Coffee and New Creation

Posted by Elspeth on October 27, 2010

Most people who know me will be aware that coffee plays a significant part in my life. I am well acquainted with most of the coffee shops in the city, and measure work periods from one cup to the next.  So I have a certain sympathy with TS Eliot's protagonist, J Alfred Prufrock, when he says that he has ‘measured out his life with coffee spoons'.  Even if you're not a coffee drinker, life can feel like a series of insignificant events s Continue reading…

Food for thought from Sunday morning 24 October

Posted by Claire on October 25, 2010

Paul Clarke spoke from Matthew 5:33-48.  His summary sentence is:   Be like your father in heaven - speak the truth, sacrifice your rights and love indiscriminately.

To find the talk, go to the Values of the Kingdom series.

Prep questions for John 4 (Week 6)

Posted on October 25, 2010

John 4 v1-54

1. By contrasting Nicodemus with the woman at the well what do we learn about what it means to believe and who is in the Kingdom?

3. From the woman's response in these verses, Continue reading…
