Mike Ovey writes on the morning after the US presidential election.
How did you react to the news Donald Trump is President-elect of the most powerful nation on earth? Shock? A passing regret you didn't put a wad down at Ladbrokes on Trump winning? (The odds the day before the election were 9-2, so it would have been a nice little earner). For me, the sense was of continuity. A sense that this was the latest instalment of a series that has been running for a while now in western politics a continuation of a theme that has been at the heart of that series.
It was Diane Abbott, MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, who articulated this theme just after our own Brexit vote. She pointed out that one of the dimensions for some voters was their deep disillusion with the political classes. Among all the economic arguments pro and con and the discussions of democratic accountability, there was something else: a profound wish to punish a political elite that was perceived as self-serving, distant and smug.

Dan Strange has written about cultural apologetics and Christianity's relationship to other religions in an article for Christianity Today.
Over the last five years, my family and I have had the privilege of frequently visiting missionary friends in Athens. Every time I have gone, I have made sure to visit the Areopagus, the scene of Paul's address in Acts 17.
Of course, you have to use your imagination when visiting today. It's basically a big hunk of uneven shiny rock to clamber up on and walk around (being careful that the kids don’t topple off the sheer drop at the back!). But when I'm there, I always like making the point, to anyone around who'll listen, that I'm actually standing on the place where the actual apostle Paul preached to the Athenian cognoscenti all that time ago.
