We are a diverse group of Christian freelancers (see below) who have collaborated to curate daily reflections during Lent. Each week will have a theme, explored 6 different ways on 6 days (nothing on most Sundays).

The project will start on Ash Wednesday (Feb 17th) – and we will also post on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

Search for #LentVoices on Facebook and LinkedIn, content may also be posted to other social media sites.

You have 15 minutes to discuss the ‘One Big Thing’​ dominating your thinking…

…what would you be talking about?

For the couple of months, it’s genuinely been my amazing privilege to host and participate in a series of 15 minute* conversations with amazing people talking about the ‘one big thing’ dominating their thinking.

Each and every one of those conversations has left me energisedhopeful and with some further personal and professional reflection to do.

The guests have been a disparate bunch – at least on an initial observation. Comics to Coaches; Members of Parliament to members of the clergy; youth work specialists, writers and CEOs

And the topics might likewise appear disconnected – but there have been surprising and encouraging overlaps, and what links them all is a sense of hope, possibility and potential. What has struck me (having been part of every conversation) is the commonality within the series – people wrestling with change that has been forced upon them to an extent, driven and shaped by a pandemic that no theoretical framework could have truly mitigated for, who are nonetheless determined to turn the manure generated into a compost for something beautiful.

I’ve conducted a series of short interviews (15 minutes each, give or take) asking guests from a wide variety of backgrounds what their ‘One Big Thing’ is – the thought dominating their personal or professional lives at the moment.

It’s been a fantastic thing to host.

My guests have included Stand Up Comics, Coaches, Youth Specialists, CEOs, Church Ministers, Therapists, Authors and more.

The topics we have mulled over have included change, trauma, noticing, flow, opportunity, radical creativity – all wrapped up in a mixture of challenge and hope.

Check out the youtube channel for more – the first interview went live on Friday 24th July, and there will be a new one going up each Monday, Wednesday and Friday until the series runs out.

If you would like to be a guest, and/or know someone else who would be interested, drop me a quick email.
