Promoting the Church’s Big Idea – Mike Hill

Dear Friends The arena in which public intellectuals converse is revealing an infectious idea that will be concerning for many church leaders.  Indeed, speaking with some church leaders makes it clear that this idea has started to cross their minds to some extent. The idea is simply this: The Church, which used to be a […]

Life and Leadership – Tracee McAtear – 3

Interview series from 2019 with church leader, Tracee McAtear. What happened next? The headline in the newspaper said  ‘Now is not the time to resign from your job!’ For us it was too late, plus we had an incredible sense of peace and adventure that God was leading us in an Abrahamic kind of way […]

What Now? Looking Beyond the Current Season

Dear Friends Predicting the future is never an exact science. The internet is filled with future predictions stated with conviction that have been shown to be spectacularly nonsensical. One of my favourites is the prediction of H M Warner of Warner Brothers who in 1927 famously said, “who the h*ll wants to hear actors talk?” […]

Looking Beyond the Horizon – Mike Hill

Dear Friends Looking Beyond the Horizon Acts 2:42–end. Some years ago, I was invited to speak at a church in Stockholm. I have no idea how I came to be invited.

When You Get It Wrong – Mike Hill

Dear Friends Dodge the bullets, not the issues! An article I read in the paper this past week caught my attention. It was reflecting on the Government’s handling of the Covid 19 pandemic, and in particular what the general population (whoever they are?) thought of the Government’s performance. I am aware that our readers will take differing […]
