I’ve just started reading through the book of Exodus in my quiet times. In the grand total of 22 verses I have read so far, one thing has been crystal clear to me: This is not a children’s story. But don’t we often treat it like it is? Poor Israel in a bit of a More

Saffires

Saffires celebration talk One year ago, Sarah and I were just two women with an armful of policies we’d spent 18 months preparing and a calling from God to take the good news about Jesus to the women of Leicester’s sex industry. We had no idea what to expect, how we’d be received, or even More


10 Commandments: ONE no other gods

What is an idol? As we looked at the first of the Ten Commandments yesterday we talked about how idols can so easily take the place of God in our hearts. So we look to them for help or blessing, something we live for or follow, depend or rely on. That means it is not More


Honour

I’ve been thinking today about a story in the bible (Mark 5:21-43 if you were interested). Jesus has been approached by Jairus – a religious leader, a V.I.P. Why? Because Jairus’ daughter is sick. In fact she’s dying. It’s a heartbreaking story. And Jesus is moved. So he goes with Jairus to heal her daughter. More

The care system, the church, and the call to arms

I am lamenting the passing of romance in our house. We have been married 13 years now; so no more need for gushing cards with sentimental thoughts, a dozen red roses, candlelit meals. Plus, we now have two kids in the house, and two cats, so practically speaking, it’s hard to pursue any idea of More


How will it all end?

On Sunday, we will come to the end of our series on Revelation that started last autumn.  I wonder how you’ve found looking at the last book of the Bible? It can be confusing at times so we’ve tried to take big chunks to get the big picture and not get lost.     There More
