Lessons from nature...

2007-06-05T12:23:37+01:00

During my first few months of being a new Christian, I was given the really helpful example, or analogy, of the behaviour of Eagles. In the first example I was given it was explained how Eagles taught their young to...



local happenings for local people...

2007-06-04T17:05:07+01:00

One of the most annoying things about living in Oxford is the moment when you tell people you live in the city most assume you're a student (although I do get the opportunity to entertain my inverse snobbery by saying......



Work...

2007-05-18T18:18:11+01:00

Over the past 12 months I have been on my own personal journey to define a Christian Ethic to work, or at least my ethic to work - Mixing my own gifting and skills to best serve the world, the...



So that's why...

2007-04-21T15:59:00+01:00

...I forget all of the information sent by email. For the last few years I have just come to accept that I only partly digest a small proportion of the information people send me by email... this results in me...



The Problem of Evil… (Again)

2007-04-18T15:21:12+01:00

An interesting BBC radio programme (thankfully podcasted) is Start The Week (STW). For those unfamiliar with the format, Andrew Marr gathers four people usually with good and interesting fair to flog (typically books, plays, films etc), each one has a...



Vows

2007-04-15T10:29:09+01:00

Phew.. after a rather packed month I was really quite relieved to arrive at Easter, and in some ways felt really unprepared for taking my vows on Good Saturday. I consoled myself with two thoughts, one - I questioned how...



Been Away...

2007-03-20T16:11:49+00:00

See below a small selection of pictures from recent skiing trip (WARNING: This was four blokes left alone in a chalet for a week)



Our father's hat...

2007-02-25T12:20:03+00:00

Last week Alan Hirsch blogged this entry called 'don't emerge before you get missional'. Matt and I read this within 5 minutes of each other, and I think it's fair to say we were both quite deeply challenged by it....



Blah.. Entrepreneurship

2007-02-14T11:31:39+00:00

OK... I know Jonny's already blogged this but... as further encouragement... If you are at all interested in entrepreneurship and what it means for you or the church then PLEASE, PLEASE sign up for this day. March 31st | The...



Just Jack (and Chewy)

2007-02-13T23:49:31+00:00

So... went to see Just Jack tonight (thanks to Claire for the tickets)... very, very good gig! Half way into the second song I thought "Hold On"... "That's Chewy" And there he was... the brother of one of my closest...



It SNOWING...

2007-02-08T07:51:09+00:00

Wow...!! It's snowing (and settling) in Oxford (almost unheard of)... OK it's about 3 inches deep across most of the UK.. but hey all that matters to me is Oxford. No doubt London will grind to a halt any minute...



Still feudalistic puritans...?

2007-02-08T07:45:00+00:00

I'm reading through a rather brilliant book at the moment - 'The Inner Game of Work' at one point the author, Timothy Gallwey, says this... ... The assumption is that if you're enjoying what your doing it's not work.. ..There...



Bullying...

2007-01-30T15:49:44+00:00

For a few years now, some of my peers have done their best to stop label me a second class citizen, all because I use a PC and not a Mac. Every single small problem I experience with my PC,...



Venus

2007-01-30T00:01:00+00:00

Went to see Venus on Friday night. I can't recommend it enough. Mark Kermode said it was in parts 'morally ambiguous', which is true. But in many ways that was intrinsic to a film which really goes into the guts...

2007-01-27T23:45:00+00:00

The importance of gift and letting go – gift as anti-protectionism In his book 'It's not how good you are, it's how good you want to be.' Paul Arden writes, 'Do not covet your ideas. Give away everything you know,...



Gift in the Marketplace [2]

2007-01-25T23:00:00+00:00

The Gifting Business model - paying it’s way in the world A question I have to start this post is... if the internet was 'closed down' today, would we still revert to the business models of the mid-1990's? I think...



Gift in the Marketplace [1]

2007-01-24T17:15:03+00:00

Gift and non-gift – the use and abuse of gift in the market economy I will come as a surprise to no-one that gifts have been used in commerce as a means of informal bribe, and tool of persuasion, for...



Alternatives..?!

2007-01-21T06:00:00+00:00

Over the past few days I have been reading and rereading Jonny and Kester’s posts on ‘Gift’, and have sat somewhat unquietly through these readings… there are a number of reasons for this which I would like, if you would...



At last...

2007-01-19T11:24:13+00:00

I admit this is an unusual reaction to the current furore surrounding the current 'Celebrity'* occupants of the Big Brother house. The reason for my somewhat disappointing and tainted delight, is that we are beginning to get a serious discussion...
