Making that Switch

By PhoebeE on 9 Feb 2024

Today I ended a nine year relationship. It was one I entered into because it was convenient. I didn’t know any better, and then after a while it was comfortable and harder to get out of. This was my relationship with my bank; Barclays. However, today I switched. To an ethical, greener bank with the help of the JustMoney Movement.

Faith on Film

By SCM on 3 Feb 2024

I’ve heard people bemoan that there aren’t more good Christian films, or perhaps that Christian films are just no good at all.

Bonhoeffer and Human Rights

By WilliamG on 16 Jan 2024

When we consider the place of Christian faith and human rights, one person of particular relevance is Dietrich Bonhoeffer. For those of you who don’t know who Bonhoeffer was, he was a pastor and theologian who was part of the Confessing Church in Nazi Germany and who eventually became involved in a conspiracy to assassinate Hitler. You may be asking how Bonhoeffer justified his willingness to partake in such an act of violence, especially if you have read any of his earlier pacifist writings.
