From SydneyAnglicans.net The Oxford English Dictionary has named ‘post-truth’ the international word of the year. This is not surprising given that the Brexit vote and US election were enmeshed in what is being called post-truth politics. Let’s face it – there is so much ‘post-truth’ around. The rise of social media has been fuelled by people who […]
Sinfest has to be one of my favourite online comics. Always clever, often stimulating, sometimes awkward! This from 10 years ago is well worth an airing: Psa. 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. 2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal […]
A fun but thought-provoking video from the always-excellent Lutheran Satire to kick us off. I have a lot of sympathy for this.

Thank you to everyone who got in touch to let me know I got named in today’s Fairfax piece by Elizabeth Farrelly, “When the Anglican church can’t follow its own code” originally titled “When the Anglican church has forsaken it’s own values”. I’ll let the reader decide for themselves what they make of the article. […]
