"None of these is without difficulty"
Last Sunday I preached from 1 Peter 3, on ' An Understated Journey' . (Download the mp3 here: An Understated Journey - 1 Peter 3:13-22) Most of which is deeply challenging but fairly straight forward to understand, except that it includes this: “…he went an...

Of insane fairy tales
The highlight of my weekend was probably sitting in the M&S cafe with my six year old and finishing off reading The Silver Chair with him. And being praised by a primary school teacher at the next table for doing so - and not just giving him a device to pla...

Suffering: Karma vs. Resurrection
Job is a typical man - a blessed man in a fruitful eastern landscape. Behind the scenes - Satan and the Triune God. Satan is a shady figure, confined to wander the earth, living on a short leash, and with a simple satanic premise: people love God because Go...

"Everything’s s’pposed to be different than what it is here"
Sin is one of the hardest subjects to speak about well today. As Francis Spufford observes in his book Unapologetic we think of sin as trivial naughtiness, prompting him to try the term HPTFTU as an alternative phrase. It's easily misheard or is a term that...

Reflecting on #ilovemycity
As a church we're persuaded from the Bible that we're to explore, experience and express the goodness of God across our city. From a preaching perspective we work through different books of the Bible and seek to hear the good news of Jesus in the language a...

What if Paul wrote Judeans instead of Romans?
I've been reading Paul's letter to the Roman church this year with someone in our church. We've recently finished and one of our concluding observations was to ask what if the story had been different. It's one way to work out if you've caught the message t...

An understated journey
Talking about talking about Jesus isn't easy to do. It's technical term "evangelism" sounds like something manipulative you might do to people you hate (though the word just means spreading good news...) I read a slightly scaremongering story recently sugge...

When worlds collide
Four words for dealing with difference. Subversive Fulfillment.  This comes from J.H.Bavinck via Daniel Strange's  For their rock is not as our rock. Fulfilment is all very C.S.Lewis. It's the observation that for all of us there are desires that point to a...

'What kind of day has it been?'
Mary got up early that morning. Her world at fallen apart at the best she could do was to walk out of the city to anoint his body. Her world had caved in. Light would come but if you'd seen her along the path you'd have met a broken woman. Perhaps, if Briti...

All is gift (reflecting on the sacraments)
I had the opportunity to travel to London on Monday for a day with Peter Leithart, a pastor, author and scholar from the US who spoke on the place of the Sacraments in the life of the church. I was deeply struck by the high value he placed on unity in the c...
