A surprising conversation

A few weeks ago I decided to move to a sim only contract so popped into a local phone network shop to have a conversation about what was on offer. That part of the conversation wasn't at all surprising, simply polite and obvious. The conversation took a surprising turn though once the guy who was... Continue Reading →

Union with Christ

Every so often I come across an idea, a doctrine, a piece of Christian thinking that I may know by name and may even have read a little bit about but have failed to substantially engage with in a meaningful way. Recently in a conversation a friend asked me what I thought about "Union with... Continue Reading →

Prayer – Wisdom from Spurgeon
