LENT GROUP WEEK 3 - 6.3.18

Orphaned in 2002 when he was 12 years old, he had been abandoned by his two elder brothers and left with his four siblings. At that time, Jude was in the same dire sit...

LENT GROUP WEEK 2 - 27.2.18

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN 3sjPSaG4E34 Matthew 13:44 The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. This week's reflection is from Debbie Pow, Chaplain to Send a Cow. It can be read here . Debb...

ASH WEDNESDAY

Ash Wednesday marks the start of observation of Lent the most solemn time of the Christian Year. Ashes are an ancient sign of penitence: from the Middle Ages it became the custom to begin Lent by marking Christians with the sign of the cross in ash on their foreheads. The season is traditionally ma...

Chaplaincy

Hi Ernest As you may recall, I worked in prison chaplaincy with young offenders and adult males before I was ordained. I was a licensed lay Reader and also a licensed Lay Chaplain in the adult prison. The role of chaplaincy was twofold - to enable practising members of a faith group to continue to o...

Delayed Grief

It struck me that we talk about 'going through' certain experiences, and grief is one of them. So what you're experiencing is probably necessary, so you can absorb the loss, but it may not be quick. It can hit at odd times - I remember a few years after my father's death, I was driving somewhere, an...

Delayed Grief

It's a good idea to call on support from others as you're doing. Family splits and arguments around the time of a funeral are, unfortunately, not uncommon. I've taken funerals where there have been family arguments, with the result that relatives have been told not to attend, or even not informed of...

Delayed Grief

My experience of grief is that it has, at some point, demanded my full attention. There's a period of busy-ness around a death and a funeral, when there are lots of distractions to do with admin and organisation, and it's easy to think that when the funeral is over, the grieving has been done. But t...

Christians on the Internet and Social Media

I was reading an article recently about how the new place for Evangelism for many Christians in the West was via the internet and social media. It quoted the "hidden' rump of Christians whose whole experience of Christian fellowship was via their computer screen and keyboard. I think theses article...

Was Jesus Political

Welcome, Louise! :welcome: :dog: Jesus WAS political. Jesus WAS concerned about economics. Jesus DID address those with political power. Jesus WAS concerned about "this world". Jesus DID see sin in material as well as "spiritua"l terms. Jesus DID come to do more than just die. I can agree with all t...
