New blog post... The ordination of women http://bit.ly/1HSGOdf
I’m trying to think through my position on women’s ordination, having tried to avoid the issue for years. Since I came to a living faith in my teens, the evangelical churches I’ve belonged to (pentecostal, presbyterian, independent evangelical, baptist and Anglican) have all (basically) been of the view that women...

New blog post... I'm not a person of faith http://bit.ly/1KbzzNn
There are two types of people: normal people, and everyone else. How you unpack that depends on what you think of as normal. So there are Brits and foreigners. Or Jews and Gentiles. Or (ancient) Greeks and barbarians. Or Muslims and non-Muslims. Or Christians and non-Christians. The important thing to...

New blog post... General election Bible study http://bit.ly/1HgMQWW
I cobbled this Bible study together at the weekend. It is unrefined and untested, but I post it here in case it might be useful. The main inspiration is Votewise 2015 (Guy Brandon), along with an associated talk. The latter used the excellent idea of focussing on one topic per...

The British population has been described as “lazy” and chided for “excessive lie-ins”, in a scathing attack by the Chancellor. “The reason the economy is going so badly is that you lot are just too lazy,” Osborne said. “The Markets are not happy. They demand austerity. And that means less...

New blog post... Why are we so obsessed with gender? http://bit.ly/1JsBY9n
It might not be overstating things to say that we find ourselves at a turning point in Western history. History is moving forwards at a considerable pace, and some people find themselves on the right side, others on the wrong side. And as the past gives way to the future,...

My post from this morning on the Faith in Scholarship blog... http://wp.me/p4ro0J-9Q 
While I was an academic astronomer, I probably spent most of my time not peering through a telescope, but typing away at a computer, wondering why my code didn’t work. Now, computer software wasn’t my area of research, so I didn’t give much attention to it from a Christian perspective. But is there a Christian …

New blog post... Christianity and the Green Party http://bit.ly/1xB3soS
A little flurry of online activity on this topic over the past few days. First, there was Gillan Scott’s post on Archbishop Cranmer, entitled Green Party: Christians welcome, but only if you ignore your faith. His post was based on a narrow focus and anecdotal evidence (which is quite out...

Excellent. I've used Enterprise (Foss Islands Road) a handful of times for short bookings, and found them consistently efficient, helpful and excellent value. As another review says, they can be quite busy (only at peak times though) and they try to sell extra insurance to reduce the excess (which I always decline), but that doesn't bother me. Cars are fine - not more than a couple of years old, Toyota, Vauxhall, Seat, Ford, Peugeot, that kind of thing.

This was by far the best meal of a week in Madrid. There were around 8 of us, including a couple of vegetarians, and very little Spanish language skills between us. After ascertaining that the waiter spoke English, knew what a vegetarian was (and that fish isn't a vegetable), and seemed the kind of person who wanted to give us a good meal, rather than rip us off, we accepted his offer to bring us a selection of dishes of his own choice until we had eaten enough. The combination of food and service made it a wonderfully relaxing evening. We ended up paying around 24 euros each, including plenty of drinks etc. Fully intend to make a return visit on future trips to Madrid.
