Five years ago the Diocese of Exeter submitted plans to construct six small-scale wind turbines on its land in three different parishes in north Devon. 

These were part of an overall strategy for the Church of England in Devon to reduce its Greenhouse Gas carbon emissions.  In the event the planning applications were withdrawn amidst an ambience of acrimony and unpleasantness.

We are living at a crossroads when an emphasis on the common wealth or common good is being replaced by an uncertain and dubious individualism.

I have spent the last 35 years of my life and ministry struggling against ‘social evils’ and the forces of reaction. I have collectively engaged in activities promoting greater compassion and equality, peaceful resolution of conflict, justice and togetherness. With others, I have actively campaigned against lack of purpose, homelessness, ecological destruction, xenophobia, social exclusion and so on.

Who do we think we are?

Probably one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves is‘who we think we really are’. Our self-identity is an issue that runs through human history and is found in the works of poets, artists, theologians and psychologists – to name but a few.

Who we believe we are is of course influenced by people around us – the names they use to describe us, how others relate to us, and the familiar, social, tribal and faith groups we belong to.

Are we living in an era of darkness or light?

The journalist Jeremy Seabrook once researched how people felt about social change in their life time. ‘Had life generally improved or worsened during their lives’, he asked. His conclusion was that people felt things had got better but people had got worse!

Looking back over history we now talk about the ‘Dark Ages’, ‘Middle Ages’, ‘Reformation’, Time of Enlightenment?  So how will future generations view and label our own era?

Sadly, one candidate could be ‘An Age of Loss’.

A watch isn’t just a strap-on device for keeping track of time. For men, it’s a fashion accessory just as much as a woman’s handbag. A suit, after all, just isn’t complete without a matching wristwatch. With this in mind, though, you don’t want to strap on any old Rolex and assume it’s fashionable just because it’s all bling-bling. Here are the trends that men should consider before updating their collection of expensive watches.

In recent years politicians and decision makers around the world have been drawn to appealing to the human emotions of fear and hatred for their backing and support. It is clear that motivations such as ‘tribalism’ (expressed in prejudicial racism, sexism, nationalism, etc.) and ‘desire’ (culminating in global consumerism) have been woven into political discourse in ways maybe not so generally seen since the 1920s.

Christmas - choices of consumerism or compassion?

Maybe Christmas in today’s world really highlights our personal and social choices and priorities, especially when it comes to human well-being and fulfilment.

Our 24/7 excessively commercial world screams at us without respite through constant images and messages, and especially at this time of the year:

You will find happiness in the (oil-derived) plastic glitter and glitz!

Only buy more, eat more and drink more, and your festive holiday will satisfy your every need!

Re-thinking our Society

Maybe it’s because of the Guy Fawkes season, but I sense this time of year is one of compelling challenge and radical change – a chance to talk of reforming the structures we have created; a time (kairos) to believe differently….

Poppy Day: A letter from Devon County Council Chairman

The Royal British Legion Poppy Day is on 13th November.

We all know how much and how many depend on The Royal British Legion and a successful Poppy Day Appeal.  The need for help is still as great as ever and we need to show our support for all members of the Armed Forces, retired members and their families.

Devon has always given generously.  I am confident this year we will all “wear our Poppy with pride” – and with thankfulness.
