Godincidence strikes again

OK – I’m a slacker. I have been terrible in recent years at writing.  I’m now licensed, and am gradually picking myself up and starting to dedicate a chunk of time each day to sitting down and writing.  And today is Day One. I was not surprised at the election of President-elect Donald Trump in…

Half a mile a day…..

A good starting point in any blog is to let folks know where the blog name came from. When I decided to write this blog. I’m not really one of the world’s great theologians – and even now after training I doubt I will be!  I wanted to come up with something that tried to…

Mothered by God

Mothering Sunday, 15th March, 2015 Mothering Sunday is a tough day to preach on. We celebrate motherhood, and whilst my mother died some years ago she was a great mum, and I’ve been blessed by having a fine mother in law. Whilst I have no children, I’ve been lucky enough to be involved in the…

Being called to speak the Word of God

January 25th, 2015 – Conversion of Paul Both of tonight’s readings describe the calling of men to speak the word of God – a calling that God makes in two VERY different ways. For Saul, it’s a sudden calling of breath-taking drama – Jesus appears to him, he is blinded for three days, doesn’t eat…

Working through unbelievers – Isaiah 45:1-7

October 19th, 2014 In room 52 of the British Museum there is a barrel-shaped clay cylinder, dated around 538BC, about 9” long and 3” in diameter at it’s widest point – looking at pictures of it I’m reminded of a corn on the cob…. This is the Cyrus Cylinder, and there is a copy of…

Feeding miracles – Matthew 14:13-21

August 3rd, 2014 When I was a teenager, I’m afraid to admit that I was an agnostic.  I guess these days I’d be called ‘spiritual but not religious’. I would hear of Jesus’s miracles and then, with the absolute certainty and fullness of knowledge that only a 14 year old boy can have I would…
