Men in Pink: The Church of England’s Gay Bishop Decision: Taylor Carey

    One of the joys of the holidays is to wake up mid-way through the Today programme rather than at its opening six bleeps; the headline summary luxuriously accompanied by maternally-provided coffee and the gradual rediscovery of whatever book I fell asleep reading the night before.  Yesterday’s news that the church had lifted the […] Continue reading »

Sandy Hook and the Christian Vocation: Taylor Carey

We turn to God when we are sorely pressed; we pray for help, and ask for peace and bread; we seek release from illness, guilt, and death: all people do, in faith or unbelief.   We turn to God when he is sorely pressed, and find him poor, scorned, without roof and bread, bowed under […] Continue reading »

Lewis’s Narnia with characteristic eloquence, enthusiasm and intellect. The Lion’s World is a must-read for anyone seeking reflections on our own quest to be surprised by the joy of the Christian faith. ‘I can […] Continue reading »

A Pilgrim’s Progress: My Journey of Faith – Taylor Carey

  Our next new regular contributor is Taylor Carey, a relatively new Christian. We have been following each other on Twitter for a while, and he responded to a tweet from Chris Fewings about Lay Anglicana’s search for permanent correspondents. (Let no one doubt the ripple effect of social media!)  I asked him to write […] Continue reading »
