How To Change the World

We see injustice. We see pornography and sexual abuse. We see scraping poverty and economic systems of oppression. We see big business in bed with the military and little Arab girls get bombed to kingdom come. We see millions of children dismembered and sucked out of their mother’s wombs by medical vacuum cleaners. And meanwhile,…

The Parable of the Cross

The first half of the life of Jesus is a parable. It’s full of parables, but it is itself parabolic — it’s mysterious, enigmatic, and constantly pressing a question: Who is this? What does it does it mean? What does He mean? And perhaps most importantly, how will you respond, what will you do? And…

The Last Enemy

Let me just make a quick plug for the upcoming conference we are hosting at Trinity: The Last Enemy, a Christian view of death with Steve Jeffery. First, you should know that Steve is the Minister of Emmanuel Evangelical Church, in Southgate, North London.

The Madness of Grace

You know when that unexpected gift comes? The one you so hoped for but couldn’t imagine would actually be possible? That one. And remember that moment? That joy. It might have taken time to sink in, but it did slowly, wonderfully, all the way down to your toes. Realization of all that it meant. Understanding….

Which Is More Than You Think

“The mission of God’s people is not a matter of how great we are at doing things for God, but a matter of how patient and persistent God is in doing things through us.” – Christopher J.H. Wright, The Mission of God’s People, 169.

Lamitudes

One of the ways Christians often handcuff themselves for the mission Jesus has given us is by misunderstanding the nature of sin.
