  • domestic-abuse-part2 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 […]

    domestic-abuse-part1 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 […]

  • microphone 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 […]

    masculine 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 […]

  • domestic-abuse 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 […]

    gift Don’t stop there..  Keep on going!!

    May 2016

    Birthdays are significant milestones… loved by some, dreaded by others!  The church also celebrates its birthday at Pentecost.  It’s a bit of a movable feast, following on 50 days after Easter Sunday but it marks the ‘official’ birth of the church.  Acts 2: 1- 4: When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one […]

  • what-next What next?

    April 2016

    Lent courses..  shelved.  Hot cross buns.. eaten.  Sunrise services.. celebrated.  Easter egg hunts.. over.   Fasting to feasting.. enjoyed. The highs and lows of journeying through Holy Week were memorable, topped by surround-sound messages echoing the themes of life from death, hope from despair, light from darkness, joy from sadness.  Resurrection-magnified sermons inspired and challenged.. […]

    who-do-you-say-i-am Who do you say I am? Matthew 16:15

    March 2016

    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 […]
