Unity in diversity

Unity/Unity in diversity

We have all heard the stories of division and partisanship in our culture at present. We hear them in the news, in our neighbourhoods, even in our churches.

Should Christians do yoga?

Discipleship/Should Christians do yoga?

Ever since yoga hit the western world's fitness scene in the early 2000s, much of the UK has been hooked on the spiritual, mental and physical discipline that originated in India around the fifth century BC.

The unchanging God in the changing seasons

Discipleship/The unchanging God in the changing seasons

That’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…

But it's not fair

Discipleship/But it's not fair

Life, 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…

The church and women (’s football)

Church/The church and women (’s football)

Sure, 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…

Church/Our God is on His throne amid the Brexit chaos

In 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.

Pressing into God’s calling

Discipleship/Pressing into God’s calling

I’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…

Christmas: Emmanuel, God is with us, changes everything

Discipleship/Christmas: Emmanuel, God is with us, changes everything

God 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.…

Praying for my family, the persecuted church

Prayer/Praying for my family, the persecuted church

In 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…

One People Commission fifth birthday: a song of unity

Unity/One People Commission fifth birthday: a song of unity

Why 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…
