We have a responsibility to care for people, that will mean being aware of the dangers and signs of abuse. Here’s a book that will help you start to think through what abuse can look like inContinue reading “Not Forsaken”

Tough Issues, True Hope

Christian ethics is a topic that I’m not sure many Christians read up on much, but it is a topic that every Christian engages with on an almost daily basis. How should Christians respond to abortion, divorce, bioethics, trans-humanism, suicide, etc? These are big issues that every Christian probably has an opinion on, but whereContinue reading “Tough Issues, True Hope”

I can open a parcel and find books on parenting, church life, discipleship, evangelism, Christian identity, and so on. Two topics that I probably haven’t read much on over the years are generosity and sports.Continue reading “Generosity and sports…”

Reading, Accessibility and Discipleship… books and a recent conversation

But social media is also full of Christian discussions and debates. I tend to stay away from them as much as o can because I knowContinue reading “Reading, Accessibility and Discipleship… books and a recent conversation”
