Saturday Blues

11/04/09 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (0) Comments

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 ...

This is compassion

10/04/09 | Posted by Vicky | Permalink | (2) Comments

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?

What have you given up for lent?

It seems that everyone around me has given something up for lent – the most popular being chocolate, wine, bread, cake, swearing and this year’s favourite facebook – it got me wondering why on earth we put ourselves through this annual 40 day fast and what does it all means? More ...

Jesus – the Pisces personality

23/02/09 | Posted by Steve Hollinghurst | Permalink | (78) Comments

This personality type is based in the water/spirit area. The Pisces personality is centred around spirituality and intuition often coupled with compassion for others and a willingness to sacrifice themselves for others. Interestingly Pisces has been strongly linked to Jesus by some traditions because of the movement of the earth in relation to the stars that means roughly every two thousand years we move from what could be said to be the age of one star sign to the next.

Jesus – the Aquarius personality

09/02/09 | Posted by Steve Hollinghurst | Permalink | (6) Comments

Jesus is the model for all kinds of people to look to as they seek to become fully themselves and reach their potential. It could then be said that if we can speak of the star signs as representing different personality types, we can speak of Jesus as possessing the best traits of each. ‘Zodiac Jesus’ explores this each month showing how Jesus embodies the best of each type. Read the introduction to this series. More ...

Are Jesus and Dracula the same person? The seven key clues….

02/02/09 | Posted by feihero | Permalink | (12) Comments

Once bitten forever smitten. Or so it would seem. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a 14 year-old fan of Twilight, a Victorian reader of Bram Stoker, or a medieval French clegyman writing a report of unsettling happenings in your parish. Once you’ve glimpsed the pale and interesting face of vampirism, you fall under its spell. There can have been few things more resilient, more contagious, or more epidemic in the human imagination, you might think, than the idea of vampires. More ...

The Six Secrets of Santa

13/12/08 | Posted by feihero | Permalink | (2) Comments

Draw a Father Christmas. Right now. In your mind at the very least. Was he fat? White? Old? Why? There are a lot of images which we see so often, that it's easy to forget we've created them. Or chosen them at least. And we may never stop to question why we've chosen to make them look this particular way. But when a psychologist says - "Draw a... house" - you might be shocked to learn how much more your drawing says about you, than it does about any house you've ever lived in. And the bloke you draw trying to squeeze down the chimney has got even more surprises in his sack. Secrets in fact. And not his secrets – ours! So what does Santa say about the things we really want (not just) for Christmas? More ...

Lectio divina - what’s it all about?

04/12/08 | Posted by ellen | Permalink | (1) Comments

Lectio divina (Latin for divine reading, holy reading, spiritual reading) is an ancient tradition of reading and engaging with the bible. It is a traditional Christian practice of prayer and scriptural reading that encourages a communion with the Triune God as well as promotes a spiritual connection with scripture. Lectio divina is a way of praying with Scripture that calls one to study, ponder, listen and, finally, pray from God's Word More ...
