager, virgin, unmarried, to give birth […]

  • Leading Lights

    November 2016

    Picture the scene…  a 76 year old Sikh grandmother lying in a hospital bed.   She doesn’t speak English and is illiterate.   Through interpretation and translation, she is told that she has to have an emergency operation for a quadruple bypass, or she will die…   Interestingly, she is peaceful and calm when she […]

    Ten Myths About Domestic Abuse You Didn’t Know You Believed: Part 2

    October 2016

    Abuse is the choice of a person, usually a man statistically (but not exclusively), to undermine the personhood of his partner, girlfriend, wife.[1]  This may include putting her down and devaluing her, isolating and controlling her, making her feel she is going mad, scaring and intimidating her, using her children against her, lying to her […]

  • Ten Myths About Domestic Abuse You Didn’t Know You Believed: Part 1

    September 2016

    Most Christians agree that abuse [1] is wrong. Don’t we? Rarely (it does happen) does anyone decree, at least blatantly, that a person should endure abuse by their partner, and if they do, most of us look reasonably horrified at the suggestion. The majority of Christians agree that abuse should not happen. And yet, abuse […]

    Dear Egalitarian Man With A Platform

    August 2016

    Dear Egalitarian Man With A Platform, I value your commitment to women’s full participation in the body of Christ. But your egalitarian values seem hollow when you stand on a platform full of men. They seem hollow when there are no women (or maybe a token woman) speaking beside you. It’s great that you talk […]

  • Masculinities, Femininities, and Socialisation

    July 2016

    A couple of years ago I sat in a café with a man talking about masculinities.  One of the things he said has stuck with me.  “But what do you say to a 6 year old boy who asks, ‘Mummy what does it mean to be a boy?’”  At the time I had a 6 […]

    What’s Domestic Abuse Got To Do With Theology?

    June 2016

    Over the last few years, I’ve met a lot of people who have begun thinking about biblical equality—either as a result of academic study or through their own experience with the disadvantages women face in the church and world. I am so grateful to the many egalitarian theologians who have painstakingly searched through the original […]
