Monthly Reflections

  • 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 […]

    courage Can these bones live? Ezekiel 37:3

    February 2016

    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 […]

  • where-are-you-going Where have you come from, and where are you going? Genesis 16:7 – 8

    January 2016

    It’s that time of year again! Determined resolutions will be made for the year ahead.. more exercise, more pause times, less T.V., less alcohol! However, within a few days, we will begin to realise how over-optimistic and even how undisciplined we are in keeping to our own plans! Feelings of disappointment and failure begin to […]

    December 2015

    Preparation, expectation, longing…  Hope.  Peace.  Joy.  Love.  These profound sentiments and holy themes guide my reflections and journey through this Advent season. Two thousand years ago a baby was born to a teenager, in a stable.. in difficult circumstances.. the Son of God became flesh, lived amongst us.  Sometime later, the family fled to Egypt, […]

  • Mutuality and emphasising relational dimensions are one of the most important things I feel I offer as a women leader, seeing this being modelled (by the presenters) has been a vital part of the course for me.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • I really appreciated the way in which the equality of men and women together has been emphasised, this is lacking in most women based stuff I’ve looked at or been a part of. Maybe men would benefit from some of the teaching too?

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership

  • Coaching provided a non-judgemental space for me to reflect on our Church vision and strategic objectives. It also had a hugely positive impact on the way I lead and relate to others.

    General Testimonial

  • Excellent presenters… coming from a non-church background it was really enlightening for me to hear bible stories and how they related to leadership – it made me curious to find out more.

    7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership
