God's Geek

Reflections and random thoughts of a geeky youth worker in North London...

Tony Blair spoke to the Faithworks group of London churches today. You can read about it here:


Apparently, he said that Christian organisations have a crucial role to play in helping young people and wants churches to play a bigger role in national life. The election is probably now just over a month away and faith issues keep hitting the headlines. Is it just me or are 'religious' issues getting much more space for debate in the media and politics than they have previously?

And if so, why is this the case? Is it partly the influence of America? Or could it also be because evangelical Christians, who in the past have not focussed much on social issues and instead concentrated on their personal relationship with Jesus, are starting to realise that to follow Jesus means taking a passionate interest in the world around them - and being a voice to the voiceless?

As always, there are lots of overlapping issues here, but any one else's comments would be great...
