What is the season of Advent is about? How should we respond, inamongst the busyness of this time of year?My sermon for Advent Sunday.
Does God learn? How does that fit in with our theology? What would it mean if he does? What does it mean if he doesn’t?
How do we see ourselves? Do we think that we are better than other people? Worse than them? Do we recognise our weaknesses and our strengths? Do we excuse our sins, or are we too harsh on ourselves? What about a more realistic reflection on what we are like?
What is the message of the book of Ecclesiastes? How should we understand it? It’s perhaps one of those books that we don’t spend much time reading or thinking about. However, it’s one of my favourites, so this is my sermon about it!
Books for Life is a new initiative to help encourage Christians to read more books. People are being encouraged to talk about 3 books which have changed their lives and why. This is my contribution!
What do we treasure? What regrets do we have? What difference does treasuring different things make? And in what way is the kingdom of God like hidden treasure?
What do the terrible events of this week, particularly the murder of MP Jo Cox, tell us about the state of our politics? How should we, as Christians, respond? How should we approach the forthcoming EU referendum?
