An Obedient Family

The last few months have been challenging for everyone. It’s been encouraging to see God’s family respond creatively to each other’s needs when a lot of the ways we normally do things aren’t available. Praise God for how He’s been helping us! Our passage this week (1 John 2:1-6) assures…

True Fellowship

We’re beginning our series on Living in God’s Family today, as we dig into 1 John, a letter written by one of Jesus’ closest friends about 50 years after Jesus died and rose from the dead. It’s a great letter because it gives us the reflections of one of the…

Align – God’s Heart > Our Mission

This week we’ve been challenged by God’s great passion to reach the lost with the good news of his Son. There’s still a long way to go, as we can see from this graphic (check out joshuaproject.net for more details). There are so many people groups who are yet to…

Align – God’s Heart > Our Mission

It’s GMC week, and what a great time to take stock of our passion to see the unreached reached. When we consider the life and ministry of Jesus, it challenges our view of the world and its peoples. When Jesus reached out to Zaccheaus (someone considered a great sinner and…

Caring for others in a Pandemic

It’s a cliché that we’re in uncharted waters, but it’s true. But we know Who’s steering the ship, and there are no safer and more loving hands. It’s a great comfort to know that God is our refuge and strength (Psalm 46:1). How can we care well for others at…

Welcome!

Welcome to our spiritual home! It’s the one we have here on earth, so it’s a bit temporary – we’re headed to our permanent home in the perfect new creation with Jesus. There are a few imperfections in this one – we’re still working on it (and God is still…

Radical Relationships

Jesus is Lord is one of the most significant statements that can be made. It was the first “creed” of Christians (as in a foundational, game-changer statement). Being saved by Jesus and living under his rule and direction changes everything. Especially our relationships. With God, with others, with God’s world.…

Who am I?

The question of identity is a big one these days. Different people want to define themselves in different ways, sometimes without any regard for any kind of reality. The UK government is spending half a million pounds investigating the idea of “pregnant men”. We all know that there is a…

The Conflict Cancer

Anybody who has ever been in a serious conflict knows only too well how all-consuming it is. It saps our time, thoughts, energy and diminishes our resilience and ability to reach out to others. It’s like a cancer of the soul. What is true at the personal level is true…

The depression epidemic

According to the World Health Organisation, depression is the leading cause of disability globally. 300 million people suffer from it. It’s something that is common, so something we need to understand – for our own sake and for the sake of others so that we can be good Christ-like carers…
