  • Moving on
    on Apr 7, 2013
    After eight years, and more than a quarter of a million visits, I have shifted the blog to here. I'd be most grateful if you could update all your settings and feeds etc. This site will stay up for practical and historical reasons, but comments have...
  • Sit Down
    on Mar 15, 2013
    I'll sing myself to sleep A song from the darkest hour Secrets I can't keep Inside of the day Swing from high to deep Extremes of sweet and sour Hope that God exists I hope I pray Drawn by the undertow My life is out of control I believe th...

    on Feb 1, 2013 in TBLA
    This is just a link to Andrew Brown's latest article, as he - as so often - 'gets it': "If they were prepared to argue in favour of properly recognised, blessed and celebrated civil partnerships, there would be a much stronger case for keeping tradit...
  • Is there a stable place to rest at the end of the progressive path?
    on Jan 25, 2013 in church theology TBLA
