Look: Witness and Protest
Jamie Fredricks
In the book of Lamentations there is a heart-cry from the depths of suffering, for God and human beings to 'look', to see what is going on. We have a crucial role to play in both 'witnessing' and 'protesting' the pain of the world, and also in announcing and enacting hope and healing.

Wisdom pt3 - Job
Jamie Fredricks
Rounding out our short wisdom series, the Book of Job offers a powerful insight into the experience of suffering, in 42 chapters of epic Hebrew poetry. Jamie explores how this text can challenge our preconceptions and assumptions about God, that maybe owe more to pagan ideas than the truth that Jesus reveals.

Wisdom pt2 - Ecclesiastes
Jamie Fredricks
Jamie takes a look at Ecclesiastes, an unflinchingly honest book about faith that is by turns cynical, worldweary and yet deeply insightful. This is a book for people who have weathered storms: It doesn't offer easy answers or trite philosophies... But for those who engage deeply with it, Ecclesiastes brings rich wisdom and sound encouragement.

Father of Us
Jamie Fredricks
It's sometimes known as 'The Lord's Prayer' or the 'Our Father', but either way the prayer that Jesus teaches his disciples could be said to sum up his whole message, and speak to some of the deepest truths of lives. This week Jamie takes a look at the first one and a half verses...

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.
