How do you find peace in a broken world?
How do you respond to surprises?
How are your worry levels? It seems like there is a lot to be worried about right now. Our political systems seem confused and toxic. Boris found his ditch and Rees seems to be eating his words.
We all see the world in different ways and we all encounter God in different ways. For me I see the handy work of God all over creation. I can’t help but look at something natural and be filled with wonder at the maker.
Over this last week it's been hot! Here are five simple things to help you keep your faith burning hot this summer.
Summer on the rec was a wonderful community gathering hosted by the churches in Weston and Newbridge. Massive thanks to all who made it happen
The fragrance of freshly cooked bread is so compelling that supermarkets often pump the smell over the entrance. It makes us hungry for more.
Sometimes, everywhere you go all you can see are purple flowers.
In the Easter story we find Jesus on the wrong form of transport. Kings don't ride donkeys.
It was a cold wet day. Not the kind of day that anyone would want to get out of the house unless they really had to.
I sat beside the goldfish tank in our London flat and prayed. The Gold Fish had just died and I thought this was a good opportunity to practise raising the dead. A few hours later the still dead fish was flushed away.
Looking into a Christian community from the outside can leave people feeling a little confused. Christians can sometimes come across as overly optimistic, and even sometimes annoyingly full of peace.
We don’t get much post these days. But that morning in the middle of last year was different. A small envelope dropped on the mat. Thick textured paper - proper posh!
As I write this the draft proposals are on the table. In a few weeks, we could be moving forward towards Brexit or even getting ready for a general election.
The vision is simple and purposeful. To be a church on the way. We get there one step at a time.
Have you ever had one a time when it seems like more is going wrong than right? Or when things are changing too fast, or when you get news that you did not want to hear?
Great start to the new term with a fantastic church family and a wonderful team.
“Slow. If there is dust behind you, you’re going too fast” This is the sign that is often out during the summer at my favour campsite.
Every Friday Love Weston Cafe is open to the community for coffee, cakes and lunches. This week I had the opportunity to visit.
Over this term we are thinking about growing community. As part of that I would like you to start thinking about something. How do you grow?
