So having written a mammoth post last week on my top reading, watching and learning from last year, I thought it would be worth mentioning some of my writing.
I’ve been very remiss at adding stuff I’ve written to this site, because I tend to think ‘I’ll let it have a good run in its original location first’ then forget to come back to it. (If only WordPress had some kind of scheduling function, so I get them ready to go live at some future date. Nah…it’ll never happen! 😉 )
Anyway, here are some samples of my writing from 2016. They’re the pieces I was most pleased with, not necessarily the pieces that got the most attention or feedback – an entirely subjective list, but at least it has reassured me that I am a writer as well as an editor!
Welcome to My World – Evangelical Alliance Friday Night Theology
On Dairy Milk, hospitality and how we create and curate our own worlds, without even realising it.
On Not Turning Away – LICC Connecting with Culture
Why I kept listening to the traumatic domestic abuse storyline in The Archers.
Well, well, well – ThinkTheology
On an odd little story about Isaac digging wells, and the Philistines filling them in. First in a short series of reflections on a passage I was writing on for Scripture Union.
Christ revealed – Scripture Union Daily Bread/Word Live
On the stunning truth that seeing Jesus isn’t the best way to be saved.
Real Choices, or How To Talk About Abortion Without Mentioning God – ThinkTheology
On some broad principles to consider when discussing abortion, that don’t rely on a belief in God to be compelling.

On why people who live in glass houses should probably buy curtains.
