Thermostats not Thermometers

How are you doing? Like really? If you’re like me, you ran all out of distractions a few days ago and quarantine days are starting to feel like weeks. I clean and organise absolutely anything if it means I don’t have to revise. I have also run out of baking ideas so if you have…

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….

Learning to hear God’s voice

As a blog, we aim to help you to draw closer to God by any way He makes available, today I’d like to share this preach forwarded to me by a friend. Pastor Tope Koleoso has a really clear way of exploring the different ways that God speaks to us, how we can prepare ourselves…

Cling to Joy

Early last year I read this poem by Morgan Harper Nichols and it really stuck with me. As I began to pray for 2019, God drew me back to that poem but this time the word “unbridled” stuck out to me. To be totally honest, I had no idea what that word meant but here’s…

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…

3 things Elim School of Worship taught me

For anyone who is wondering what I’ve spent the past year doing, here is a very tiny snippet of the internship that I have just finished for my placement year. I had the privilege of being involved with various types of ministry within the church but here’s one aspect I wanted to share some standout…

When Anxiety Comes

As the title suggests, this is a tool I’ve designed to help you face reality when anxiety comes. That’s right when anxiety comes. It arrives at different points for all of us…

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…

Why We Changed the Name

Guess who’s back and better than ever?! (google it) After a long time of prayer and consideration we have decided to rejuvenate our blog: our name, vision and format. Originally, we named our blog ‘Rooted’ because our vision was wide and less focused than it is now. We wanted to encourage other believers to be…
