the door

I was reminded of this poem leading our recent Evangelism and Witness consultation, some abbreviated words by Sam Shoemaker – The Door “I stand by the door. I neither go to far in, nor stay to far out. The door is the most important door in the world – It is the door through which […]

seasonal inspiration

“Give up for a while your false and failing attempts at merriment, and thank God for thin places, and for Advent, for a season that understands longing and loneliness and long nights. Let yourself fall open to Advent, to anticipation, to the belief that what is empty will be filled, what is broken will be […]

“Sin hurts people and ruins relationships. But perhaps the greatest tragedy is what sin keeps us from – the grand adventure of a life lived with and for God.” Drew Dyck 1 ++Justin on sin, salvation and his story, to the media. Well said. 2 Sleep and creativity, neatly explored. 3 Brian Zahnd and being […]

today

sees us clamour a little……. My heroically lovely sister claims more of the *green than me!! My passport says British, like hers but we’re never going to get tribal in the kingdom of God, but on St Patricks day, it’s always going to be colourful and predictable on social media. Lincoln said it earliest and […]

A change of pace during half-term has been very good to me. A change of pace, always brings a change of perspective.

We had […]

All you need to do is tell your story. The beautiful thing about sharing your faith story is that nobody can deny it. No […]

off-cuts!

Here’s some of the many parts that didn’t make it into today’s preach…… Gerald May, a brilliant Christian psychiatrist wrote this;- “Honesty before God requires the most fundamental risk of faith we can take: the risk that God is good and that God loves us unconditionally. It is in taking this risk that we rediscover […]

wonderful

Here’s some lyrics that really caught me again this week. Oldies but so true. “Wonderful grace,  That gives what I don’t deserve, Pays me what Christ has earned, Then lets me go free.
