“‘The sauce is on the middle shelf of the fridge’, so says my wife, but for the life me, I can’t see it. My wife goes to the fridge and finds the sauce immediately. Is it a man thing, an age thing or just a human thing? Recently, I have been working on Luke 7:36-50, Jesus, Simon the Pharisee and the sinful woman. I went through the whole process of sermon preparation and wrote out the sermon manuscript, but I knew I had not cracked the passage. I preached the sermon to my preaching club and knew it still was not right, so did they. I prayed over it, I read and reread the passage, there was so ..read more

From The Church of England Evangelical Council: The meeting of the General Synod of the Church of England concluded on Tuesday. Commenting on the debate on the Living in Love and Faith (LLF) process, Revd Canon John Dunnett, National Director, Church of England Evangelical Council, CEEC, said: “The decision taken by General Synod to move to next business [before the end of the debate] is demonstrative of widespread dissatisfaction with how the bishops have been progressing the LLF process. The one thing that Synod could largely agree on was that neither side could support the proposals that w ..read more

Living in Love and Faith: what now for those who cannot ‘agree to disagree’?
Anglican Church League
by Anglican_Church_League
2d ago
“Yesterday the Bishop of Leicester, Martyn Snow, tried to reset the ongoing Living in Love and Faith (LLF) debate, asking the General Synod of the Church of England ‘to be reconciled with God and show this by being reconciled to one another’. He talked of the missionary imperative of the Church finding a way to ‘agree to disagree’ and pleaded for Synod to avoid “a series of speeches simply saying, ‘Synod needs to agree with me’, or others just need to change their mind”. But the problem facing the Church is, as Ed Shaw said, ‘We do not all believe the same things when it comes to identity, se ..read more

The magnificent beauty of God’s design for men and women – with Andrew Leslie
Anglican Church League

3d ago
From The Pastor’s Heart: “Andrew Leslie is encouraging us to first take a step back from practical concerns and reflect on the beauty and wisdom of the Bible’s teaching about manhood and womanhood. In much contemporary debate about gender we focus on practical questions about what different people can do. However the head of Moore Theological College’s Doctrine Department says the picture of gender in the beginning is not an arbitrary divine imposition that comes with its own set of arbitrary rules and instructions. Rather, the man and the woman together – and only together – irreducibly diff ..read more

4d ago
“As the General Synod of the Church of England gathered once again in London on Friday, Rev Ian Paul, a member of the Archbishops’ Council challenged the agenda in forceful terms. Suggesting that Synod had made ‘avoiding reality a bit of an art form,’ he claimed that the Church of England is ‘standing on the brink of a precipice’. A precipice which could leave the next generation with nothing but a ‘heap of ruins’ to fight over. …” – Susie Leafe writes at Christian Today. See Ian Paul’s challenge last Friday (link should go to 01:31:28 in the video). “The Church of England – a heap of ruins f ..read more

St. Helen’s Bishopsgate has published the latest talk from Dick Lucas – Jesus on Prayer: “Why bother with prayer? And how should it be done?

Evangelism for the terrified

“I don’t know about you, but I find evangelism utterly terrifying. It didn’t start that way. After becoming a Christian in my late 20s, one of the things God did in my heart immediately was help me see that following Jesus and sharing the news of Jesus were two sides of the same coin. “How hard could it be?” I thought. Very hard, as it turned out. …” – Dave Jensen begins a regular column in Southern Cross magazine ..read more
