Look: Witness and Protest
Jamie Fredricks
In the book of Lamentations there is a heart-cry from the depths of suffering, for God and human beings to 'look', to see what is going on. We have a crucial role to play in both 'witnessing' and 'protesting' the pain of the world, and also in announcing and enacting hope and healing.

Walking with Micah
Nick White
Against the idea of simply following the rulebook, or 'ticking the boxes' in an unthinking way, Nick uses the injunction found in Micah chapter 6 to challenge us to move in the world with thoughtful care: Acting justly, loving mercy and walking humbly with our God.

Wisdom pt3 - Job
Jamie Fredricks
Rounding out our short wisdom series, the Book of Job offers a powerful insight into the experience of suffering, in 42 chapters of epic Hebrew poetry. Jamie explores how this text can challenge our preconceptions and assumptions about God, that maybe owe more to pagan ideas than the truth that Jesus reveals.

Wisdom pt2 - Ecclesiastes
Jamie Fredricks
Jamie takes a look at Ecclesiastes, an unflinchingly honest book about faith that is by turns cynical, worldweary and yet deeply insightful. This is a book for people who have weathered storms: It doesn't offer easy answers or trite philosophies... But for those who engage deeply with it, Ecclesiastes brings rich wisdom and sound encouragement.

Proverbs tells us that wisdom was woven by God into the fabric of the universe, and all of humankind can align themselves with God’s moral logic, if only we seek it! Through this book of wisdom literature we can better understand how to live our lives in a way that honours God and others.

Father of Us
Jamie Fredricks
It's sometimes known as 'The Lord's Prayer' or the 'Our Father', but either way the prayer that Jesus teaches his disciples could be said to sum up his whole message, and speak to some of the deepest truths of lives. This week Jamie takes a look at the first one and a half verses...

Struggling, Spitting and Upsetting People
Jamie Fredricks
Often we find ourselves in times of grief, confusion, pain or challenge. Sometimes attempts to comfort us can feel like trying to deny the mess, or tidy it up - they usually feel superficial. Instead, Jamie considers how wrestling with, and being honest about our questions and struggles are at the heart of following Jesus.

The Messiah Manifesto
Nick Drury
Continuing this irregular series, Nick looks at how the first of Jesus’ public addresses is a direct answer to the key question of what this guy's all about. Looking to this Jesus manifesto can help us re-form our understandings of what/who God stands for, and in turn how we are called to represent Christ as we journey into the year ahead.
