The Heavens declare the Glory of God

As I fell asleep on the sofa on Friday night, my husband texted me pictures of the sky lit up with the most glorious colours. After a bit of deliberation, I jumped off the sofa, dragged my son and dog out of the house, and went to join him. We drove to a nearby forest and spent over an hour wondering at colours. Over the course of that time, we even saw reds and greens visible to the naked eye. We saw ribbons of what could have been cloud as they moved across the sky, but when we lifted our phones to take a picture, vivid hues of pink, purple and green appeared. It was one of the most magica ..read more

Using our eyes

I recently had an eye test, and am now wearing new glasses as a result of that. Being able to see properly is something we take for granted these days, thanks to the ease of being able to correct vision problems. And yet, there are still people who suffer from blindness, just as they did during the time of Jesus. Some of the miracles Jesus did involved curing people of physical problems they had, including blindness, such as this example: Some people brought a blind man to him [Jesus] and begged him to touch him. He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and when he h ..read more

Living on the Edge

The other week, I found myself drawn into daytime TV (which isn’t a regular occurrence these days). I was folding some laundry and it just gave me something to occupy my mind whilst engaged in a mundane, everyday task. In particular, I found myself drawn to a game show called The Edge. I quite like a quiz so I stopped flicking through the channels and stuck with it. For those who don’t know and/or don’t have access to BBC programming, it is a quiz which combines general knowledge, and bowling. Each contestant is seeking to gain the advantage over their fellow competitors by answering more que ..read more

Why read the Bible (2)?
Glasgow South Christadelphians
by Elizabeth Robin

The first part of this article Why read the Bible (1)? explained how more modern versions of the Bible use words and phrases which are recognisable and easier to follow, and hence help readers better understand it. However, another reason why people may not wish to read the Bible is because they think its message is out of date for life in the 21st century.  For example, what does it have to say about inequality between the rich and the poor?  In fact, there is a constant message in the Bible that people should look after orphans and widows and the less-well-off in general.  It ..read more

How to show love

I recently went to our local cinema to see the film ‘One Life’. It tells the remarkable story of Sir Nicholas Winton. He was a man working in London who was instrumental in saving the lives of over 600 predominantly Jewish children from Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia. What struck me most about watching the film was that ‘Nicky’ was just an ordinary man who saw a desperate need and decided to do something about it. Nicky could not bear to see the suffering of all these children, knowing that at home, British children were being taken to safety in the countryside. I struggle with the concept of ..read more

The joy which Christ has won for us

I started writing this on 29 March 2024 which was Good Friday; but what does that mean? Some people will make a connection with the Christian religion, and those who do will then say what is it that’s so good about it? Given that it is the day when people throughout the world acknowledge Jesus’ savagely violent death, to say that this is good would be pretty awful! The lead-up to Christ’s death would prove testing in a number of different ways. Jesus knew that it was in his purpose to die – indeed he told this to people around him (John 3:14, John 8:28). And when that terrible time drew near ..read more

Faith and doubt

During Easter we so often focus on the main stories surrounding the terrible death and then the wonderful resurrection of Jesus. But there are other stories linked in with it which can be so helpful to us. One of these is the story of Thomas, and it begins not long after Jesus had been resurrected. Jesus appeared miraculously to his disciples when they were in a locked room, showing them the marks in his hands and his side to prove it was really him. But then we read about Thomas: But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciple ..read more
