This is my second article in Christian Today this week. They asked me to write about Keir Starmer’s astonishing volte face re his visit to the Jesus House church. I threw in Boris Johnson’s Easter comments for good measure. It’s not disconnected with the first – Lessons for today from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World…Sir Keir Starmer’s apology only reveals the intolerance of our so-called ‘diverse’ society – CT — TheWeeFlea.com
In for a penny in for a pound. Whilst Premier Christianity has cancelled me, Christian Today so far remains faithful. This is my latest article for them (and it seems to be meeting a need – as it is their most read article). The bogeyman of ‘Conversion Therapy’ is being used to attack…If Conversion Therapy is Banned, it is the Bible that will be Silenced — TheWeeFlea.com
It’s a hard time to lead sung worship in church right now. Congregational singing – the heart of our ministry – has been stripped away, and we’re left with what feels like an empty shell. The tangible, audible signs that God’s word is in fact dwelling in people richly have vanished. Like many around me, […]Do not lose Heart — Evangelicals Now
Why was I Cancelled and Repented for by Premier Christianity? I am going to tell you a story which is somewhat unbelievable – one which I am kind of reeling from. One which for me personally has significant implications, and I think (without I hope being too grandiose) has implications for the wider evangelical church…Why was I Cancelled and Repented for by Premier Christianity? — TheWeeFlea.com
I rarely post other people’s articles here, but sometimes one comes along that is so essential that I feel I have to pass it on. In this case especially for those of you who don’t read The Australian it would be a shame if you missed this absolute gem from one of my favourite journalists – Janet…In Defence of Women – An Essential Article for Understanding our Culture — TheWeeFlea.com
Letter from Australia 82 – A Big Country and Spiritual Mourning Dear Brothers and Sisters, I guess the title of this week’s letter is hardly ‘click bait’. Who wants to read about mourning – never mind spiritual mourning?! I hope you do – or at least will benefit from it. I got the title and…Letter from Australia 82 – A Big Country and Spiritual Mourning — TheWeeFlea.com

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, 33 short overviews of the lives of believers throughout history, who were dedicated to serving God by spreading the Gospel at home and abroad.
For me it was a memory jogger, bringing back salient particulars of renown servants of God. Beginning with the Apostle Paul it then jumps to John Wycliffe and the 16th century reformers, subsequently working through the Evangelical Awakening and Missionary Movement of the 18th and 19th centuries to finish in modern times with C.S. Lewis, J.I. Packer, Jim Elliot and Chuck Colson. It introduced me to James Hannington, John Sung, and William Cameron Townsend, but left me wondering about the inclusion of Martin Niemuller.
For the younger generation, it could be a primer and possibly an incentive to explore, learn and emulate. It might also make suitable reading for family worship, educating and informing the next generation. I still remember reading ‘A Lion in Africa’, the story of David Livingstone as a boy!
Its publication is surely timely, there is a real need to stir again the vision given by our Lord’s example and His command to preach the Gospel to the whole world, perhaps, if put into the right hands it might stir readers to pray, act and even provide material for a future book of a similar kind.
