The Times

One thing this pandemic and the lockdown has shown me is that we as humans can be very kind and considerate to each other it seems that the worst brings out the best in people and I have to ask the question why do we have to have a disaster such as this pandemic to be nice to our fellow men.

Discipleship consists of calling, naming and sending. In this passage in Matthew there is a theme of engagement and withdrawal. There is a time to engage and a time to withdraw.

The Father's House

If like me, you have attended numerous Caribbean funerals, the bible reading from John chapter 14 is easily recognisable. This passage is entitled: 'The way, the truth and the Life’. I was once asked by a friend to visit his uncle, in hospital who nearing the end of his life.

Easter Three

It is later on Easter Day, the day on which Mary Magdalene and the other women have discovered the empty tomb. We know from that the disciples (and probably these two were among them) did not believe the women “because their words seemed to them like nonsense.” This was their first mistake – not believing the women!

Mother's Day

Mothers come in different shapes colours and sizes! My mother was little and looked a bit foreign (and of course she was!) in the environment I grew up in. She was a good role model in that she was a bright working mum who worked her way up from being in a typing pool to working in the Cabinet Office...

A plague of locusts has ravaged through East Africa and is set to descend on the Middle East in time for Passover. Extreme fires burned through Australia and the Amazon caused by drought and climate change. Corona virus is spreading through the world. So the question on many Christian’s lips is “Are these the end times”?

Fifth Sunday of Lent

Johns gospel is built around the "I ams" and "signs and wonders".  His teaching along with the miracles in the gospel, show that he is Jesus the bread of life, the water of life, the light of life.
