Vulnerability

St Peters House · Vulnerability – Hannah Skinner – St Peter's House     I’ve been looking around and struggling to find a word to capture how the world looks to me at the moment. All these wary eyes peering over face-masks, stripped back and fraying nerves that flare weekly on a local and global…

Rent Strikes, Fencing, Racial Profiling – What is going on at Fallowfield Campus?

Students in halls are on rent strike, fences were hastily erected and then pulled down, a security guard is being investigated for ‘racial profiling’.  Fallowfield Campus appears to be the epicentre of all that is going wrong for students across the country this year.  The truth is that students have had a raw deal –…

Tearing Down The Walls

St Peters House · Tearing Down Walls     Tearing Down The Walls   There’s fire in the belly of the earth this week. Did you feel it? A rumbling fire that brought change and swelled emotion around the world. Anger, hope, fear and a million other feelings besides….    Walls went up, walls are…

Remember….

St Peters House · Remember…   I feel like I’ve been picked up by a gust of Winter wind, flurried around with a thousand curling leaves, spun ‘til I’m dizzy and don’t know if I’m stuck in a weird version of what’s already happened or a facing into a future where nothing makes sense anymore….…

Halloween, Thresholds and a Liminal Year

St Peters House · Halloween, Thresholds and a Liminal Year   In-between places. Liminal spaces….. 2020, for many of us, is one long year of being ‘on hold’.    No longer in the ‘what was’ of our old lives, but not yet able to begin the ‘what will be’ of whatever the future looks like…

All Will Be Well??

St Peters House · All Will Be Well?   All Will Be Well??   All Will Be Well. All Will Be Well…..? If I say it often enough can I make it sounds more real. More true.    We all know that, at the moment, at any given time things can all change again. “Christmas…

‘The Well’ – Tackling covid-crises on and around our campus community

You know Milk & Honey café? Non-profit, veggie, volunteer-run café; all big-heart-and-dreams, eco-goals, excellent coffee and cosy corners… Well, things look a little different round here right now, but we’ve gone nowhere. You can’t put a closed sign on a vision like this…. Like the rest of the world, covid-19 caught us out… but then…

Are you angry? If not… wake up.

Are you Angry? Really, deeply angry? Please tell me that you are. We should all be so very angry. I know that should is never OK, and that people should never be told how to feel… but right now… oh, I do hope that we are all joined up in a massive, collective, clenched-fist-grasped-tight-in-angry-clenched-fist around…

…not OK

“…not OK”. How simple and little… but how very hard it is to say these words. ‘Normal Life’, dressed up in its busyness and schedules, left little time for random fears, sudden teary-ness or introspection. But time stretches now like elastic… longer and longer, endlessly going in circles some days and then – ping! –…
