As we head towards Car-Free Day this year (Sunday 22 September) perhaps it’s timely to ask a very challenging question. Should Christians, and other people of faith, drive cars? Or to be less controversial, what might our attitudes be to driving that express something of the spiritual and ethical values that are central to religious tradition?

The Power of Negative Thinking

From the beginning we are taught by our parents what NOT to do.  Don’t cross the street without looking.  Don’t go to bed without brushing your teeth.  Don’t talk back.  Don’t get in trouble.  And on and on.

Everything from the choice of seed and the time of planting to the watering regime and the thinning out process went into producing these incredible results.

Look around you.  What do you see?  If you were asked to be a witness at a trial, would you be able to remember details and conditions?
One of the qualities of successful people in all walks of life is keen observation of things about them.  They notice things about people, human nature and the general world around them.  Many of us, unfortunately, go through life with our eyes half closed.

Fantasy Jukebox - 4. Fairport Convention - Who Knows Where The Time Goes

Authored by Matthew Vizard
Posted: Wed, 08/21/2013 - 9:00pm

Imagine a fantasy jukebox that contained all the most influential, innovative, adventurous and just plain great music since the dawn of the recording era. OK, so the likes of iTunes, YouTube and Spotify have made this more of a reality than a fantasy, but setting aside their rather indiscriminating presence, what should it include?

Continuing a series exploring some of the key musical statements of the recording era, Matthew Vizard picks a totemic modern folk-rock standard.
