Centre for Public Christianity (January 2013)

The first newsletter of 2013 from the Centre for Public Christianity contains links to several video interviews, among which are the following:

Tim Costello, CEO of World Vision, on why he campaigns so strenuously against poker machines, and why he sees problem gambling as an issue of social justice.

Stanley Hauerwas on ways the contemporary church has gone wrong, such as trading its belief in the God of the Bible for a God that guarantees the American dream.

There are also links to some audio files:

• Clinical psychologist Leisa Aitken talks about the use of mindfulness within clinical psychology, covering its spiritual dimension, its limits and benefits.

• Cultural commentator Mark Sayers offers his diagnosis of the modern West’s restlessness through the idea of ‘the road’.
