Christians Ought Always to Pray

It has not been a terribly good week for me. I’ve not been feeling too well, which often gets me down and the worst of that is that I was unable to go to church today which is always a source of comfort. Add to that the seemingly endless depressing headlines and it makes for … Continue reading

Words Matter!

I’ve been thinking a lot about words lately, for about two weeks in fact, since a friend of mine started blogging a word for the day (see reblog above). Her word for today, makes me think about how words are used and the consequences of words which often lead to action. What with the liberal … Continue reading

Charles Colson – A Life Less Ordinary

We all strive to live an extraordinary life.  Christian or not, we all want to have a legacy that challenges, inspires and awes people long after we are dead. People often find extraordinary ways to achieve this with mixed results. As a Christian, I find inspiration from the extraordinary lives of Biblical characters and it … Continue reading

Mayoral Hustings at St James’ Piccadilly

It was a dreary, wet evening as I walked through the streets of London to St James’ in Piccadilly.  You know the type portrayed in Hollywood movies, wet, grey, everyone hurrying to their destination under an umbrella, so it’s impossible to make eye contact with anyone even if you wanted to. Even though it was a … Continue reading

What is Success Anyway?….

One thing that challenges me constantly as a Christian is living in a world that measures success materially.  Regardless of how sophisticated, spiritual or ’emotionally intelligent’ we are, we are all impressed by material success.  I don’t just mean money, although that of course is the obvious, I mean a tangible way in which we … Continue reading

Mayoral Election – A Voter’s Perspective

Although last week, while I was leafing through the Evening Standard, I came across a story that was at once comical and infuriating!  It was widely reported last … Continue reading

The Resurrection of Christ – What Does it Mean?

This Easter has been very inspiring for me. It brings optimism, new beginnings, community, love, friendship and creativity. I know this seems anachronistic in this commercialised era we live in, but the fact is spiritually and materially, Easter means new life. It should be obvious since, resurrection means defeating death.  Christ’s resurrection means victory over … Continue reading

Black Singer Tops UK Classical Charts

I was browsing through my twitter feed the other day when I suddenly spotted a retweet from the Royal Opera House (Yes, I follow them as I love opera and all things classical, I’m out of the closet!). The retweet was from an up and coming black tenor announcing that his debut album, Noah, had … Continue reading

A Fool Says There is No God!

It’s April fool’s day, so wouldn’t it be funny if the practical joke in eternity is that  Heaven and Hell and does exist and there is a God who sent His son Jesus Christ to die for humanity, rise on the third day so that we can be reconciled to God? In the last couple … Continue reading
