blessed are those who mourn

I had never considered the frequency of the theme of comfort in Scripture until this past Christmas’ annual pilgrimage to hear Messiah with good friends. Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. I am realizing that this is not just a situational niceness of God or an opportunity for kindness for His people but a part of the great story, the …

blessed are the poor in spirit

There is a kind of poverty that is a requirement for the full presence of God in our lives and for our full presence in His life. It is known as poverty of spirit. The term “poor” gives us a hint as to what this inner life quality is as we meditate on physical poverty itself. It is the state …

an imaginarium

The song I can only Imagine has become quite a favourite in our circles. Imagination is a lovely God gift to his creation. While the apostle tells us that we have not seen nor could our heart grasp all that God has in store for us we can certainly start to imagine! N.T. Wright has prompted so many to begin …

What’s in it for me?

We have had a rigorous look at the meaning of Jesus’ life, and especially his humanness, death and resurrection. In a sense this has been a “Sunday” exercise as we all fall prey at least at times to the dichotomy of life to some version of sacred and secular. Monday can feel like a different day when the meditations of …

“I feel I am going to roar!”

Having asked “Why did God become mortal?” and “why did Jesus have to die?” the next question we are led to is “why did Jesus have to rise from the dead?” How did that factor into the decisions made in heaven’s back room? Would sin and death not have been adequately dealt with by the incarnation and death of Jesus …

Heaven’s Back Room

” Do you really think that mere force will deny me my right little king? Aslan knows that in this, I had blood as the law demands. All of Narnia will be overturned and perish in fire and water. That boy will die on the stone table… as is tradition. You dare not to refuse me.” As we allow the Chronicles …

Athanasius and the “magic deeper still.”

If for C.S Lewis “magic” is simply the way things work and “deeper magic” is humanity’s search for meaning, then “magic deeper still” is the behind the scenes, outside the world, before Creation mystery of the ways things work. This is the domain of the mind of God. Did Jesus come to make us privy to the mind of God? …

a magic deeper still

In the marvellous children’s classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe C.S. Lewis cleverly tells the story of Jesus through the character Aslan. In one magnificent passage Aslan discloses something about the witch who is responsible for Narnia always being “winter, but never Christmas.” She has defeated Aslan once and for all, or so she thinks, by killing him on the …

two men walked into a temple

Sounds like the start of a corny joke, doesn’t it? But it’s not at all funny, this one. Luke 18 9-14. In his commentary Luke actually says that Jesus told this story to some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on others. A Pharisee – character one, the one who was confident of his own righteousness doing …

Lazarus and Eleazar

The story of the rich man (classically called “Dives”) and Lazarus has been the stuff of late night discussions and debates. Was it an account of real events and real people or a parable? Our rule of thumb is the statement in Matthew 13.34 that Jesus did not teach anything apart from by parables. The reason for parables seems to …

The Stories He Told – New Cloth & Wineskins

“The Stories He told!” Jesus’ main communication style was storytelling. The great truths he wanted us to understand were wrapped in story, sometimes delighting, sometimes baffling, but always capturing the attention and imagination of his audience. Just as we saw that John picked out Jesus’ “I am..” statements so we see that Luke was particularly interested in Jesus’ stories. He …
