PART ONE: EMBOLDENED WOMEN I thought Emboldened was going to be a battle cry, but it was more like a warm hug. I expected more to be doing more fist-pumping, fewer moments of eyes filled with tears of comfort and gratitude. With part one entitled ‘Emboldened Women’, and part two ‘A Vision for an Emboldened Church’, this book is both a love letter to women in the body of Christ, and a pep talk to male leaders who want to embolden women. I’ll be giving my attention to part one,

Netflix’s Christmas release “A Christmas Prince” has received a lot of attention on listicle and clickbait articles for being possibly the most amazing worst Christmas movie ever (Click here for a good summary). Having viewed this monstrosity of confection twice, I can confidently say that it is almost perfection in its terrible script, ridiculous plot and awkward acting. “A Christmas Prince

NT Wright a New Testament scholar puts it this way:
"Made for spirituality, we wallow in introspection.
Made for joy, we settle for pleasure.
Made for justice, we clamor for vengeance.
Made for relationship, we insist on our own way.
Made for beauty, we are satisfied with sentiment.
But new creation has already begun.
The sun has begun to rise.
Christians are called to leave behind, in the tomb of Jesus Christ, all that belongs to the brokenness and incompleteness
A review of Lisa Sharon Harper’s ‘The Very Good Gospel’ In 2004, as I sat with a young woman who shared with me her story of being abuse by a man she trusted, I remember my burning desire to share the love of God with her. She desperately needed to know the hope I knew for a better future, the feeling I knew of unconditional love. Being a good first year bible college student, and beach mission trained, I knew my gospel tracts. I had even memorised the verses! Yet, it didn’t
