The Jesus Silly Season

02/12/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat. More tellingly however the news starts to carry a glut of bizzare, minor stories about Jesus which together combine to remind those who are only faintly aware that Christmas is kinda meant to be about Jesus.' More ...

Jesus and the Riots

16/08/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

It would probably be remiss of us not to write something on the riots, but as by now you’ve probably read or heard all the usual points made again and again, I thought I’d share something about the whole thing that’s been nagging away in the back of my mind. More ...

Good Fish, Bad Fish

New York, 2006 - my friends and I were having the time of our lives walking the streets of "The Big Apple". While attempting to locate a particular comic book store we turned a busy corner, at which point I felt a small leaflet being pressed into my hand. No prizes for guessing the message. More ...

The Poor You Will Always Have With You?

30/06/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

In the last month, the Church of England's two most senior bishops have both spoken out on the issue of poverty in the UK. Rowan Williams' piece in the New Statesman grabbed all the headlines a few weeks ago, but last week also saw the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, tackling the issue in Friday's Guardian. In it he argued the need for us to stand together and recognise that individuals have value regardless of the size of their income. More ...

Jesus Wept

22/06/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (2) Comments

It's the shortest verse in the whole Bible and occasionally some people even use it to swear, but there's no doubt that John 11:35 - "Jesus wept." - is an odd little verse. According to the gospels, by this point in his ministry Jesus has already brought two people back from the dead and seems to know that he's about to do something similar. And yet there he stands outside his friend's tomb and weeps. More ...

Alternative Parables: #3 - The Better World

28/02/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (1) Comments

It was one of those church meetings that the media never seems to know exist: a circle of those desperate to make the world a better place passionately offering up their requests to God. As each prayed, the others listened earnestly to their friends' pleas, vocalising their agreement.

I Know How You Feel

07/02/11 | Posted by HughB | Permalink | (1) Comments

Do those words annoy you as much as they do me? Recently there seems to have been a spate of interviews and sound-bites in which Members of Parliament have asserted that they know what it is like for us. We’re all going through this recession together so they understand what it is like for everyone, whatever their circumstances. More ...

400 Years of the King James Bible

29/01/11 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (0) Comments

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible. It may not have been the first translation of the Bible into English, nor even the most accurate, but it has been the most influential and well-loved version of the Bible in the English-speaking world. More ...

TV Review: BBC1’s The Nativity

20/12/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (40) Comments

For many of us our first, and possibly only, acting role was in a nativity play. So it’s strange that so few professional actors get the chance to return to their humble beginnings. The 2006 film The Nativity Story was the first time that an English version of the story had hit the silver screen since 1914. Television has tried a few new approaches to the story, such as 2007’s Liverpool Nativity, but a decent, historical attempt at telling the Christmas Story is long overdue. More ...

Film Review: The Chronicles of Narnia - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

10/12/10 | Posted by MattPage | Permalink | (3) Comments

With a change of director and a change of studio, the latest instalment in the Chronicles of Narnia series has finally arrived in cinemas after a break of two and a half years. As with the book, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader follows the adventures of the younger two Pevensie children, Lucy and Edmund, and their brattish cousin Eustace, as they arrive back in Narnia via a painting of a Narnian ship. There they rejoin King Caspian and the valiant talking mouse Reepicheep who are on a quest to find seven lost Narnian Lords. More ...
