[MEDIA] Social media – is it all bad? With @premierradio

This morning, “The Lords and Commons Family and Child Protection Group is hosting the discussion in parliament on the dangers posed to young people. The meeting has been designed to find solutions for safeguarding children and young people and to challenge the Government and the industry to treat this as a public health crisis.” Yesterday I did a brief pre-record on the discussion (with little time for preparation, so this is coming from head and heart!).

MEDIA: How has the internet changed our lives with @PremierRadio

So, the world’s first website went live 25 years ago, and I was asked to have a chat about how the internet has changed our lives over the past 25 years … I cast out on Facebook (as always), read a few new things – e.g. are we wasting time on the internet, and then enjoyed my chat with Hannah on Premier Radio. Extracts were also featured on the news segments of Big Breakfast and The Worship Hour. Continue Reading →

I’ve been promising to write a blog for Churches Alive Online, ever since they first indicated that they would be launching, and yesterday morning I’d already decided that I would write about the kind of information that those searching for new churches would be looking for – I’d sketched out a bit of it, then decided to go and check out a church … which was having a service elsewhere (so apologies to them for Continue Reading →

#EmptyShelf 2016 #32: Simply Tuesday by @emilypfreeman (Revell, 2015)

I was sent this book for review in the last few months, and I thought it was quite ironic that I decided to pick it up and read it in the final 2-3 days of my annual leave, when I have been careful to turn my email off, taken an overseas break, but then came back to try and do a load of stuff to my new house, then put my paintbrush down and seemed Continue Reading →
