Hope in the face of death

24 June 2020We are only just seeing the beginning of this. I believe that we haven’t recognised the heavy burdens placed on healthcare staff during this time, and there will be many challenging conversations over the coming years as we fully process this season. My role as a spiritual care coordinator and the kind of work that we do at Marie Curie Hospice in Penarth, Wales, is by nature very much a ministry of presence, which in this current season of social distancing has been particularly difficult to…

9 June 2020As the weeks have progressed throughout lockdown, many of us have experienced every possible range of emotion.

T'is the season to be...

20 December 2019Stress over the many social engagements, large family get-togethers which trigger debate and disconnection, sitting alone at home, or grieving the loss of a loved one – these struggles are pertinent throughout the year, but the messaging around Christmas as a joy-filled and family-oriented season can make this a particularly painful and isolating time. Christians are uniquely placed, equipped and called to speak hope into this season. In a secular context, if Christmas could be condensed into…

Scottish Public Leader: Year 4, weekend 1

21 November 2019A diverse group of people in their twenties and thirties gathered together over 24 hours to learn and grow in their role as public leaders in their area of work. It was a great opportunity to get to know new people who are passionate for Christ, and who are placed in a wide variety of professions: lawyers, medics, teachers, entrepreneurs and architects, to name but a few were represented at this weekend. The knowledge and experience shared added flavour and quality of discussion, conversation…
