#45 If you knew what you would find along your journey, would you still go? Jesus said, ‘See, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death; then they will hand him over to the... Continue Reading →

#44 #home and #comfort are perhaps things that we have come to take for granted in some parts of the world. Yesterday was a bit of a chilly day and I spent much of the day on the sofa reading. I felt comfortable, safe and secure, as I pray many of us do at home.... Continue Reading →

#42 #gandhi led a salt march as part of a larger protest campaign against British rule in India in 1930. The British government were making huge amounts of money through salt “production” and yet it was there for all to take. Gandhi recognised that people need salt: to season, to cleanse and heal and to... Continue Reading →

#41 If someone came round for a cup of tea, would you get out your best china? If you wouldn’t, why wouldn’t you? Would it depend on who it was? Or how important they might be to you?

#37 Jesus told anyone who wanted to become a follower to “Take up their #cross and follow me”…what cross?? Swimming today I was struck by how prolific crosses are, to the point of marking the spot where a swimmer tumble turns in the pool…aim for that and all will be well! The cross is used...

#36 #seeingclearly - our eyes do not see what is in front of us, and sometimes we stop ourselves from seeing what we do not want to see. Sometimes we do not give ourselves space and time to see beauty around us, love for us or justice/injustice next to us. What are you not seeing... Continue Reading →

#35 Religious or not, I think a lot of people look for a sign for whether something is right or not. Sometimes these are obvious, and sometimes more obscure. In Jesus’ time the pharisees wanted a sign from heaven #mark8v11to21 Today some people still want to #seetobelieve and it seems more natural not to trust... Continue Reading →
