Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

Please Note: This site, and the social networking profile pages connected with it, reflect my personal interests & views which do not necessarily represent those of organisations I am affiliated / associated with.

Free Youcef Nadarkhani

The case of Youcef Nadarkhani, an Iranian Christian facing the death penalty for his ministry, reminds us that the freedoms we enjoy to believe and disbelieve are hard fought - and not yet won the world over. Indeed, it would appear Christians across the world are facing persecution - from Egypt, to China and even in India, a country reknowned for its colourful diversity. Having just finished reading Jean Hatton's biography of George Fox, and the details of how his body was repeatedly battered and broken from persecution, it strikes me that the right to believe, and not believe, is something we take for granted.
