Roundup: Religion and culture, disappearing rural churches, the Holy Land, sermon resources, same-sex marriage

How much Christianity is hidden in society?

As Lent starts, the debate over secularism v cultural Christianity is raging. But just how much of British culture is inspired by religion?

Sermons That Work, a popular and heavily utilised offering for clergy and lay leaders, is expanding to provide additional services.
