Cross to Death and Death to Life

Welcome back to part 7 of our “Back to Basics”. Hope you are all keeping safe and are feeling ok. And if you aren’t feeling ok, that’s ok too. Today we are following on from last weeks, “Garden to the Cross”, with definitely the best part of the story! This Sunday (Easter Sunday) we, as…

Garden to the Cross

Welcome to part 6, of the our Back to Basics series, the aim of this series is to give you an insight into why Christians believe what they do and why they do some of the things they do. This week we’ll be looking at the Easter story, Part 1 and what it means to…

The Trinity

The trinity is arguably the most difficult concept to both explain and understand in Christianity. It is intertwined with heresy (opinion profoundly contrary to orthodox religious doctrine) and problematic explanations. Like the explanation that the trinity is just like 3-in-1 shampoo, which is a little problematic to say the least!   The word “Trinity” comes…

Who Is Jesus?

  “I have taken it for granted that Jesus of Nazareth existed. Some writers feel a need to justify this assumption at length against people who try from time to time to deny it. It would be easier, frankly, to believe that Tiberius Caesar, Jesus’ contemporary, was a figment of the imagination than to believe…

Sexism and the Church.

I think it’s fair to say that the Church has a reputation for being pretty sexist. In the sense that in the Roman Catholic Church, women cannot be ordained as the Pope, Priests or any role other than a Deacon. These traditions have changed throughout the years and different branches of churches have different rules….

A Reminder.

The winter season is coming in rapidly (especially in Manchester!) The nights have come quicker and darker, the trees are bare and the weather is cold. This time of year can be hard for many, it’s not the brightest season and this affects us sometimes. Personally, I’ve found the season change a challenging one, as…

No more living for the culture, we’re nobodies slaves.

A little bit contradictory I’m sure, but I loved Kanye’s new album. In fact, it actually spoke to me! I listened to it on repeat, but one lyric in particular really spoke to me. In Closed on Sunday he sings the lyrics, ‘No more living for the culture, we’re nobodies slaves.’ I’m also not trying…

Where’s your mountain top?

It’s easy to get lost in the chaos of life and feel suffocated by all the things that we should be doing. Often times, the thing that slides the most is our prayer time, quiet time with God or our Bible reading time. There’s probably several reasons for this but that’s not my point. Nor…

For the girls (boys too if you like)

For the girls (boys too if you like) This post has been on my heart for a very long time, I am so excited to share this with you all because I truly believe that this can change things. It is so hard to express the vastness of this subject in written words, there is…

Joy

It’s basically December, so I’ve recently started to listen to Christmas music again. I’ve also started watching Christmas films and actually decorated my Uni flat. While doing all of this, I began to realise something that has changed my life.   The past 6 months have been really hard for many reasons, I’ve found myself…
