Do not be afraid

5 September 2019Then, as a colleague followed me into the room and was treated to the same greeting, I realised that there was nothing special about me on this particular Wednesday morning, just that the Evangelical Alliance team was feeling full of life, warmth and enthusiasm, and wanted to share the love with newly arriving colleagues. Let me be clear: we like each other here at the Evangelical Alliance, but this isn’t normal behaviour. Mostly, first thing in the morning, we just greet each other with tired…

But it's not fair

29 August 2019Life, in contrast to God’s character, can often be unjust. We have all been hurt by people – sometimes intentionally, sometimes accidentally. We have all been treated in a way which is unkind, unfair, disrespectful. We have all been disillusioned, with a job, a relationship, a leader or ourselves. All of us have experienced disappointment or upset at the hands of other people, and likewise we, too, have inflicted pain, hurt and upset on people we care about and strangers alike. Some of us will…

Love food, love Jesus, love Simply Eat

1 July 2019Do you love to eat?Do you love to talk about Jesus?Have you ever tried doing both at the same time?No? Maybe now’s the time to start. If you’re anything like me, you’re really happy to sit down and enjoy a good meal. And you’re really happy to talk about your favourite things while you do. And one of my favourite things is Jesus. But, actually, I’m not great at being intentional about combining my love for Jesus and my love for food. Which is why Simply Eat is such a dream… Simply Eat is an…

The church and women (’s football)

27 June 2019Sure, a few early adopters may have been watching the Lionesses for years, following the ins and outs of the women’s league with the same dedication as the millions who follow men’s football. At a guess, a good number of readers are in the same boat as me. Watching the England ladies play up a storm in France this week has been a relatively new experience for me, piquing the curiosity of vaguely watching from afar over the last few years. But this year is different. While England footballer…

Our God is on His throne amid the Brexit chaos

28 March 2019In the days leading up to the release of this article – from when I started writing this to when you’re reading it, we could have a new (tentative) date to exit the EU, a new prime minister, a new front bench, a new lead Brexiteer, or a new bunch of staunch Remainers. So, whatever the situation is at this precise moment, I know only one thing: God is on His throne. Actually, it’s not true to say that I only know one thing. I know one other thing: we, the followers of Jesus who make up the…

Pressing into God’s calling

3 January 2019I’m just not very target-orientated. So new year’s resolutions are always a bit hit and miss for me. Last week I read back on my end-of-year reflection from 2017 and it turned out that I’d committed myself to some faith-related goals which I had promptly forgotten about. I did manage to get all the way to mid-March before my attempt to read the Bible in a year fell by the wayside – something I am picking up again (from where I left off!) this year. We’ll see how that goes. Maybe you’re more…

Christmas: Emmanuel, God is with us, changes everything

3 December 2018God being with us has changed everything. At Christmas, we remember that God doesn’t watch us from the sidelines with His fingers crossed, hoping we’ll sort it out before it’s too late. At Christmas, we remember that God saw us, a broken mess of humankind, and decided to do something about it. It’s only been in the last couple of years that I’ve realised that, for those of us in the northern hemisphere at least, we celebrate Christmas at the darkest time of the year. Imagine with me a…

Praying for my family, the persecuted church

15 November 2018In prison. At work. In families. So many of those who have chosen to follow Jesus have chosen to do so at the cost of something else – community. Whether they love Jesus in secret because they are aware of the potential retribution of family and neighbours who are against their conversion, or whether their faith is so well-known that they have been imprisoned in solitary confinement, many members of our Christian family experience extreme isolation. For me, as a person, like us all, who has…

One People Commission fifth birthday: a song of unity

23 October 2018Why have you decided to get involved with the One People Commission celebration? I very much believe that the church at large should be aiming to come together as one body, worshipping God together, growing together and winning souls to the kingdom together. This necessarily includes embracing different ethnicities, denominations, expressions of worship, and cultures. Anything that genuinely celebrates and promotes this will always get my support one way or another, even if simply through…

IDOP: Persecuted Christians around the world need our prayers

15 October 2018Around the world there are more than 200 million Christians in the top 50 countries where it is most difficult to be a Christian, according to the Open Doors’ World Watch List. Countries including North Korea and Afghanistan, who are in positions one and two on the list, respectively, continue to see high levels of persecution, while in other countries, where the political atmosphere is volatile, the threat of discrimination and abuse is growing. So, this year it is as important as ever for…

The unchanging God in the changing seasons

7 September 2018That’s right – a mere three hours after I bounded into the office, full of enthusiasm about a new end-of-summer, early autumn season, I was over it. To be fair, the last week had been pretty busy, as I was part of the team behind the newly launched Evangelical Alliance website. (If you haven’t checked it out yet, you definitely should; it’s really good, in my completely unbiased opinion.) So, I wasn’t feeling as fresh as I might have been, but even in the midst of being busy, a new season or…
