Struggling, Spitting and Upsetting People
Jamie Fredricks
Often we find ourselves in times of grief, confusion, pain or challenge. Sometimes attempts to comfort us can feel like trying to deny the mess, or tidy it up - they usually feel superficial. Instead, Jamie considers how wrestling with, and being honest about our questions and struggles are at the heart of following Jesus.

The Messiah Manifesto
Nick Drury
Continuing this irregular series, Nick looks at how the first of Jesus’ public addresses is a direct answer to the key question of what this guy's all about. Looking to this Jesus manifesto can help us re-form our understandings of what/who God stands for, and in turn how we are called to represent Christ as we journey into the year ahead.

In All Things Give Thanks
Richard Starling
"In all things give thanks" - 1 Thess 5 v18 as Paul exhorts Christians to remember God is always with us- even in the difficult times. God's compassion is shown as He "saves our tears in a bottle" (Ps 56 v8). God is good, faithful and loving- this is who we follow into 2019.

Gifted pt 3 - Myrrh
Nick Drury
In the final part of this series, Nick explores the symbolism of Myrrh and how this relates to the ministry of Jesus, and to our lives. Myrrh manages to tie together images of bitterness wounds and suffering, with healing, transformation and a deep and mysterious sense of the divine.

Gifted pt 2 - Frankincense
Jamie Fredricks
The gift of Frankincense invokes images of worship and priestly ministry. But what does this mean for our lives? The story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman shows how sometimes our thinking about such things can get side-tracked, but also gives us a wonderful vision of 'lives of worship'.

Bullet Time
Jamie Fredricks
The story of David and Goliath has become synonymous with an unequal confrontation, or the victory of an underdog against overwhelming odds. But why is David an underdog? Jamie uses this story to explore how sometimes our preconceptions can cause us to miss what God might be doing in scripture, and in our everyday lives.

The hundredth anniversary of the end of the First World War is a poignant moment to reflect upon the pity of war and the human fascination with coercive power. Jamie illustrates how the gospel of Jesus has always stood in direct contradiction to the gospel of Caesar, the way of military power and domination.

Münster in the Closet
Jamie Fredricks
In this series we've explored several of the positive lessons that we might learn from the Anabaptists. But we can also learn from things that have gone wrong. The Münster rebellion is a black chapter in the history of the radical reformation and has much to teach us about how quickly things turn sour if we lose our grasp on Jesus.
