Reform magazine: May 2024 edition

Inside the May edition of Reform magazine, out now!

Progressive rock icon Rick Wakeman shares his love for the United Reformed Church in this month’s Reform. He talks Henry VIII and funeral hymns, and tells the magazine he likes to consider himself “a Christian who lives in the real world”.

Also in the real world, URC Youth Moderator Heather Moore says faith and physics make sense together, and the Revd Al Barrett is inspired by the secret world of fungi. Geoff Felton makes a pilgrimage right around his Mersey Synod, and walking enthusiast Stephen Thornton reflects on 60 years of ministry and mountains.

Two aspects of Jesus’ ministry are explored by Graham Handscomb and John Cooper – the failed “banality of evil” demonstrated by Christ’s crucifixion, and the hard call to non-violence revealed in Jesus’ example of peace.

Plus all the regulars – thoughtful reviews, a challenging crossword, and columnist Paul Kerensa, this month revealing a great business idea and asking if anyone wants to go halves.
