Do not worry about tomorrow

I don’t know about you, but I often find that life can be unpredictable. I can see this in my own life and even more in the lives of others. Sometimes things just don’t work out the way we expect or hope and this can be a daunting prospect. Worry about the future I sometimes […]

God, I feel tired: A Prayer

I experience a range of emotions when I think about racism and injustice in the world–from anger to sadness to frustration and fear – but I do try to remain hopeful.  As the Black theologian and pioneer of Christianity, Augustine of Hippo said, ‘Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are anger and courage.

The Unpredictability of Life

The recent pandemic has got me thinking about how unpredictable life is. This is not something that anybody prepared or planned for.

‘Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did’. H. Jackson Brown Jr. Stepping out into the unknown and doing something new can be daunting. Whether it’s moving to a new place, starting a business or applying for a job, […]

Good God

Good. Not great; not amazing. Just good. We use the word ‘good’ to describe so many different things- food, how we’re feeling, TV programmes, schools… It’s a word we slip into our casual conversations every day and so when the Bible describes God as good, it’s easy to forget all that this really means.
