Forgiveness

I was very pleased to hear this story, Pam. Too seldom does such a positive light shine on prisoners. I shudder to think how difficult it must be to get through a prison sentence and come out a better person. I would like to feel compassion, hope and confidence in our prison system, and make no apol...

Tier Two COVID19 Regulations in England

Whatever rules are suggested or demanded, we can choose to set ourselves a higher bar to protect ourselves and others. Firstly, we can avoid making the situation worse by taking risks. We can regard what governments demand as a "minimum standard" because we can do better by being more careful, more ...

The New Reality

....I fear, however, that CO-19 will become part of our epidemiological backdrop and we can expect it to offer an on-going threat for some time. It is not in the nature of effective pathogens to kill off their prey species and fizzle out - why would they? They will "want" to keep us going for as lo...

I will await your outcome with interest. I've attended 2 services so far, Ernest - 20ish congregations - spaced out, masked and j...

One of my favourite chapters of RSB is 72: the reading for today. I think it spells out what our approach to the Co-19 recovery should be.
