One Hundred Years of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity: 'In this week's All Things Considered, Roy Jenkins asks what of lasting worth has a century of praying for Christian unity produced? And what are the particular ecumenical challenges for the 21st century?' From BBC Wales.
Madeleine L'Engle 1918-2007: 'A powerful woman, large-hearted, fearless, quixotic, profoundly imaginative, unwilling to settle for mediocrity. Tall and queenly, she physically embodied her mental and spiritual attributes. I remember occasions when, in church during Advent, she would rise to full height, spread her arms wide like the Angel of the Annunciation, and declare, "Fear not!" in a tone that allowed no gainsaying. It was a challenge impossible to ignore.' This fine memorial essay appears in the current issue of Books and Culture (Chicago).

Redefining Christian Britain: Post 1945 Perspectives, edited by Jane Garnett, Matthew Grimley, Alana Harris, William Whyte and Sarah Williams, is reviewed by Richard Harries. 'Ever since the secularisation thesis was promoted more than 50 years ago, it has been disputed... These academics — a number of whom have Oxford connections — show a picture that is more subtle and nuanced, in which Christianity is being transformed in various ways.'
Praying with Paul, by Tom Small, is reviewed by Philip North in the Church Times and download a 27 page PDF of the book from the publisher. [Ed. The book is available, as far as we can tell, only from Church Times and the publisher.]

Keeping Epiphany: Full Homely Divinity has a good page on how to observe this wonderful feast that begins today.
People Not Presents: Chris Chivers writes in the Guardian (London) on the feast of the Epiphany. 'It's when we seem cut off from those possible moments of epiphany connecting and then transcending distinctions of old and young, rich and poor, black and white, Palestinian and Israeli, that we're most diminished as human beings. Because it's in those moments, of course, that we discover what it really means to be human.'
