A new review for Working with Released Prisoners on the Anglican Readers’ site.
Leaving prison is a hugely stressful time for those who have been locked up. Check out my latest Medium post here.
Why the church is ideally suited for supporting released prisoners … and why it is not.
Read it here.
The first two are linked below – subsequent posts will follow.
Some images from the launch event at Dove Church last weekend.
Jamie Hill led worship; we heard from Walk Ministries Staffers Wez and John, and from Simon Edwards, Chief Exec of Walk Ministries.
I reads a couple of passages from the Book that will appear on my YouTube channel pretty soon.
Go to Amazon…
What new story shall we tell?
Pen poised, ink at hand;
A monk with his parchment,
I regard the taught softness of your skin.
Many tales are told within this frame
Hidden writing, words re-cognised,
Re-formed, thoughts realigned.
The surface ready for the shock of ink.
The stylus swoops and dips.
Clause and meaning spring to life,
The subtlety of language.
Tales are interwoven in this place;
A shared and secret grammar;
A mystery; the mastery of form.
