Introduction I live in the beautiful West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom with my lovely wife and two children and I am currently a vicar within the Church of England I believe profoundly in the Church as a transformative power within society to build the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. I believe that this kingdom is marked by audacious love and self - sacrifice from the Church. And I believe that I am one of many called to equip the Church with the skills it needs to build this kingdom (and to build it through my participation within the Church). This is why I write, speak, and blog. I believe that the kingdom of God is best made manifest through evangelism, social justice, and environmentalism. To this end most of my work focuses on using the Bible as a lens to explore these areas. I hope to help you develop in your faith and discipleship walk with Jesus as you progress towards spiritual maturity. Both personally and during my ministry I attempt to implement a more environmentally and socially just version of life – looking at all areas of human experience using self-sacrifice and alternative methods to live in a more conscious way.
