David Shreeve’s last Creation Time 2011 Blog
So, Creation Time 2011 draws to a close. How was it for you? Until the Christian Ecology Link diary of events arrived a few minutes ago I was beginning to think Creation Time might be one of our best kept secrets. From my own experience in a variety of churches and church meetings over the past few weeks I have not heard Creation Time mentioned once.
Thanks to the CEL Diary and the wonderful…Continue

Could you celebrate Creation Time 2011 to starting a local growing project?
If your church is in Wales there’s a new scheme to help create allotments, community gardens, community orchards and community supported agriculture. Called Tyfu Pobl (Growing People) it is a direct result of booming interest in community food growing and creating natural green spaces.

Whatever the immediate causes of the riots/disturbances that overtook many of England’s cities in August, there is a pressing need to address their underlying causes.
Whilst much has been written and said by politicians and pundits in the past 5-6 weeks, it is the communities, families and individuals directly affected by the disturbances who must be at the centre of determining not just what caused them, but what needs to be…Continue

An email arrived this week to let me know that Lincolnshire is the surprise winner of a public poll to find Britain’s Favourite Food Spot, seeing off tough competition from Cornwall and Hampshire.
The poll was conducted to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the national food celebration, British Food Fortnight, which starts this weekend. The story reported that an over-the-moon spokesman for Tastes of…Continue

Twenty years isn’t a long time in the grand sweep of history. Which makes it remarkable that agreements made in a very different world only two decades ago can have had such an impact on how countries and churches relate to each other.
In the mid-1980s Germany was divided and the Cold War…Continue

There we were, thinking the Anglican Communion was all about conflict and tension, scrapping and bitching, and someone has to spoil it by telling a different story. Where’s consistency when you need it?
I am in Oxford for the annual meeting of all the bishops in the Church of England. It…Continue

So, following on from my previous post – what have been the
genuine outcomes of inter faith relations over the past 10 years? In my humble
opinion it has undoubtedly been Christian-Muslim relations. Although there have
been countless attempts to present a contrary image the last 10 years has an
unsung story of Muslims and Christians trying their hardest to avert mistrust
