Christ the King: "Mind Changing"

The Reverend Robin Sims-Williams

A couple of weeks ago I led an assembly at our school. The topic was - ‘people changed by Jesus.’ I decided to talk to them about how we change our minds about how something works or what we want to do. Then one of the children suggested that being forgiven could change their mind or behaviour.

Christ the King: "Carrying a Passport"

The Revd Robin Sims-Williams

It feels like there is a never ending cycle of finger pointing sometimes. This week the media and politicians have been very keen to point fingers at The Rev Paul Flowers and the Cooperative bank. Paul Flowers, a Methodist minister, has been caught buying hard drugs and his credentials as chairman of a financial institute have been brought into question. It seems the last few years have been a roundabout of finger-pointing, targeting politicians expenses, media hacking, energy company profits, etc. etc.

Christ the King: "Being Grateful for Creation"

The Revd Brutus Green

There are two facts, two doctrines if you like, on which Christianity, as a philosophy, a religion, a world-view, depends and takes all its meaning. The second isthe birth of Christ, the Incarnation, but despite all the blue lights on Connaught Street we’ll leave that one to next month. The first and most definitive fact is the Creation, or more precisely, creatio ex nihilo, creation from nothing.

Christ the King: "Seeing the World Differently"

The Revd Brutus Green

“I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe.”
