Posted by City Team on May 31, 2012

Ro Trivedi recently finished seven years as an IT analyst at Deutsche Bank to become a Maths teacher. We asked him for his top tips on being a Christian in the workplace.

I hope that the following thoughts will be helpful as you work and live as an ambassador for Christ, with the ministry of reconciliation that we have all been given...

What makes grown men cry?

Posted on May 31, 2012

"And he broke down and wept" (Mark 14:72).

Isn't Peter's breakdown exactly the way we feel at the end of Mark 14:26-72? We see the immense contrast between a resolute, innocent Jesus going to His terrifying death, and the disciples' abysmal failure and desertion. As we see Jesus' utter abandonment in His hour of need, don't we feel Peter's sorrow at his failure?

At the emotional climax of Mark's gospel, we see Jesus determined to do the Continue reading…

What would you do with 26 grand?

Posted by RML Wednesday Mark on May 24, 2012

Mark's account of the woman's extravagance in Mark 14 seems an age away from 21st Century London. We don't carry pure nard around with us (well, I don't!) and as Christians we value Jesus' death. Don't we? Mark's words to us this week are an enormous challenge, if only we'll listen.
