Podcast really returns for real.

Someone came up to me in the street and asked me, "do people really come up to you in the street and ask you things?" and I said "no, no they don't it's just a literary device to introduce a point."  "Oh," he fictitiously responded, "that's a shame because that means that I don't actually exist."  "Yes," I said, "I know that but there's no need to go on about it, just ask me about the podcast."

Someone came up to me in the street and asked me:"what happened to the podcast, OK we get a daily radio show which we can listen to on demand but what about the podcast?  When's the next update of "Good News Over Coffee"?"  Well, non-existent questioner, it's soon.  Recent episodes have been on a specific topic and recorded in the fictitious studio (actually my study).  The last two were on the important subject of Baptism, including conversion, Baptism in water and Baptism in the Spirit.

The time is coming and is already here, when a new podcast episode is near.  The podcast will now have new episodes on a weekly basis featuring a shortened and focussed version of the sermons on Sunday and sometimes a song or sketch.  It's what you wanted, fictitious questioner, and you're (really) gonna get it.  Over the next few months there's some vital teaching coming up!

Return of the King on Palm Sunday

Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien tells a story in an imaginary world that somehow rings true. In Tolkien’s fantastic universe of humans, hobbits, elves, wizards, dwarves and monsters, a great evil threatens to cover the world in darkness and make every living being its slave. Chaos is the order of the day. Fear rules the hearts of most. Hope is faint. Yet amid the darkness, there are flickers of light in the love, unity and courage of  a few heroic characters. One of them is Aragon, who is destined to be king. The trilogy ends with his long-awaited return to the throne and triumphant deliverance of his people. Mark 11:1-10 is one of the Bible passages for Palm Sunday, it tells of Jesus entering Jerusalem to the cheers of the crowd, it is the return of the King: Now when they drew near to Jerusalem, to Bethphage and Bethany, at the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go into the village in front of you, and immediately as you enter it you will find a c

Public worship continues during this government national lockdown.

Church worship in my churches, St Pauls, St Lukes and St Mary's in Wallasey, continues each week.  If people are able to make it out, you are welcome. Wherever they are  are we are praying for them. A church minister's letter,  signed by 1,161 English ministers and priests,  was sent to the British government saying:  "The suspension of church services during the first lockdown was something that we were willing to do, given the unknown nature and scale of the threat we were facing. Yet the costs were high. Our greatest concern was that for four months God was not publicly worshipped in this country. And we have all seen first-hand the deep damage that this caused to many people. Since restarting in July, church has been a vital lifeline to many who have been struggling with loneliness and other negative effects of lockdown." Churches have gone to great lengths to ensure that worship need not be suspended again and put in place thorough COVID-secure measures. As a res

The Power that Perseveres

The dictionary defines hope as looking out for something good; a belief that what we wish for will come. Are you hoping for the positive outcome of your dream, a sickness, or finances? Do you see the desired end result in your mind's eye so vividly that you can almost touch it? What is your hope based on? Were you very excited yesterday when the stock market jumped or the doctor gave an optimistic prognosis? How about today, when the market had a sudden drop and the hospital reported further complications in your condition? Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1).  Now, what does that mean? You mean that no matter how hard it gets and when everything points to disaster you still have to hope against all hope? So, if you clench your teeth, purse your lips and scrunch your eyes together in faith trusting your dilemma will pass, it should go, right? Well, let's have a look how the Bible puts it... We rejoice in our sufferings, k
