This evening I have had the privilege of speaking with students at Royal Holloway College in the University of London. They today began an occupation of their college, camping outside the Principal's office and calling on him to oppose the government's agenda for higher education.
In summer this year, I walked from Birmingham to London as a pilgrimage of repentance for my former homophobia. Since then, I’ve been a bit taken aback by the number of requests I’ve received to give talks about it. I’m really chuffed that so many people are interested.
This summer, I walked from Birmingham to London as a pilgrimage of repentance for my former homophobia. I feel like I'm only just beginning to understand what I learnt on the walk. Here I reflect on the experience and on the lessons I learnt.
I’ll soon be off to Greenbelt, a Christian festival that I really love attending every year. Thousands of people gather at Cheltenham for music, performances, worship, talks, debates and much more. I love it.
It's just over two weeks since I finished my pilgrimage of repentance for homophobia. In many ways, I'm only just beginning to realise how the pilgrimage has affected me. It's taught me a lot about prayer and hospitality, and developed my thoughts on the way that change happens in Church and society. Now I have a lot more questions.
