Hello! I’m a writer and artist.
My writing has been about religion. I suppose my main impulse has been to communicate Christianity to the liberal agnostics around me. Partly that has meant explaining the positive relationship between Christianity and secular humanism. Also it has led to a focus on the power of ritual, and its overlap with art.
My art has also been rooted in religion – see ‘Artist’ page for more.
I was interested in what you talked about on Radio 4 Sunday just now & felt cheated by Edward Stourton of the chance for you to make your points & me to hear them. (The BBC hires so many British Humanists, one would think their jobs are advertised on the Humanist notice board first. Perhaps the BBC & British Humanists are particular friends?)
The denigration & sidelining of Christianity saddens me & I hope we all have many chances to hear from you about aspects of how this is being done, so that we can understand & embrace who to credit for the best of how we live together.
