Now try saying sorry for your own mistakes, Archbishop…

Sep 15, 2019 by

by Peter Hitchens, Mailonline: I do worry about Archbishop Justin Welby. Does he know anything? Does he understand his own religion? There he lies flat on his face in the Indian city of Amritsar, regretting a massacre he didn’t carry out 100 years ago. It was pretty thoroughly condemned at the time, and its culprit was forced to resign. Christianity is about recognising your own faults, Archbishop. Get some practice. Explicitly and fully apologise for your Church’s decision to...

Living wisely in uncertain times

Sep 10, 2019 by

by Philip Powell, Jubilee Centre: A friend of mine recently commented while discussing Brexit that we are living through one of the most tumultuous and uncertain periods in British history.

The temptation facing us is either to push the panic button, adding further confusion to the chaos, or to take flight and escape into denial about...
