Successful Misfits? People of Repentance, People of Fierce Hope.
Sometimes faithful witness requires us to question the compromises society takes for granted and pay the price for it.
A Vocational Mandate for Work
At the intersection of professional excellence, cultural relevance, and their Christian faith, Cross-Current participants inhabit a liminal space of risk and opportunity.
A Move From Subject to Project
As the digital is a medium of projection, “people no longer consider themselves subjects that are cast under a general law but as self-designing—self-casting and, indeed, self-optimizing—projects”.
From the Hand to the Finger
'Homo digitalis' uses his finger (his digit) to interact with the world. Above all, the finger counts. Either he is always counting and calculating, or else he is always being counted and calculated.
Homo Digitalis, and the Flight Into the Image
Social media is a medium of immediate presence. As representation is giving way to online presence, the swarm enters, dissolving old limitations at its own peril.
In the Swarm. Outrage Society.
Byung-Chul Han, the Korean-German thinker, offers us a stark contrast: pursue the fleeting outrage that is amplified online, at the peril of our democracy or re-integrate discourse, urgently.
Saving Beauty
Should we save beauty or could we be saved by it?
'See That You Also Excel in This Grace of Giving'
There is no way to become spiritually mature unless we commit our finances to the Lord. We need to be intentional and diligent about it.

'See That You Also Excel in This Grace of Giving'
There is no way to become spiritually mature unless we commit our finances to the Lord. We need to be intentional and diligent about it.
The Lord is Near
Crises force us to reconsider our ways. When we’re reminded of how little control we have over our circumstances we realise the most significant decision is choosing between anxiety and dependence.
Remember God
Every once in a while, we are confronted with challenging times, personal or social crises which remind us just how dependent we truly are. Remembering God is long overdue. Now the time has come.
Make Money Serve Grace.
Let’s be honest! Money is powerful. It is insidious: it grabs our attention, it seduces us, it claims our love and allegiance. Money needs to be tamed: we need to make money serve people.
Above All Else, Guard Your Heart!
We deal with money every day, one way or another. How we relate to money and possessions is a spiritual matter. It truly is a heart issue.
Rescuing Ambition
Ambition is part of what makes us human. The Creator of all is glorious and interested in glory. How do we rightly rescue ambition, and rightly direct it?
The Second Mountain
“On the first mountain you tend to be ambitious, strategic, and independent. On the second mountain you tend to be relational, intimate, and relentless.” David Brooks
Integrating Generosity into Our Lives
Integrating generosity into our lives is fundamentally a heart issue. The way we relate to money and possessions is a spiritual matter. How we use our resources reveals our priorities.
Examining Our Motivations for Christian Giving
Generous living is living a sacrificial life. A life of joy and ultimate freedom: not merely giving enough so we have a clear conscience, but willing to let go of anything that God might ask us to.
Christmas: The Celebration of Sacrificial Generosity
What’s the true meaning of generosity? Ultimate generosity involves giving oneself, not merely giving something or sharing resources. The greatest gift of all is Immanuel.
On Being & Knowing - A Response
The current zeitgeist says loud and clear; "the journey is the destination". Why are we even travelling? How are we trying to find who we are? Maybe the story is more important than the journey.
