silver linings playbook | my movie review

April 18, 2013


There are comments about Silver Linings Playbook stating that it’s lovely to see a genuine portrayal of people with mental illness, that doesn’t stigmatise them.

salt of the earth | what does that mean?

January 29, 2013


I recently tweeted an article by J.John about a website that has been set up to promote the idea of “new atheism” and what our response as Christians ought to be towards this form of teaching. Please read it – it’s very challenging. I believe very strongly that we are in an age of lethargic […]

Although i’ve tweeted about the riots i haven’t really known what to blog about with regards to them. the tv has been saturated with programmes analysing the rioters and their actions and the circumstances surrounding them ad infinitum. The only thing that keeps coming into my head is that these people’s lives are so empty. […]
