This new initiative from the Church of England sends you seven related bite-sized thoughts straight to your mobile or email. Why not journey through Lent with some soul[food], by picking each week one of the topics below (saving Easter to the end) - choose which ever order takes your fancy.  If you do try some soul[food] this Lent please email me a few sentences feedback, rector.esher@gmail.com,  so I can pass it on to the Diocese who gave me the free pack.  Thank you.

Suffering: if God exists, why doesn't he stop it?  Most answers to this question are unsatisfactory. Morris's book is different: short but not superficial, strong in its science and philosophy, and realistic - as a carer of his handicapped grandson. Like Stephen Hawking and Einstein, Morris tries to explore the mind of God. Violence began with the Big Bang, long before legendary Adam's sin.
