Called Out of Darkness

Over Christmas I read Called Out of Darkness by Anne Rice, which turned out to be a very interesting story of a famous and wealthy writer, brought up in the Roman Catholic Church, who lost her faith, yet “…after thirty-eight years as an atheist, she turned back to Christ, not in blind faith but in a profound transcendental surrender made with open eyes to an all-knowing God…” So says the dust jacket.

With so many prominent people in the U.K. who are former Catholics and now determinedly antagonistic to Christian faith, this was an unusual and moving story.

Jolly Good Chap

The more I read or see of the Archbishop of York the more I like him and his views. If you have 15 minutes read his City of Peace Lecture to Newcastle City Council on 3 February, 2010. Well worth the time.
