Tonight, I gave a 'meditation' on violence at our Community Carol service. Have you ever pondered just how much human violence is woven into the Christmas story - and what God's response to human violence is? To read tonight's meditation, please click here.

There's a new trend in biblical translation - to rename 'John the Baptist' as 'John the Baptiser'. What's this about? Who was John - and why didn't he become one of Jesus' disciples? Fascinating questions, I think - and the themes of today's sermon, which can be found by clicking HERE.

What's the Second Coming all about? Why does Jesus say that 'this generation will not pass away' until he has returned in glory and power in the clouds? Ever thought of the church as a 'Love Factory'? To muse on these and other issues, please click here to read today's sermon.

"Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's - and to God that which is God's" - or so the King James translation of the Bible more or less reports Jesus' words in today's gospel. It this a cry for the separation of church and state? I argue in today's sermon that it is anything but. To read the sermon, please click here.

Here is a link to yesterday's sermon on the topic of healing. We are about to re-introduce regular opportunities for healing prayer at our Sunday services (first and third Sundays). In the light of the tragic story of baby Charlie Gard, I didn't see how one could just ignore such awfulness, while talking about God's healing. To read the sermon, please click here.
