How do we move on from the caricature of women's ministry being about cupcakes and colour-me-beautiful? Caroline Herbert points us to a very helpful new book...

Lee Gatiss expounds the Lectionary Bible readings for the week known as Proper 12 (Year C), which are Hosea 1:2-10, Colossians 2:6-19, and Luke 11:1-13.
