The last enemy

Covid-19 has changed our society in many ways, and one of these is its view of death. For the pandemic has shaken our complacent confidence about sickness and death, hasn’t it?

Reflections on race

When I was young, I had big ideas on race. Now I am older my ideas are smaller because I realise issues are more complicated than I once thought. I am also conscious of the pressure of a news cycle that demands simplicity. ‘You must take a position and you must take it now,’…

Mincaye Enquedi (90) passed away peacefully at home in the tiny village of Tzapino on 28 April 2020. Very few people will know the name, and fewer still will mourn his passing. While he was largely unknown on earth, he is now, by God’s grace, well known in heaven. Mincaye, meaning wasp, was born…

Why we won’t celebrate the Lord’s Supper until we are together
