Monthly Reflections

  • gift Don’t stop there..  Keep on going!!

    May 2016

    Birthdays are significant milestones… loved by some, dreaded by others!  The church also celebrates its birthday at Pentecost.  It’s a bit of a movable feast, following on 50 days after Easter Sunday but it marks the ‘official’ birth of the church.  Acts 2: 1- 4: When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one […]

    what-next What next?

    April 2016

    Lent courses..  shelved.  Hot cross buns.. eaten.  Sunrise services.. celebrated.  Easter egg hunts.. over.   Fasting to feasting.. enjoyed. The highs and lows of journeying through Holy Week were memorable, topped by surround-sound messages echoing the themes of life from death, hope from despair, light from darkness, joy from sadness.  Resurrection-magnified sermons inspired and challenged..

    courage Can these bones live? Ezekiel 37:3

    February 2016

    God asks Ezekiel a leading question, ‘…can these bones live?’  And as Ezekiel surveys a valley of dried out bones, the obvious response is, ‘Lord, is this a trick question?’  For the natural answer was surely ‘No!’  However, Ezekiel’s reply, ‘Sovereign Lord, you alone know.’, is telling, for it suggests, that something in his situation required […]

  • where-are-you-going Where have you come from, and where are you going? Genesis 16:7 – 8

    January 2016

    It’s that time of year again! Determined resolutions will be made for the year ahead.. more exercise, more pause times, less T.V., less alcohol! However, within a few days, we will begin to realise how over-optimistic and even how undisciplined we are in keeping to our own plans! Feelings of disappointment and failure begin to […]

    Preparation, expectation, longing…  Hope.  Peace.  Joy.  Love.  These profound sentiments and holy themes guide my reflections and journey through this Advent season.

    Unlike any of the questions explored so far, this question is presented to three very different individuals, at very different times in Biblical history: Amos a mid-8th century BC herdsman from Judah who moved north to Israel, Jeremiah, a priest from Judah who eventually had to flee to Egypt between the 6th and 7th century […]

What you’re saying
