The Latest Musings from Muddy Pearl and Friends

None of Us Lives For Himself

Hudson Greig on 25th November 2020

At first glance, you might be justified in assuming that a book combining the stories of an 18th Century German Count and a technically detailed flight over Europe is, at best, appealing to a fairly niche subsection of readers. You might even feel justified in counting yourself out of that group. However, what Phil Anderson […]

Armistice Day 2020: Remembering Stories that Time has Forgotten

Aidan Heald on 11th November 2020

On this Armistice Day, the ceremony of the Centenary of the Burial of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey, London, is playing on my television in the background as I am writing this, and I sit and think of the other anonymous names from which Time has made us move on. As The Archibishop of […]

A Book for Rememberance

Rosemary Hector on 6th November 2020

Two families find themselves in Warsaw at the wrong point in history. Hitler has invaded Poland. Jews are at the receiving end of prejudice, that quickly turns to systematic elimination and horrors beyond imagination. Yet the story of these families and their neighbours and colleagues is told with a deft touch. The narrative keeps us […]

The God Who Sees in the overwhelm

Vicky Allen on 21st October 2020

I got lost this morning. Caught in a trivial domestic maze accidentally constructed from a long list of tasks, a poorly child, the background dull thrum of the endless news cycle whenever I came within earshot of the radio, or glanced at a screen, and a house too busy and messy to allow me to […]

God’s perfect timing, even when publishing in a pandemic

Stephanie Heald on 13th October 2020

Three years ago, Anna, Muddy Pearl’s then assistant editor and I were sitting at our table on the Publishing Scotland stand at Frankfurt Book Fair, beside an enormous panel depicting our forthcoming book, The Gift of Blessing by Kate Patterson. Anna snapped a photo of the banner to post on social media, and to encourage Kate that […]

What He Would Have Missed

Stacy Sagely on 23rd September 2020

When I read the temptation story of Jesus in our present day I immediately notice something: He was isolated. He was hungry, He was weak, and He was alone. There were no disciples to hear His teachings, no children to hold on the knee, and no lepers to heal. There was no one to see, no one to […]

Charity

Grant Smith on 14th September 2020

In The Accidental Social Entrepreneur I explain how Hand in Hand the Charity began – here’s a snippet… This is how Hand in Hand began in Africa and today supports 3,000 children year on year. Would all of that happened without the jumpers, I can’t actually say, but those hundred odd-shaped jumpers have had a significant […]

Affordable Housing

Grant Smith on 1st September 2020

Making houses available for the poorest in the world is a challenge, not because we can’t build small quality houses, but how we do that commercially, and facilitate the poorest to buy them when they have no formal income. You see, who will lend to a person who doesn’t have a wage slip to prove […]

The view from the editorial desk

Stephanie Heald on 27th August 2020

This week I’ve been editing Kate Patterson’s lovely new book, Living for Eternity, which is all about knowing God, the One who is with us now, and the One we will be with in Eternity. In Chapter 8, I came across a story about George Müller and the orphanage he ran: It is striking that so […]
