Jesus in an Hour.

Friday 15 January 

Who are you Jesus? 

Well, Epiphany is a season when we are shown glimpses of Jesus and told to work out, ‘do the maths’, as it were!

For a fullest glimpse read Marks’s Gospel in one sitting, it only takes an hour. Mark wrote with immediacy and seems to want to ‘get the story out there’.

After the hour what will your answer be?

Water has something about life. All the symbolism of washing, cleansing and rising from the depths.

Wine has the richness beyond water. If you like something of the extra mile.

What did the first disciples glimpse on this couple’s celebration.

What glimpse of God’s wine moments in your life will you recognise today ?

Four Calling Birds

Sunday 28th December 2014


The Four Calling Birds represent The Four Gospels of St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke, and St. John, which proclaim the Good News of God’s reconciliation of the world to Himself in Jesus Christ.

I wonder what books are in your top ten favourites? And what are the themes and story-lines that hold you? What to you take from that book that relates to you directly?

Scripture is a gathering of books. The Old Testament gives an account of God’s relationship with humanity and specifically the people of Israel. The New Testament tells of our connection with God through Jesus and the working out of that connection through the letters and documents of the early church. But the Gospels, they call to us directly.

The bible is not a book to beat other people or yourself with, but to guide and inform. Scripture should be an Inspiration and guide; to be used and read.
