Thought For The Week 15 October

I have been asked to prepare a piece for the Illustrated Gospel Project  looking at the story of Jesus and the Syrophoenician woman in Mark 7.  It’s an unusual story.  A woman finds out where Jesus is staying and comes begging Jesus for help.  His first move is to turn her away with an insult:    […]

Thought For The Week 24 September

Thought For The Week 3, September

One of the things that never ceases to amaze me is the love and care that so many people put into our church.  Whether we’re like Mary, sitting at the feet of Jesus, or like Martha, hard at work in the kitchen, our efforts  contribute so much to the life of the church, and to […]
