LINGERING LEGACIES

So, the World Cup is fun (ever noticed that people become overnight football pundits?). But this time two years ago, the eyes of the world were on London for the Olympics and the word on everyone’s lips was ‘legacy.’ Would these Olympic Games make Britain greater? Would they

Ob-stuck-less?

Ob-stuck-less?

Running a marathon is just too easy these days – right? Yeah, we thought so, too. Alongside the more traditional road races, a new breed of adrenaline-pumping running challenges are springing up all over the world. There’s even one called the ‘Spartan Race’. As well as a ...

Eyes wide open

Eyes wide open

Sometimes, when we’re too busy stumbling through staring at screens, updating our statuses, consuming what’s in front of us – we miss something greater. God is willing to teach us more about Himself, and to give us amazing opportunities. But it isn’t enough just to ‘get by’ ...

Wait!

Wait!

What exactly is our part in waiting? Do you wait until God arranges the clouds in the sky to spell ‘NOW’? Do you take the initiative and expect God to bless your efforts? Put yourself in Abraham’s shoes. He’d been waiting ten years for the promise made to him – to become ‘a ...

Our final day exploring the parable of the prodigal (Luke 15) is all about the mud, and what happens when we make wrong habits, and how to deal with them when we come to our senses. Jesus was being provocative when he placed his lead character in a pig pen. To the Jewish ...

IT STARTS WITH A FUNERAL…

IT STARTS WITH A FUNERAL…

Ever eaten your cake before your birthday or sneakily opened a Christmas present the day before? Well, how about having a funeral for someone before they’ve died…? In Jesus’ story of the Prodigal Son, the anti-hero of the story asked for his dad’s inheritance while his dad ...

Faith Boost

Faith Boost

Catalysts make things happen. Alka-Seltzer without water has no fizz, flour without yeast produces no bread. Faith is the catalyst in your life. Without it, religion is dry. Talking about the Israelites, Paul said, ‘When the good news of deliverance … came to them … the ...

ROOT AND FRUIT

ROOT AND FRUIT

There’s an old saying, ‘If you were accused of being a Christian, would anyone find enough evidence to convict you?’ Hmm. What evidence would they find? Maybe they’d find your Spotify playlist replete with the best of Hillsong. A ‘WWJD’ bracelet tucked away in your drawer. ...
