Gospel Chivalry?

Ladies … you’re standing on the bus. A man taps you on the shoulder and offers you his seat. Do you: a.) kick him in the groin — how dare he patronise you – and in a public place? Or b) .….

Gospel Chivalry is just one post on Emma Scrivener’s thoughtful but gentle blog “A New Name” which won first prize in the Christian New Media Awards  for the category: Best Blogger 2014.

In Two Ticks, No Dog she uncovers a well observed but rarely discussed aspect of marriage .…there’s something in a woman that wants to control; and there’s something in a man that wants to retreat. And when the two things meet, it strikes at the heart of marriage and the heart of relationship… Agree or disagree?.


Emma also tells her own story of a long, long battle with Easting Disorders here. This is a far more sobering and personal story.

Over the next few weeks I will feature a number of truly exceptional posts and articles from winners and finalists of the Christian New Media Awards 2014.
