3. My piece about Olly Knight’s song about the fatherhood of God, ‘Fountain of Goodness’. 

4. My piece on Geero’s brilliant PrayerMate app.

5. Mini-article on Google’s revealing end of 2012 search data.

6. My 5 ‘take homes’ on public speaking from BBC4’s ‘Speeches that Shook the World’ programme.

7. Review of Vaughan Roberts’ important 10ofThose book, ‘True Friendship’.
