Book Bundle Survival Packs

on 18th March 2020

Working from home? Self-isolating? Cancelled holiday or trip? It can be fun to have a lie-in at first, but that can soon wear off, boredom and, worse still, loneliness setting in.

Finding the opportunities in uncertain times

Emily Ackerman on 16th March 2020

Our shower is getting old and eccentric. When I turn it on the water quickly turns hot, then once I get in, it goes cold. On a good day, after a minute or two it heaves a sigh and turns hot again. Otherwise it stays cold. This morning I tried a new strategy. I hopped […]

Lent Reflection: Even the Sparrow

Stephanie Heald on 18th February 2020

It’s funny how you remember where you were when you read a manuscript.

A Way of Life That Works

Jill Weber on 14th January 2020
