Bunyan’s progress: a dissenter in our midst

“Confession time: when I was asked to write this anglican focus feature about John Bunyan, I had never read The Pilgrim’s Progress. This has, therefore, been an opportunity to treasure, as Bunyan captures his characters so well that we can easily think of people like them in our own lives and sometimes we see them in the mirror,” says The Rev’d Peter Judge-Mears from the Parish of Wishart, as John Bunyan is commemorated in our Lectionary on 31 August

The Transfiguration of Our Lord

“This painting is a mural behind the High Altar in the Chapel of the Transfiguration at the College in Colombo, Sri Lanka where my husband Karol was educated and where we have worshipped from time to time. With his choice of subdued colours, the artist, David Paynter intentionally seeks to convey this deeply spiritual experience in the life of Jesus,” says Deanna Misso, as the Transfiguration is celebrated on 6 August
