- A great blog post over at the Good Book Company, ‘When Depression Makes Church So Hard‘. TLDR: Read this to help understand why people wrestling with depression and other mental illnesses might find church difficult. It resonated with my experiences.
- Andrew Wilson on on ‘are Ethics non-essential?‘ TLDR: What we believe is important, and so is what we do. Recommended read.

- At Premier, a great review and reflection of/on the recent BBC Documentary on Christians Against Poverty.
