John 20.19-31

Do you remember your favourite story books when you were a child?  I remember a book of Grimm’s Fairy Tales - when I looked up Grimm’s Fairy Tales on the internet, I was surprised that I recognised a number of the stories in it: Tom Thumb; Snow White & Ros...

In the wilderness

We all have times of wilderness, where we set out on a journey that we have little say over and find ourselves in a place where life just challenges us to the core. Essentially this is not a bad experience although du8ring it, it might feel bad, becaus...

Sermon. 8 .10. 17

One reads a story like today’s Gospel and it is hard not to be overwhelmed with the violence of it. We can avoid it but the truth is, as we have been reminded so starkly this week in the incident in Los Angeles, we live in a violent world. The reality...

Matthew 16.13-20

When I was out on my bike last week, around mid-day, I saw a child, maybe about 3 years old, walking by himself on the footpath.  The temperature was about 11deg, I was freezing on my bike, and he was just in a t-shirt.  But he had his arms up in the air, enjoying the...

Matthew 9.35-10.8

Marshall McLuhan was a philosopher who was popular in the 1960’s.  He is famous for just one thing he said: ‘the medium is the message.’  Meaning: The way we say things is just as important as what we say.  

For example: suppose I give you a g...
