Reform magazine: February 2024 issue out now!

A moving story of solidarity begins February’s Reform interview with Rabbi Jonathan Wittenburg.

The rabbi talks to Stephen Tomkins about the pain of the current war in Gaza and the West Bank. He also discusses his new book, which unpacks the scriptures of the Torah, shared by both Jews and Christians.

Within those scriptures, Andy Lie finds a model of leadership that he says modern-day politicians might do well to study. Meanwhile, turning to the New Testament, Sam Richards explores what we have to learn from Jesus about young people, and the question “Did Jesus really cast out demons?” receives four thought-provoking responses.

On the letters pages, there is praise for the new-look URC-Reform podcast; and one church says the problems it has been having with its bank mirrors wider issues experienced by churches and charities across the UK.
