Missiological Reflection

This seems like so long ago that I spent a little over a month with a church in Tokyo, but my missiological reflection on the experience has been published, and is now available here.

Is this the end of the line...is it time? They say it doesn’t have to be this way... Here lies a moment to pause, to think and reflect as I try to work out whether it is a full stop or semi-colon moment - is this the end of the line...is it time? I’m not... Continue Reading →

Balance

The visibility of 'Church' I've read and watched with interest as so many have grappled with, or tried to make sense of, this season of lockdown, where we are absent from our churches. I've very much felt the presence of pray-ers in the walls in some churches, and have loved the sense of God's presence... Continue Reading →

Over the last few weeks we’ve been video-calling those we love, sharing coffee together as well as laughing and crying about the highs and lows of lock-down. This gathering, or drawing together as community, as family... Continue Reading →

Fire gazing…

This evening I’ve been fire-gazing...in my view one of the most ancient forms of prayer! I invite you to get lost in your own thoughts with God our Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer at your side as you gaze into a fire, sit with a cup of tea or just watch the sun goes down.... Glory...

#Grateful…

Grateful for tea! For some reason today has been difficult...I feel like I'm really struggling with aspects of the lockdown, and trying to work as normal. I think this is inevitable, it perhaps just hit me later than it has others. I also think that's what prayer is about; owning how we feel in this... Continue Reading →

My nature and my name…

"Give me a candle of the Spirit, O God, as I go down into the deeps of my being. Show me the hidden things, the creatures of my dreams, the storehouse of forgotten memories and hurts. Take me down to the spring of my life, and tell me my nature and my name. Give me... Continue Reading →
