‘Magic’ and ‘sorcery’ conjure up images of Harry Potter, Disney’s Fantasia, or perhaps Macbeth. However, while modern secular society dismisses witchcraft, Dr Jonathan Burnside explains in our new Cambridge Paper, Covert Power, why we should take witchcraft seriously.

Eschatology is neither remote nor esoteric, but is highly relevant to Christian living. The ‘last days’ are here, the Messiah is reigning now at the right hand of God the Father, and Christians are to pray (as Jesus famously taught his disciples) for God’s will to be done right here, right now. The glory of God’s future kingdom critiques all our efforts but spurs us ever on to work out our obedience in all areas of life.

The arguments for legalising assisted suicide and euthanasia are in the process of imperceptibly changing from a duty of compassion towards the suffering, into the right of self-destruction for the hopeless. They are predicated on a potent individualistic delusion of isolated autonomous choice, a refusal to acknowledge the reality of our mutual interconnectedness and interdependence as human beings in society. The principled opposition of our current law to homicide and assisted suicide provides an essential safeguard for carers, for the medical profession and for the elderly and vulnerable who may fear that their lives have become burdensome and valueless.
Jubilee Centre Events, May 2010
At our day conference in May, a variety of speakers helped us consider the search for relational hope in the 21st century. It was opened by politics professor and pastor Dale Kuehne, for whom Perry Miller's phrase 'Standing on the threshold of an inconceivable age' encapsulates what it is to look out into a postmodern future.

Marriage rates in England and Wales have fallen to their lowest level since records began in 1862. This need not necessarily be a bad thing as the number of marriages in a given year may mask, for instance, the fact that there were an unusually high number of marriages in the previous year or that most people are already married. More worryingly, however, a broader measure of the health of marriage introduced by the Jubilee Centre in 2009 has also dropped to a new low, dipping below 60 per cent for the first time.

Modern slavery is thriving and millions of vulnerable people are subjected to debt bondage and trafficked across the globe. In many parts of the world, women are oppressed by honour killings, forced prostitution, genital excision, (sex-selective) abortion, and exclusion from education and literacy. The poor are exploited by unfair trade, and large swathes of the world’s population are denied basic religious freedoms.

Written from a primarily Christian perspective but also applying widely accepted international principles, Peacemakers: Building stability in a complex world by Peter Dixon explores the nature and causes of conflict and the options for intervention before going on to suggest how people can involve themselves in working towards peace, stability and reconciliation as third parties in 21st century violent conflict, particularly those of an intra-state nature.
