Reflection #9

Here is my latest reflection, with me considering the importance of relationship and community over being right – how do we challenge others opinions and worldviews without breaking relationships and friendships?

Reflection #8

Here is our latest video, with me and John reflecting on our recent short series of talks about Values – and discussing how Jesus’ washing of his disciples’ feet – as recounted in John 13 – is a great example of all the four Values, namely, community (rather than fellowship), incarnated, generosity and service.

Values #2 – Incarnated

It’s been a bit of a delay since my last post, but here is the second in a series of short talks about Values that we prepared for our church weekly service at Morpeth Baptist Church – in which I speak about the Value of Incarnated by considering the current cultural move towards excarnation – followed by a discussion time with John, Sergio and Sarah, one of our church worship leaders, to reflect on the ideas raised during the talk…

Values #1 – Community

As outlined in my update video earlier in the week, here is the first in a series of short talks about Values that we prepared for our church weekly service at Morpeth Baptist Church – in which John Cooper unpacks the Value of Community by considering the importance of communion, communitas and compassion – followed by a discussion time with Martin Luff and Sergio Mendes to develop further the ideas raised by John during his talk…

Reflection #7

There is a lot in the news at the moment about the dishonesty, corruption and lack of integrity of our politicians and national leaders – and what appears to be the increasing apathy in our culture to do anything about it.

A growing number of people (frighteningly) seem to be comfortable with politicians telling lies and being openly corrupt….or, at least, certain politicians, apparently!

But what should our response be as followers of Jesus?

Here is my latest short video reflecting on the effect of dishonesty and corruption – and what I think our response should be as a community of believers in Christ….

Reflection #6

Well, we’ve got content coming thick and fast this week….

Here is another reflection, the first one produced by John, whilst he walks his dog, Daisy, in which he considers how God uses coincidences, and about living a life of goodness that leaves a legacy of blessing….
