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. […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
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 […]

What you’re saying
Mentoring has given me a safe place to say it as it is and ultimately it is helping me realise my God-given potential. It’s definitely worth it!
