A case of Cohen - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Monogamy is not the first word that comes to mind when the name Leonard Cohen is heard. He was, to say the least, a bit of a lad.

I have just finished Sylvie Simmons' excellent and very…

Live in my lounge - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Last night Rory Butler did a lounge gig in my house. Around 20 of us knocked back the wine while listening to some wonderful guitar playing and great songs by the 22 year old Scot.

I have posted about him before – and can’t work out how to upload the video from my iPhone to this blog (yes,…

Sex, women and Eurovision - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Conversations with journalists often involves challenging the suggestion that the Church of England spends all its time in conflict over sex and women. If 5% of what we talk about forms 95% of media coverage about us and this shapes 100% of popular perception about the church’s preoccupation, no…

Talking the blues - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Given the awful news in the last week of deaths in Afghanistan (6 British soldiers and then 16 Afghan civilians), I wasn’t sure what to write for Pause for Thought on this morning’s Chris Evans Show on BBC Radio 2. How do we address something like this in a couple of minutes in the context of a…

The legend of Marley - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

I just got news of a new film about the legendary Bob Marley. A mate of mine did the song on the trailer and it all looks worth a look.

Military Wives - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

There I was, all set up to talk about football and the Brontës, then I find the studio full of women singing. And aren’t they brilliant?

 

On this morning’s BBC Radio 2 Chris Evans Show Gareth Malone brought 20 of the 100 Military Wives choir (whose single Wherever You Are must surely go…

Three disclaimers and a plug - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Just for the record, I note the following:

1. On BBC Radio 4′s excellent ‘The Report’ programme, broadcast last night, I was introduced as having been a vicar in Southwark before moving to Bradford. Not true. I told…

I can’t dance - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

If you have a problem, why broadcast it to over ten million people? Good question.

I was back in the Chris Evans studio at BBC Radio 2 to do Pause for Thought this morning after a six month break while I settled in to Bradford. I’ve missed it – not because I’m a groupie, but because (a) it…

I love this town - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Actually, that’s the title of a song by Clive Gregson. I’d heard of him before, but not heard him. Last night he was the support act for Jools Holland at the brilliant…

Imelda gets it - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

Several years ago I was at the Royal Albert Hall for the annual Jools Holland gig. Support acts are sometimes a bit hit and miss, but that year it was stunning.

When the subtle spirit flees… - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

 

Life is a bit full-on this week because of a deluge of speaking engagements and my final working weekend in Croydon. So, there hasn’t been much time for blogging.

The work I have been doing in my study has been accompanied by the most hauntingly beautiful music that helps make sense of some of the contradictions of life, yet also makes me feel guilty for being moved by it.…

Beauty in the darkness - Nick Baines's blog - Musings of a restless bishop

 

All around the world is going mad. Regimes we have armed, funded and cosied up to are now being threatened with war crimes trials. The victors always implement the ‘justice’ and write the histories. So far, anyway. And the prophets warn that justice will one day be done.

Not for the…

Launching the Good Society Conversation

Listening to the periphery at the heart of WestminsterThere was something intensely symbolic and powerful about yesterday’s launch of the Good Society Conversation by Churches Together in Britain and Ireland and Church Action on Poverty:  Eighty people packed into the Cardinal Hume Centre’s children’s centre, a stone’s throw from Westminster’s power places – Parliament, Whitehall, Abbey and Cathedral - yet somehow a million miles away from the formalities of what now passes for conventional…See More
