The controversy over the Revoice Conference is producing plenty of heat. For me it is a frustrating conversation because of the heightened emotions, quotes that may or may not be taken out of context, a lack of civility and the presence of shibboleths. 1,831 more words

I have a lot of thoughts about this book. Not quite a treatise for friendship, and not quite a personal reflection, it was difficult to know how to read – at times it seemed like a memoir, at times a discursive essay… I appreciate what Wesley Hill is trying to do with this volume: encourage the church to think about how it defines and practises friendship, and consider that there are a number within the church – single, married, widowed, divorced etc – who need friendship that is more meaningful than often we allow our friendships to be. 259 more words
