What was the Fall? Why is it something that we should think about? What relevance does it still has as part of a Christian understanding of the world?
During his inaugural address President Trump stated that “we are protected by God”. But, is that true? What does it mean?
We don’t think about hell enough! And that is damaging our understanding of humanity and Christianity. That’s the challenge that I encountered last week, and now it’s Advent Sunday, which is traditionally a time of preparation for Christmas, with a focus on the Four Last Things: death, judgement, heaven, and hell.
The Lord’s Prayer is a vital part of our faith, which is used regularly in public and personal worship. But, how often do we think about what it means? What does it mean when we refer to God as ‘our Father’?
