Proving the doubters

Posted by RML Wednesday Mark on June 25, 2012

When Allison Cooke from Melbourne, Australia, won the BoysTown lottery 7 months ago, her mother didn't believe her. She'd become the owner of a £830,000 luxury beach apartment, £33,500 in furniture, £45,000 in gold bullion and almost £4,000 in travel money. But her mother didn't believe her. You can imagine the conversation.

"Mum, I've won the lottery!"

"Don't be silly, Ali, no one wins the lottery."

"But I've won it! I really did!"

He has Risen

Posted by The 4pm Team on June 24, 2012

The world isn't exactly short of conspiracy theories; but when it comes to the case of the empty tomb, there's an abundance. We've probably all heard the common ones: maybe someone stole the body, or perhaps Jesus somehow survived the cross and got away.

That's my King

Posted by The 4pm Team on June 13, 2012

It may well be that the idea of Jesus being our King is not something we'd thought much about before studying Mark's gospel in RML this year.

It's not a concept that we find easy to get our heads around given that in our society our monarch is, with all due respect, pretty powerless.
