What is forgiveness? What does it look like? Why is it so important? This is my reflection on what forgiveness is and is not.
This week I have been part of the Church of England’s Shared Conversations on Scripture, Mission and Human Sexuality. They have been set up by the bishops as a way of discussing rather than simply debating.

An open letter to Mr Cameron and my local (Conservative) MP, Heather Wheeler, on what I see as two of the most significant issues facing us.
In what is part of a growing trend of giving focused manifestos for particular groups, UKIP have produced UKIP’s Policies for Christians.
