The Hand That Spins the Galaxies Wants You Here. Introducing The Creed

One autumn morning not long ago, I walked to an Oxford cafe, took a window table, and pulled out my journal. I wanted to craft a statement – a creed of sorts – that would pull together what I’d learned while writing my new book The Making of Us. Something that captured what matters most in life. Something to read regularly to guide me forward. After many scribbled phrases and crossings out, I arrived at this: The Creed. Today we release it publicly, crafted into a beautiful video by Tyler Jackson, and ready to download as a print for your wall or smartphone. The hand that spins the galaxies wants you here… More…

What is the Gospel and What’s Your Role in it? Introducing the Awakening Project

Christians talk a lot about ‘the gospel’. We talk about hearing the gospel, believing the gospel, sharing the gospel with others. But what is the gospel?

Eight Lessons to Learn From the Life of Billy Graham (1918-2018)

I can be a real dreamer. There’s always a book, a media project, a life ambition waiting in the wings.

Good News For Behind-The-Scenes People: Your Work is Indispensable

Airport Cleaner

My friend Mick works on the Africa Mercy – a floating hospital ship, helping the poorest people in developing nations. When TV crews visit, they shine the spotlight on the ship’s amazing medical staff. Rarely do they point a camera at Mick’s area of work. It’s – ahem – less than glamorous. But without him, the whole thing would stop… More…
