Most Christians agree that abuse  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, 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 […]
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 […]

Resurrection-magnified sermons inspired and challenged.. […]
The seventh and final question we are exploring in this series based on my next book, is put to Jesus’ closest companions, by Jesus himself, ‘Who do you say I am?’ Peter responds, ‘You are the Christ, Son of the living God’, to which Jesus announces, ‘God bless you, Simon, son of Jonah! You didn’t […]
God asks Ezekiel a leading question, ‘…can these bones live?’ And as Ezekiel surveys a valley of dried out bones, the obvious response is, ‘Lord, is this a trick question?’ For the natural answer was surely ‘No!’ However, Ezekiel’s reply, ‘Sovereign Lord, you alone know.’, is telling, for it suggests, that something in his situation required […]
