The Autumn 2016 edition of Crossway
Posted by Lee Gatiss, 30 Sep 2016
The Autumn issue of Crossway is now out!
We lead the Autumn issue of 2016 with a report by Ian Somasundram on the recent Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference (JAEC) ‘Reach, Build, Send’, which looked at a biblical pattern for parish ministry.
Kirsty Birkett looks at building resilience in ministry and why stress might be good for us. Paul Williams helps us to see the priority of sending out workers into the harvest field, whilst Glen Scrivener asks how we should reach out to a lost world.
Martin Davie examines a recent proposal for affirming same-sex relationships in the Church of England in the light of an ancient principle of church life, and Rod Thomas, Bishop of Maidstone, talks us through the why and how of passing a resolution under the House of Bishops’ Declaration on the Ministry of Bishops and Priests.
Word on Wednesday: Peter Ould on Ministry in a Sexual Minefield
Posted by Sophia Akouo, 28 Sep 2016
Peter Ould's workshop on the history of the sexuality debate in the Church of England, and how to engage in the debate, from the recent Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference.
The issue of sexuality has been in the news, and especially the Church news, almost constantly for the last few years. How did we get to the current situation, particularly in the Church of England? And how can we address the issues that are being thrown up by this ongoing debate?
At the Junior Anglican Evangelical Conference (JAEC) earlier this month, well-known blogger Peter Ould led workshops on this issue. The audio here is therefore a great way to catch up on the subject and think about it theologically in a stimulating and helpful way. Highly recommended!

Lee on the Lectionary: Proper 22 (Year C)
Posted by Lee Gatiss, 28 Sep 2016
Lee Gatiss expounds the Lectionary Bible readings for the week known as Proper 22 (Year C), which are Lamentations 1:1-6, 2 Timothy 1:1-14, and Luke 17:5-10.
Luke 17 is about faith and serving God. 2 Timothy 1 demands faith and loyalty to the gospel. Lamentations 1 reveals what happens when faith, service, and loyalty disappear.
