Thinking Anglicans

opinions before Remembrance Sunday

Giles Fraser writes in this week’s Church Times about Onward faithful eco-warriors.

Last week, Jonathan Bartley had Thoughts on Thought for the Day in the Church Times.

And John Shelby Spong was interviewed in the Church Times by Terence Handley McMath.

Ruth Gledhill wrote in The Times about the lecture given by Jonathan Sacks. See Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks: Islam must separate religion from power.

The Guardian today has an article about the Religious Experience Research Centre by Roger Tagholm.

In The Times Peter Townley writes about Forty years in the wilderness in East Germany.
