Evidence for the resurrection
Shrt answers

And here's the video by Andy Bannister which Duncan showed emphasising that the resurrection is not fantasy, not 'nonsense' as the disciples first thought (Luke 24:11), but something which actually happened. 'Did Jesus really rise from the dead? The story of Jesus’ resurrection is central to Christianity but few people are aware that there are powerful historical reasons for believing in it.

Cracking eggs……
Thorntons eggs

Jonathan had fun with the children at the service this morning cracking open chocolate eggs with a hammer, and reflecting on today’s Bible passage, Luke 24: 1-12. The first one looked truly amazing – it called itself the ‘Marvellously Magnificent Humungous Chocolate Easter Egg’, and you would imagine that the chocolate egg would contain some further edible goodies. However, Jonathan and the children were disappointed. It was empty! This reminded

New beginnings

Someone quoted to me words from the old Christian classic The Cloud of Unknowing  yesterday: “For He can well be loved, but he cannot be thought.

The sun shines through grey clouds

As we were singing one of the songs this morning at Dores, Iain Todd touched me on the shoulder. ‘Look!’ he said, pointing at the trees, gaunt on the shoreline against a grey sky. I following his finger, and saw a brightness, and then the unmistakable presence of the sun. It was visible for less than a minute, but it was enough. Sometimes the Risen Jesus seems hidden in the grey mist of our struggles. And a times we will be granted glimpses of

This morning’s service at Dores Beach

This morning, a good number of us met on the beach at Dores to celebrate Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It was bitterly cold, and smirring with rain at times, but we gathered round the fire and led by Jonathan on guitar, sang some well-known songs. ‘He is Lord, he is risen from the dead and he is Lord’; ‘Because he lives, I can face tomorrow.’ ‘Amazing grace.’  Some of the young people contributed readings, and the Adam

Songs we sang in church this morning

Oh to see the dawn of the darkest day Jesus Christ is risen today See what a morning, gloriously bright I cast my mind to Calvary where Jesus bled and died for me This life I live is not my own for my Redeemer paid the price The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases Thine be the glory
