The Royal Wedding

I’m writing this a few days before the Royal Wedding.  On Friday the 29th of April, Prince William, second in line to the throne, will be united in holy matrimony with Miss Catherine Elizabeth Middleton, at least if everything goes according to plan.


The Fruit of the Spirit: Faithfullness

How rare it is to find a faithful Christian, one who can be relied on to tell the truth, to keep his promises, to pay his debts, to fulfil his responsibilities, to act consistently.   Yet faithfulness is God’s character, and a vital part of godliness.   How much do we desire it?


Self-denying, Cross-carrying (9:23)

Jesus said that everyone who wants to follow him must deny himself and take up the cross daily.   So why do so many Christians expect to have comfortable, easy lives?


The Fruit of the Spirit: Goodness

Goodness is a very general term.  We focus on one aspect of goodness – generosity.   We look at examples of generosity within a family, towards friends, among believers, towards strangers, and even towards enemies.  What motivates a Christian to be generous?   The generosity of God to us through Christ.


The Fruit of the Spirit: Kindness

The Holy Spirit produces kindness in believers.  But how do we define kindness?  Perhaps it’s more easily recognised than defined.  So we look at some examples of kindness from the Bible, and at Jesus, the supremely kind man.
