He’s Alive!

12/04/09 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (1) Comments

The first person to meet Jesus that first Easter morning was Mary…the tomb, which had been guarded by Roman soldiers, was empty and she was heartbroken – who had taken Jesus? Where was he? But then there he was. She had thought he was the gardener but then she realised it really was Jesus, standing there in front of her. Jesus is Alive! More ...

Saturday Blues

When my Dad died a few years ago the time immediately after his death was really difficult. He had been ill for only a month and much of that time was spent looking after him and my mother – making sure they were ok, cooking meals, dealing with visitors and other domestic duties. The day after he died I was left in a void. I had an almost overwhelming sense of loss. I didn’t know what to do with myself.
This is what the disciples must have felt the day after Jesus died. He was gone. Everything they had lived for had gone. What was their life going to be like now? More ...

Conversations with Jesus: As he is dying on the cross Jesus speaks to two thieves.

10/04/09 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (4) Comments

It was a Friday. Jesus had been condemned to a shameful death. Beaten, humiliated and desperate Jesus is nailed to a cross – on his head a crown of thorns, above him a Roman soldier had written ‘This is the King of the Jews’. To Jesus’ right is a condemned thief named Dismas, to his left a condemned thief named Gestas. All three men are dying – a slow painful public death. More ...

This is compassion

It's nearly two o'clock in the morning, and I'm struggling to keep my eyelids open. I'm awake for a reason. On this night Christians remember something that happened in the small hours just before Jesus' arrest. Before the soldiers came to get him, Jesus went out to an olive garden on the edge of the city, a garden known as Gethsemane. Knowing what was about to happen, and getting very agitated, he said to his friends, "I'm hurting to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me." More ...

Holy Week

08/04/09 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (2) Comments

This week is holy week…the last week of lent. So, on Saturday all those things we gave up for lent can begin again. At the start of lent I asked the question – what are you giving up for lent? I also mentioned that this year rather then focusing on giving something up I had decided to start something up – walking to work. I can report that most days I have managed to keep my lent promise (a few particularly unpleasant days meant that I gave in an got the bus). So, as lent comes to an end I wonder how you have got on?

Did you see what happened?

I saw an accident today. As I stood waiting for my youngest to come out of school, a group of children ran past us shouting and laughing and then one of them was lying flat out on the floor and not moving. Two parents went over straight away to see if the girl was conscious and there was horrible couple of minutes when she didn’t respond. More ...

Prophesy That

Film Review: Knowing
Of all the titles that Jesus was known by during his time on earth, "prophet" was perhaps more widely used than anything else. The crowds, the woman at the well, the Pharisees, the disciples and even Jesus himself all used the term. Yet it's one of the descriptions that we're perhaps least comfortable with today. It’s fine for Jesus to be a "good teacher" or even a messiah, but it's usually only the followers of Islam who will call him a prophet. More ...

Crowds gather to be ignored by Jesus

Most of the time I can look at art without asking the question, 'what does this mean?'. But many images of Christ can be quite compelling. Two days ago this image appeared on the side of a video rental shop in New Bedford in the US. What does it mean to you? More ...

The Hidden Gospels - Part 1

26/03/09 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (3) Comments

If you had had asked anyone twenty years ago how many gospels there were, almost everyone would have given you the same reply – “four”. These days things are very different. Dan Brown’s religious conspiracy theory novel, “The DaVinci Code” opened the eyes to millions of people to the fact that there were whole bunch of gospels that they had never even heard of. Suddenly all kinds of people were claiming that there was all sorts of information about Jesus that the general public never knew existed. More ...
