Yesterday, I had a discussion with a group of friends on Facebook (as one does), along with a number of others whom I've not had the pleasure of meeting. It started with someone posing what should be a solved puzzle in Christology, and therefore easy to answer. But between us we initially had a bit of trouble articulating the necessary categories and distinctions to solve this one. Others were...Read more
Two factor authentication (2FA) is a good thing.
A password is secure, as far as it goes. Only you know it. So only you can log in.
But if someone else learns your password, they can log in. So you add a second factor. As well as something you know (your password) you need something you have in order to log in. This may be your mobile phone, or a small...Read more

Death is nothing at all. It does...Read more
A sermon given on Remembrance Sunday 2018
We’ve come together today to remember those who gave their lives during the two great wars of the last century. Every community in England lost huge numbers of people, and we resolved never to forget. We will remember them.
Since then, there have been many wars, and war continues around the world. 80 million may have died in World War......
Does God still speak today? That’s the question asked by our Bible reading.
If he doesn’t, we’re in the dark.
We’ve just baptised Andrew. He’s got to chart a path through life, and his parents have just signed up God to be his guide.
Well, our boys love mazes, and maybe Andrew’s brother and sister do too. If you’re a bit lost at Crystal Palace or Leeds Castle, you’d......
What are we doing here this morning?
What happens when Christians come together, for what we call “church”.
