Lectio Divina Your Way Through the Bible: a new way of reading.

From day one in the Christian faith, if you're anything like me, you were probably taught about the importance of reading the Bible everyday - of having a plan or a devotional that takes you through the Word and means that you are reading and digesting something from it every day. It's true - it is…

There is a Time.

In an extremely Insta-worthy moment this morning, I sat in the car, overlooking the coast on the north-east of England, watching the sun rise over the ocean that stretched out in front of me. It was a moment of reflection: a second to pause, and to take in the glimpse of a new beginning, peeking over…

Home: an Irrevocable Condition.

"Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you…

Don’t (Just) Tell Me that it’s Going to Be OK: How to Sit with Those that are Hurting.

I had the privilege, early this week, of sitting with a group of people who are all walking through some really difficult things. There was a real sense of burden in the group that night: they were as lovely as ever, but as we chatted I began to see some of the weight that each of…

I really like lists. I have notes saved on my phone of the most important to the most ridiculous lists: films to watch, friends to see, texts to send, songs to listen to. I make a to-do list every day, of the things that I would like to accomplish. I write shopping lists; the only way…

This is For Somebody.

This blog post was written at about 11:30 at night, sat cross-legged on my bedroom floor with a giant cup of tea and an old Matt Redman album on in the background. It's going to be one of those blog posts that is straight out of my journal - but I figured that if you're anything…

Jog On: What God has Taught Me While Running.

It's Saturday morning at the time of writing this, and I am currently laying down as flat as I possibly can on our living room floor, having just come back from a run. I went for my first ever run, using the couch-to-5k app, about two years ago, and I have officially caught the running bug:…
