Readings: 1st Sunday of Advent

David Bryant suggests an outlook on life that not only brings prayer alive, but makes it seem much less daunting

Inter Faith Week begins on Sunday. Can other faiths teach us to be better Christians? Christopher Collingwood thinks so, and has taken to practising Zen

Readings: 2nd Sunday before Advent

Hester Jones reflects on conflict with a prayer from the days of the Civil War

Readings: Third Sunday before Advent; Remembrance Sunday

Walk in the dark

David Bryant urges courage, not despair
