Bristol City Centre Talks – this Thursday

This Thursday the Bishop of Bristol, Mike Hill, will be speaking on ‘Turbulent times – where can we find security?’ at the Llandoger Trow pub in town, in the latest event organised by the guys behind ‘Bristol City Centre Talks’. It looks set to be a great evening of clear gospel presentation in a decidedly un-churchy environment.  Do you know someone who works…

The place where you won at jungle speed (and if you didn’t, it somehow didn’t matter…), where you thought the joys of uni-hoc would continue forever, where embracing the warm welsh waters made you feel more alive than you ever have! Ahh Wales.

Step into the light

A few weeks ago I posted on the problem of porn, and some ways to start addressing the problem if it’s got a hold of you. This is something we need to keep talking about if those struggling are ever going to be able to share their struggle with others. I’m thankful for Christian musicians courageously putting it on the agenda like…
