The Christian and the Internet – Opportunities and Pitfalls

At the weekend I attended the Christian Medical Fellowship Student Conference. It was so encouraging to see hundreds of bright young medical students gathering to hear God's Word, and learn Christian principles that will help them at work.If you are a Christian Doctor, Nurse, or a student working towards such a career in the UK, I would certainly recommend this organization. Among many events they organize, in April they will be doing a Psychiatry Day Conference.I was asked to share a … [Read more...]

The year my commute almost killed my blog. Review of 2015

As 2015 draws to a close, it is my tradition to review the year that was. I have reviewed my blog previously, looking at posts from 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014.   Each time I do so, I find that it is helpful for me to reflect on what I have written, and behind that what God has done each year.2015 was a year that I had been slightly concerned about for many years. It was the year that my eldest, Tamasin, would take her A Levels, my next, Henry, h … [Read more...]

Authority vs Internet-inspired anarchy

In this third session of Evangelism in a Post-Christian World, the focus turns to using the Internet as a Christian. Without the printing press it is hard to see how the Reformation would have had the impact it did. How can Christians today use Social Media for good? What should we beware of?You can watch the video above or download the notes here: Authority vs Internet-inspired anarchy … [Read more...]

Gospel Confidence: Do you really want your church to grow?

The second in my series of talks on Evangelism in a Post-Chritian World is called: Gospel Confidence: Do you really want your church to grow?. It is my contention that many of us are actually secretly not that keen on our church growing. If this is true, then we are not that keen on people becoming Christians. There is something wrong if that is the case. In this talk I encourage us to renew our passionate conviction for the gospel, and dare to believe that Jesus meant what he said when he … [Read more...]

I plan on taking a break from blogging as 2015 begins, if you missed these posts, or would like to catch up on my year in the meantime follow the links:My thoughts on the latest round of Mark Driscoll and Acts 29 c … [Read more...]

The best and the worst of 2014

It is hard to believe that 2014 is about to draw to an end. It is good for us to turn to a few days of reflection on what has been, of gratitude to God for his faithfulness, of expressing our regrets, and of giving voice to our hopes for 2015.The year on this blog began with me sharing content from Eddy Leo which included an interview and sessions from our 300 Leaders conference that had occurred in 2013. Eddy's impact on our church was real, and we continue to implement his helpful and … [Read more...]

Are people of faith no longer welcome in Britain?

Here we have another guest post from education expert Gill Robins.G K Chesterton once observed of a friend that ‘he thought that the object of opening the mind is simply opening the mind. I am incurably convinced that the object of opening the mind ... is to shut it again on something solid.’ In the last few days, it rather seems that the Department for Education (DfE) together with our Secretary of State for Education, have become advocates of the permanently open mind, and the outcomes hav … [Read more...]
