Exploring ideas

The offline church I belong to is starting to grapple with what returning to the church building will look like. It doesn't seem likely, in a very old village church building, that we're going to be able to return to anything like the previous pattern of services, with people at the main morning ser...

Thanks, Pam. I didn't know the book was out. Good for Tim ! I remember him well. I wonder if for the next edition he'll need to add a chapter about what's happening all over the country now ?

Thanks for the mention, Joyce! The inspiration for the book was the number of times we were asked for ideas by students at different levels. We also had a member, Tim Hutchings, who wrote his PhD about online church, for which he conducted interviews with many members of online churches. Tim has now...

VE Day 75th Anniversary

Fascinating memories! Thank you for sharing some of your families' histories. My maternal grandpa and uncle were miners, which was a reserved occupation, so they weren't called up. My father went into the RAF and trained as a navigator, but he didn't get to fly very often. My mother took the opportu...

I find the creation of the video and the song itself - both the results of people using their gifts for the benefit of others - very uplifting!

Holy Saturday

The idea that Jesus preached to the souls of the dead between his death and his Resurrection comes from 1Peter 3 in the bible: For Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring you to God. He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spir...
