love

remembering

In the words of Archbishop Justin, “After so many wars, history requires us to to say yes to the words of Jesus who tells us that love for our enemies is in fact the only way to eliminate them – we make them our friends – and change our world forever.”

invited

“Making shelter for Jesus” is the compelling invitation of Richard Rohr’s new title, Eager to Love. It constructs pathways and meeting points with God, offered alongside a unique encounter with Francis of Assisi and the invitation to wholeness. Rohr with deft touch and insight offers us fresh ways, that are free of ‘shoulds and musts’. […]

‘stego’

is one of the bible discoveries that’s still lingering on with me. So here’s some more of the content from last weekends talk that’s producing good things in me. The consistent indicator of the impact of a passage on me, is always. I end up talking through ideas from my talks in my conversation with […]

off-cuts!

Even more, we’re challenged to arrange our lives in such a way as to be daily frustrated. Let me explain. We can each most easily default to comfort and convenience, we’re often unaware of how […]

love

and after all……love! “Mostly what God does is love you. Keep company with him and learn a life of love. Observe how Christ loved us. His love was not cautious but extravagant. He didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. Love like that.” Ephesians 5, […]
