Lent Reflection: Even the Sparrow

Stephanie Heald on 18th February 2020

A Way of Life That Works

Jill Weber on 14th January 2020

Daniel sits on the commuter train to London, he balances his laptop on his knees, scrolls through his schedule and the 50 emails that have come in since yesterday, and sighs.

Grant Smith at Blackwells

on 6th August 2019

We look at the world and there are so many problems and we think we can’t do anything. I wrote the book because that’s wrong. We can do something. On Thursday 18th July, we had our Scottish launch of Grant Smith’s The Accidental Social Entrepreneur at Blackwells Edinburgh. It was a brilliant evening, following on […]

Campus Lights Review

Peter Grier on 29th July 2019

This review was originally posted on the Al-Jabr blog.  One of the things I love about travel, is the stories one hears from people from all sorts of backgrounds.

What I Like About ‘Simply Pray’

Jill Weber on 16th January 2019

I don’t like book reviews that assess and evaluate.  I’m not well read or intelligent enough to cast judgement on other authors.  Plus, I always assume when I read a book that there will be things that I agree with, and things I don’t.  And I learn just as much from my moments of resistance […]

What I’ve learned about relationships

Mark Greene on 3rd July 2018

Mark Greene, author of Probably the Best Idea in the World, reflects on 7 things he has learned about relationships. 1. I’m not nearly as good at them as I used to think I was. And I’m not being self-deprecating. Ask my children. Ask my friends. Don’t ask my co-workers. 2. Love is the key […]
