Trench warfare, WW1

Surviving the Trenches: Killing Sin Before Sin Kills You – book review

The first day of the Battle of the Somme, in 1916, was the worst day in the history of the British Army. It was meant to be the big offensive that would end the vicious stalemate of trench warfare and win the Allies the war. Overnight the British artillery bombarded the German positions, and in […]

Let’s talk honestly about pornography

Pornography has been with us a very long time. Since people first started scrawling pictures on cave walls, there have been words and images designed to offer an easy physical climax. Now the internet age has made the most explicit content available at the merest click of a button or swipe of a finger. However, […]

Making sense of the war in Ukraine

Words can’t do justice to the horrors of the war in Ukraine. Seeing the carnage and devastation play out in real-time on the news and on social media can’t fail to cause even the stiffest upper lip to quiver.

Forgetfulness – part 1: the return of the King

‘Hiya Josh! Haven’t seen you in a while. How’re you doing?’ said a friendly voice, near at hand. ‘Hello!’ I returned enthusiastically, before turning to give the speaker my full attention to see who it was addressing me. Oh dear… It rang no bells; no names. Yikes, not again! I had not even a faintest […]

Pray, pray, pray!

The word of God says to ‘pray continually’. Our Father in Heaven loves to hear us talk to Him. Our lives should be one long prayer to God, a running conversation with Him.
