God, the heart of our unity and mission

8 July 2020I have been heartened and encouraged by the steps that I, as membership team leader at the Evangelical Alliance, have seen or heard our members – churches, organisations and individuals alike – take in order to serve communities and the body of Christ. Permit me to spotlight a couple of these acts of Christ-centered kindness, and in so doing give thanks to our God for making possible all that the UK church is doing during this time. This week it was revealed that Stewardship was able to raise…

Christ's teachings – a sure foundation

13 February 2020As I watched the news, following the trail of destruction left by Storm Ciara, I saw an awful and heart-wrenching video of a guest house in Hawick, a victim to flooding, as part of the building slid into the racing river below. I could not help but remember the parable of the two men who built their house – one on sand and the other on rock. The “foolish man” did not hear the words of Jesus, nor did he put them into practice, and so he built his house on sand. Subsequently, “the rain came down,…

God’s greatest rescue plan

29 August 2019The girls, Isla and Eilidh, were on the beach when they heard the toddler crying and saw the man, who had his son on his shoulders, in trouble. The older girl swam out to them on her lilo and helped them to shore, while the younger one went back to get her phone. In life, some dangers are so clear and apparent that you cannot miss them. And yet, some dangers are unnoticeable and easy to forget, especially when everything seems fine. As Christians we can often see our friends having a good…

Creation care: being good stewards of God’s gift

20 June 2019The photo of Greenland’s melting ice has hit headlines. The pack of dogs were seemingly walking on water as their usual frozen paths are now covered in a layer of melting ice. This is a result of Greenland experiencing unusually high temperatures for this time of year, which could have a lasting impact on the local community, and the rising ocean levels. Many may have also seen the new plans for Heathrow’s third runway, which has brought with it questions on how this will impact the…

Good news in a bad news world

21 March 2019The news portrays our world in a never-ending cycle of unrelenting pain and misery. Well, so it seems to me. Though, perhaps for others, it’s a season of great challenge. Or, maybe this is, for some, just simply how the world is – sometimes bad things happen and sometimes they don’t. Whatever your perspective, thank God, that we as Christians know that this is not the only, or final, narrative. In the continuous repertoire of bad news, we have the ultimate good news. Yes, horrible and bad…

Book review: The Girl De-Construction Project

7 January 2019I’m sure many Christian women would agree that, as we strive to grow in our faith, we encounter internal and external challenges that, if we’re not careful, could hold us back – body image and identity are just a couple. So, I find it such an encouragement to have a book written by a woman who has been in the midst of ‘girl issues’ and, by the grace of God, is no longer there. The author, Rachel Gardner, understands the pull of the secular world, our conflicts, struggles, heart-aches and…

Indonesia: are we the answer to our prayers?

5 October 2018On 28 September a tsunami, triggered by a magnitude 7.5 earthquake, hit Indonesia’s Central Sulawesi province. Thousands of homes were destroyed and hospitals, hotels and shopping centres collapsed. The death count, which is already more than 1,400, is likely to rise, and at least 800 people have been seriously injured. This catastrophic event comes less than two months after an earthquake struck Lombok (another island in Indonesia), which killed nearly 100 people and left at least 20,000…

Welcome the stranger as if they’re royalty

12 July 2018In the midst of this grand reception of Prince William, the Jordan government announced that it would not take in any more refugees. While it must be remembered that the Jordanian government's limits on refugees are an understandable responsibility of the state, as there are already more than 630,000 refugees sojourning in Jordan, and Prince William himself remarked that "the way in which you opened your doors to hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria, not to mention your longstanding…
