The Bothy Sessions: update

A very exciting collaborative team, including quality film-makers and screen-writers, have now gathered around this project. We paused on the filming of The Bothy Sessions a couple of weeks ago sensing that there was more in the Lord’s heart about this than just a cool book review/response.

Does God Like Evangelism?

My afternoon has been pleasantly hijacked by an Instagram post of my former Pastor, Paul Scanlon.
