It is my great pleasure to attach our annual magazine entitled 'The Power of Listening'. I do hope you enjoy reading the thoughts of, not just our LDCF members, but organisations we work with to help promote their amazing work, as well as hearing from some of our influencers in the House of Lords & Commons.
I pray this publication helps encourage and inspire you.

One of the many delights about being a member of our party is that conference still debates and votes on party policy. One amendment that elicited a large number of responses in Glasgow was proposed by Evan Harris and Julian Huppert during the Equalities Policy Paper debate. The first part of this called for an end to faith-based selection to all new state-funded schools and to phase this out over the next five years in all schools.
Widespread panic seems to have taken hold of much the political landscape as the realisation sinks in that the UK Independence Party (UKIP) could now be, as Farage has declared, ‘Serious Players.’
In the run up to the next general election, God and Politics, put on a series where writers were asked to discuss their reasons for their political views and how they related to their Christian faith. As part of this series, LDCF Exec member John Innes explained why, as a Christian, he votes Liberal Democrat.
This is an article I wrote that was published earlier this year in the Liberal Democrat's AdLib Magazine.
