Children of God, living in the ‘now’: reflection by John on yesterday’s sermon
John Down town 2

In his sermon yesterday, Duncan was talking about the immensity of Jesus: the Christ, the creator of all things, was present in Jesus, and Duncan challenged us to face the consequences of this:  to say ‘Yes!’ to Jesus, moment by moment; to communicate Jesus effectively in a changing culture; and to seek to express grace and truth in our daily lives. Perhaps some of us listen to this kind of sermon, and say ‘Yes!’  That’s what I want to

Saying ‘Yes!’ to Jesus in a new decade: Duncan’s sermon on John 1:1-18

‘It’s an amazing gospel passage,’ Duncan exclaimed at the start of his sermon on Sunday, a sermon for the start of a new year, and a new decade.  He was preaching on John 1:1-18. The passing of another year, and another decade reminds us that life is dynamic and changing in both positive and negative ways.

Reality check: Jesus the refugee
Flight into Egypt

A reflection from John on Phil's sermon this morning: Today’s Bible reading is a reality check, Phil told us. Matthew 2:13-23 describes how, so afraid of losing his position and status following what he’d heard from the Wise Men about the birth of a king, King Herod ordered the killing of all boys in Bethehem and its vicinity who were under two years of age, and this slaughter was carried out. Joseph, however, had been warned in a dream, and

Flight into Egypt

Matthew 2:13-23 The escape to Egypt 13 When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. ‘Get up,’ he said, ‘take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.’ 14 So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, 15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said

This morning’s all-age service

A lovely nativity service this morning. It was ably co-ordinated by Phil, and the children and young people led us in prayer and in meditation on the opening lines of a number of carols; shared a dance routine to the Rend Collective song My Lighthouse interpreting in movement the song's meaning and message; and performed a nativity play with a difference. And we sang lots of familiar carols. Thanks to everyone involved, a happy Christmas to everyone

Becoming poorer that others might be richer: personal thoughts from John
John on Harris

Just thinking about this verse this afternoon.  ‘For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich.’ (2 Corinthians 8:9)  The point is that the Christ gave up his glory to come to us in the person of Jesus to immeasurably enrich our lives in his teaching and his death and resurrection. But as followers of Jesus, seeking to model the Jesus
