Stepping forward to Jesus in the Confessional: a perfectly Anglican practice
There is a role reversal in today's gospel. A leper, outcast from society, approaches Jesus who freely goes out among the people. Jesus heals him, and sends him to the priest to be readmitted into the community, but as the former leper proclaims with joy hi...

Revolutionary values
My first reaction to last week's murders was one of anger against Islam and solidarity with Charlie Hebdo. When I looked at some of the past front covers of the magazine, though, my sympathies began to shift. You might like to look at some of them here and ...

Epiphany without the Wise Men

The God who hates nothing He has made
"Almighty
and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made..." In

Wednesday was abolished in 1548, albeit without the consent of
