Oxted update

HT to the guys at Oxted & Limpsfield Residents Group, who's site has alerted me to the fact that the news about potential over-development of green field land in Oxted made the BBC website today.

After having heard about this initially last week, on Sunday afternoon I took a run - more like a stagger really - across one of the beautiful fields in question, and it really would be criminal if it were to be built over.

Hey my name is D.O. and I recently posted a comment on your post about Shane Claiborne telling you about Another World is Possible. Well I've just got one more thing I wanted to tell you about and then I'll leave you alone. The folks who made the AWIP DVD's are making a feature-length documentary called "The Ordinary Radicals." The film will address many of the negative stereotypes that are affiliated with present-day Christianity, and tell the stories of ordinary folks who are disproving these generalizations. People doing pretty amazing things, motivated by their faith. I think you should check it out. Interviews include folks like Shane Claiborne, Rob Bell, Brian McLaren, Becky Garrison, and a whole host of others. If you'd like to learn more or pre-order the DVD, check out the website at

I know this has nothing to do with your post, but I couldn't find an email link anywhere on your site. I hope you don't mind. Feel free to delete the comment. I won't mind.

Hi Johnny, interesting to see it made the BBC. It would be criminal indeed if the developers are allowed to get their way. I suspect they bought this land cheaply (because it's Green Belt) and have been sitting on it waiting for the moment to pounce.

Hi Bigblue

I'm just hoping - somehow - that common sense will prevail.
