The second coming of rejesus

27/11/08 | Posted by Bruce | Permalink | (3) Comments

Rejesus went live in 2002 and we've been fortunate that the first design has lasted so long. The Guardian described it as cool and the NGFL said it was the best website they had seen. But with Web3.0 just around the corner we thought we would kill two birds with one stone: redesign the site at the same time as brining it from static pages in good old HTML to dynamic pages using ExpressionEngine as our content management system.

why are we waiting?

26/11/08 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (0) Comments

It is Advent Sunday this Sunday and we get to open the first window on the chocolate advent calender that my daughter has bullied me into getting on Monday 1st December...I can scarcely hold the children back from opening this first window and their impatience to get Christmas going is already starting to wear me out. So, why are we waiting? Why don't we just get on with it? More ...

Doctor Who and Jesus - 2 - The Next Doctor

25/11/08 | Posted by Andrew Wooding | Permalink | (7) Comments

Did you see the tantalising preview of the Doctor Who Christmas Special on Children in Need a few days ago? David Tennant in fine form, a snowy Victorian market, a weird unearthly creature emerging from the shadows, and David Morrissey as the title character of the episode: The Next Doctor. But something seems a bit fishy here. Is that really a sonic screwdriver that his assistant Rosita handed him? Why is Rosita’s name so close to that of Rose? And why do ‘the next Doctor’s’ actions remind me of a famous saying of CS Lewis about Jesus? More ...

Struggling with prayer?

24/11/08 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (4) Comments

I am struggling with prayer at the moment. Autumn is drifting toward winter and I have had couple of nasty colds already, I rush out early in the morning and seem to be tired when I get home after work, I have a lot of work to do and family life is demanding. I don't offer these as excuses but as examples of the things that seem to get in the way of my prayer. I am sure I could find time to fit the discipline in but the truth is many days I haven't...

Better the devil you know…

Leprous gay priest flayed alive in sauna (by demoniac). These are the kind of headlines even the Sunday Sport might hesitate to publish. So it is perhaps surprising to find them effectively summing up the conclusion of a new BBC Drama. Or, more chillingly, setting the tone at the beginning of one. Apparitions, which continues tonight, has managed to cause an unprecedented range of offence – with Catholics, Evangelicals, atheists on the Richard Dawkins Forum, and a host of newspaper reviewers, all stepping up to stone Martin Shaw et al. for sins ranging from dubious theology to ‘a silly plot’. But peel back the first impressions of this Buffy-meets-The-Exorcist thriller and you might find it possessed of something far older and more powerful than any of the critics have yet confronted.

The elevation of George Best

18/11/08 | Posted by Simon Jenkins | Permalink | (3) Comments

George Best has appeared in a new painting showing him ascending into heaven, in the company of two saints, leaving behind a couple of Page Three lovelies on earth. At least one bishop has been wheeled out to declare that the painting might be offensive to Christians... but what do you think? More ...

Road Rage

17/11/08 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (1) Comments

I have spent most of my driving life holding in emotions, trying to be patient, attempting to drive responsibly and avoiding making obscene gestures at my fellow 'travellers of the road'. Some of us are naturally calm and collected drivers, some of us lack discipline and need to be reminded of our vulnerability. That said, I am, so they tell me, a good driver and I have only had one minor prang (last Christmas I dented my mums car by driving very slowly into the back of a BMW - no damage done to the BMW!). But I have been feeling more vulnerable lately and I felt I wanted to move more gently around the world. As a result I have been trying out driving as if I was on my test - doing all the right things, right moves, right speed etc. More ...

Are you scared of theology?

11/11/08 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (1) Comments

Theology has always seemed to me like a specialist 'way of thinking about God', something best left to the professionals. But, I am slowly starting to realise that this might not be true...Whenever we think about God, imagine God, speak about God aren't we 'doing theology'? More ...

Doctor Who and Jesus - 1 - Goodbye to David Tennant

10/11/08 | Posted by Andrew Wooding | Permalink | (2) Comments

Brace yourself for some sad news - although you will have to have been hiding on the Planet Zog not to have heard it already: David Tennant - arguably the most popular Doctor Who ever - has announced he is leaving the role after three seasons and a handful of specials. Yes, after three years of public service, the Tenth Doctor will soon face his death. Fear not, there will be a resurrection and the Doctor will emerge triumphantly from the TARDIS. His followers may not recognise him to start with, but by his actions they will quickly realise that he is still the Doctor ... and all shall be well. More ...

The Cross and the Thoroughly Pissed Off

09/11/08 | Posted by feihero | Permalink | (0) Comments

Today they pretty much crucified Christianity. Buried it. In the place where its founder is supposed to have been crucified, and buried, his followers conspired to betray him all over again. With a Glaswegian Kiss. At the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem, a mass brawl broke out between Greek Orthodox and Armenian monks, who traded kicks and punches at the shrine, until the Israeli Police started making arrests.
