A Great Way to Listen to Scripture (via The Vicar’s Wife)

This is worth a look at and I agree – a great way to Listen (& read) scritpure!

We had a helpful sermon series on Colossians earlier in the year, and I’m looking forward to hearing Lizzy Smallwood speak from the same book at the Northern Women’s Convention on 9th October. In the meantime, this is a brilliant reminder of the riches of Chapter 2. [HT Dan Green] … Read More

The Ghost

Last night I went to the cinema to see ‘The Ghost’ having read the book, which was amazing.   The film is really worth going to see.  It’s a Roman Polanski version of Robert Harris’s book with Pierce Brosnan and Ewan McGregor playing the UK Prime Minister and a Ghost writer of a book that needs to be written about the Prime Ministers time in Office.  The Ghost stumbles upon something which puts his life in danger.  Who can you trust?  is a question that flows through the film.

Contemplating the cross

I’ve been following the book Contemplating the Cross a Pilgrimage of Prayer by Tricia McCary Rhodes.

Her Last chapter – epilogue is entitled Resurrection and starts with a quote by Dorothy L. Sayers…The Disciples had seen the strong hands of God twist the crown of thorns into a crown of glory, and in hands as strong as that they knew themselves safe…They had expected a walkover, and they beheld a victory; they had expected an earthly Messiah, and they beheld the Soul of Eternity.

Each daily prayer / section of the book has a reflection, read, respond, pray.  It is an amazing book to follow through lent or use with Lent groups – it is very good at making you think about how horrific the cross was and how lucky we are.
