“CGN 2020 Annual Report”
“Together we can do much more than we can separately! We have provided the financial and annual report for you to see what God has done in this unprecedented year and for you to pray about partnering with us financially. With your help, we can reach our goal of becoming a financially independent organization focused on advancing the gospel to the world.”⠀

“The Sad Irony of Celebrity Pastors”The Spectator
“Instead of making me want to become more like them, it looks very much as if they want to become more like me.”

“The Cult of Christian Trumpism”The Gospel Coalition
“At the same time, there is a theological heart to Christian Trumpism. Please note that I am not talking about voting for President Trump or one’s appraisal of the election’s outcome. Equally sincere Christians may be divided over these matters, which is why the Lord gave us Christian freedom to vote our conscience. Further, I’ve said quite a lot over the past several decades in criticism of those on the left (as well as the right) for trying to make Jesus a mascot in the culture wars. My public calling is not to bind Christian consciences to my own political positions.”

“Christmas with Creation Fest”Creation Fest UK
“Join us for a very festive Christmas with Creation Fest extravaganza!

Hosted by Emma Fowle and Gareth Dix, coming to you from the beautiful Truro Cathedral, here in the heart of Cornwall!”

“Christmas Truce: The Day World War I Stopped”
“That’s when something extraordinary transpired that has never been repeated, at least not in the same way, nor on the same scale. In the north by Ypres that night, the British soldiers listened as the shelling was replaced by a chorus of ‘O Tannenbaum’ The unexpected beauty was remarkable enough for them to answer with ‘The First Noel,’ and then the two opposing armies joined together singing, ‘O Come All Ye Faithful.'”
