The Kingdom of God at my Dinner Table

The other night I invited six people to a dinner party that I was hosting for my birthday. I picked six because I have a table that seats that many and I didn't want it to be so big that people would break off into groups to talk. I desired ideally, good conversation...

Were the teachings of Jesus extreme?

Were the teachings of Jesus extreme? In the space of one day I came across these two quotes; 'It's surprising how extreme Jesus' teachings are. If we find ourselves on a comfortable middle ground, we're probably not following him' And, 'As for the parables, Jesus knew...

Why Men Need to Engage in the ‘Gender Debate’.

A few weeks ago I preached at my church on the 'Theme of Women in the Gospel of Luke'. It was in the context of a series on Luke but I was still quite anxious. I was worried that I would be seen as getting on my hobby horse and I feared isolating people in my...

Why it’s not just about Women in Ministry

The other night I went to see, hear and experience three women singing in a performance called 'Sing the Truth'. The musical director who was a drummer, who was a female, who had won a Grammy for musical direction, themed the performance around the concepts of truth,...

The Disturbing Story of the Birth of Jesus

    Every year at this season we need to ask afresh 'What is God saying to us as we again read  those familiar birth narratives in the gospels?'  Christians sometimes have fallen for the cultural interpretations of the story of the birth of Jesus. Picture this; the...

The God who Weaves Himself into the Fabric of the Universe

Richard Rohr in this 4 minute clip joyfully reflects on the pattern of the Trinity which is knitted into the essence of the universe. Have a listen before you read on. What I love about what he says, among other things, is that the very essence of God is woven into...

A prophet in the suburbs?

The other day I watched a program called The toughest place to be a... It's all about taking people out of their comfort zones in their current profession and placing them in the same job but in another country. The twist as the title implies is that the country in...
