five on Friday

“Our Father, You come seeking fruit. Teach me, I pray You, to realise how truly this is the one object of my existence, and of my union to Christ” Andrew Murray 1 Performing never changes anything. Real does, because discipleship matters. 3DM great content here.  2 Alex Absalom on the missional church and weekend services. […]

Here’s some of what today taught me……… I love it how God choreographs different passages and different talks on the same day. Recovering from repeated mockage about being a crocs wearer when spotted on Friday! Having more invites to play candy crush than to read the bible today, again! Is our culture more distraction than […]

I’ve had a great weekend, and to add to that; to get to serve our children by helping them learn to be pray and be more confident about Jesus; just immense! In the many spoken-out prayer requests….One sounded just like this:- “Dear God might there be snow so I can have a snow day with […]

Here’s todays…. ‘Sunday Taught What?’ Cold-wet-autumn has really landed: far too early! Am liking Pro-presenter, techie-goodness with the effortless Tim V at the helm. Top-class. We attempted video-recording for another use….. all great apart from the sound capacity! Survival and ‘getting by’ can be all-too-easily the pattern of our lives. There is so much more…. how can […]

STW 5.viii.2012

So here’s a little of what Sunday taught me…..! Jesus has irreparably changed the world…His Word exalts, frightens, shocks & forces us to reassess our whole life. Obscure passages are troublesome, engaging and yet provoke only more depth, hunger and searching……so how did any of you get on with the trickey good steward / unjust […]


Theres a little bit of Nicodemus in all of us……. That head-and-head wrestle continues! Great BCP / Lectionary readings today……Trinity Sunday A fresh vision of history’s last chapter,….is more than enough to sustain us in the now…… “In a dark world, we lift the bread and wine.” …..from my journalled prayers:- Lord Jesus Christ, you […]

STW 15.iv.2012

Participating in and cheering on our children’s work today:- the Emmaus Road story, is layered with meaning and possibility! Is discerning Jesus only more likely when we slow down…..? Mission, hospitality and table fellowship are inextricably bound up as one for me…. Storytelling is pure adventure….and something I want to continue growing in….. Not only […]

STW 8.iv.2012

Easter Day is glorious hope…. It’s the day that death, forever dies! ‘Concupiscience’ from Colossians 3 KJV-style will always stick in the gums, without practice!?! Familiarity can make us apathetic to gospel truth. The substance of the resurrection is undeniable! Easter is the cosmic ‘ta-dah’ moment!!  Jesus said, “Because I live, you will live also!” […]

STW 4.iii.2012

Confession is about healing that pours into our cracked & hurting lives, our alone places. Confession is about coming clean with the fact that, left to our lonesome, we are lost – but also owning the fact that we dare to long for much, much more. To confess is to say the truth about ourselves […]

Prayer for 1st Sunday in Lent

Jesus may we follow you on the pilgrim way of Lent, May we journey with you into the wilderness, Willing to move beyond the ordinary, So that we can discover your unexpected sacred places. Jesus may we wash our hands and purify our hearts, Learning to thirst after righteousness and hunger after justice, May we […]
