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.

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.

Jamie Fredricks
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.

Radical Life
Jamie Fredricks
One of the key distinctives of the Radical Reformers was their focus on personal faith and repentance: an individual's own decision to follow Jesus. Jamie focuses on the story of the Transfiguration to explore what we are following in life, who we are listening to and who, ultimately, we think Jesus is.

Meaning of Life, Life of Meaning
Jamie Fredricks
There are many voices today that would assert that life is meaningless, that there is no purpose beyond our immediate concerns. Jamie has a look at the biblical picture which turns this on its head and shows us that living lives of purpose and meaning is what we were made for.
