Time with God

Time with God

Do you remember the resolutions you made at this time last year? I would guess that many of us resolved at the beginning of 2015 that every day we would have a “quiet time”. We told ourselves that this would be the year when we at last would establish a pattern of daily Bible-reading and prayer.

Christian Doctrine

Christian Doctrine

We’ve just reached the end of a long series of sermons on Christian doctrine.

It was in January 2006 that we began the ‘Truths for Today’ series.  For more than three years we’ve been working systematically through the great truths of the Christian faith.  It’s done me good.  I’ve had to grapple with issues I wouldn’t have chosen to tackle.  I’ve had to go back to the Bible and ask myself exactly what I believe and why.  I hope it’s …

Family worship

Family worship

Many thanks to all who have helped us cope with the demands of the last few weeks. I’m especially grateful for the men who stood in to take meetings while I was on ‘paternity leave’. But so many folk have shown us kindness in other ways. Thank you to those who offered to look after Jesse and John at different times, those who brought round meals for us, those who phoned, visited, e-mailed us. And thank you for all the cards, flowers, gifts that you’ve showered on the …
