  • Palm Sunday- What Do We Expect?

    Contributed on Apr 5, 2001
    based on 115 ratings
     | 1,938 views

    A simple exploration of what Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem might have been like without the benefit of hindsight- and what this teaches us today.

    I remember as a small child really enjoying palm Sunday. At a small church in the middle of nowhere, I have this memory of being given a palm cross and being told to wave it about. Waving things about was what I was normally told NOT to do, so perhaps this is why it stuck in my mind. The other ...read more

  • Forgiveness- What Do We Carry And What Do We Let Go?

    Contributed on Apr 4, 2001

    Forgiveness is not about accepting that something wrong is somehow right, or trying to forget it: a prayerful reflection on Matthew 18.

    Today I would like to say a few words about things in our lives that we carry and things that we let go. I find today’s Gospel reading one of the most challenging in the Bible. With any apology, Jesus talks quite bluntly about the forgiveness God offers to us, and the expectation God has of us, ...read more

    How do we cope with our guilt feelings about things we can’t change in the world?

    I have recently been feeling a little guilty about failing to renew my membership of Amnesty International. This feeling particularly strikes when I hear in the news of some injustice somewhere in a far flung corner of the globe. I suppose that if I was still in amnesty, I would still ...read more

  • Prophesy- The Present Or The Future?

    Prophesy is less about strange words and more about speak God’s truth plainly to the present

    Prophesy- The present or the future? Over the past few months, I have had many people talk to me about the prophesies found in the bible, especially those given in the Revelation of John. The millennium has made it quite a popular topic of conversation, and for some people the idea of God’s ...read more

  • Hopes And Dreams At Christmas

    Contributed on Apr 4, 2001
    based on 53 ratings
     | 1,163 views

    We all need to treat our own dreams and the hopes of those around us with respect, because it is easier to crush someone’s hope than to be with them as they look towards a difficult future.

    Hopes and Dreams- Langdon Christmas Service (A Secure Forensic Hospital for patients with psychiatric and/or learning disabilities) Christmas is quite a strange time, full of contradictions. For many, it is a time of happiness and excitement- for others, a time carrying many sad memories. But ...read more
