His prayer for them is deeply moving, calling for their unity with God the... Continue Reading →

Joy and delight

This week's gospel reading reminds us of Jesus' words: "This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."John 15:12 It seems so simple and easy and yet, as those gathered for Zoom Church this morning agreed, it is perhaps not so easy when we think about all of our interactions;...

Revolutionary Respect for Women

There are two situations which I have felt prayerfully close to this week: Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe in court in Iran faced with a second set of charges; and the gender-based violence which has seen so many women speak out this week following the murder of Sarah Everard.
