God is Not Ignoring You

Story time:  It’s 10:09 am on a Friday morning, and we’re stuck in traffic. The meeting that we’re supposed to be at started nine minutes ago, and yet we’re still crawling over the busiest road in Cambridge, in bumper to bumper traffic. Now – I’m not a “morning person” at the best of times, and as…

He Loves Your Church Face.

I had a little chat with God at church this morning. Having youth work in my blood, I sit at the back of the hall, on some raised seating that looks over most of the congregation. I looked around during the final song in our time of sung worship, and cracked out a smile - it…

You Don’t Have To Do Anything.

I have a wise, old friend; currently rocking life on the other side of the world, but for some months he lived just around the corner from me, and played the role of friend-who-sorts-me-out-and-points-me-back-towards-Jesus-when-I'm-having-a-crisis - and he played it well. He reminds me of grace, and wakes faith up in me, and challenges me to keep…

Stepping Stones.

Created.

"After all the acts of faith which have ever been exercised in this world, perhaps there is none which is really more strong or which requires a higher confidence in the God, than the declaration that the universe has been brought into existence with a word" - Barnes Here are the beautiful first words that we…

Creativity.

Our God is a creative God – he created the world and everything in it. Our God is the God who made the sky that beautiful shade of blue on a sunny day; he made sunsets and rainbows. He dusted the top of the mountaintops with snow, he breathed the stars into creation and he loves…

Love Is…

Love Is... We can spend our whole lives looking for love. But, if we live knowing that we are loved by God, instead of living looking for God, it’s a much quicker search: God’s love is so free and available to us that we don’t need to do anything to get it. “Love is patient, love…
