Mark Roques on A Prayer for the Year (Tuesday 23rd June 2020 12:23pm)

Thanks Georgina so much for your very edifying and inspiring prayer.

Lola on Dangerous Faith in Santa Muerte (Friday 19th June 2020 3:54am)

What happens if someone prays to la Santa Muerte? Is there a prayer to God that can protect us from anything coming from La Santa Muerte. My ex said he prayed to it and promised things to it if his court case goes well. He had completely changed and I’m scared he might be embrujado.

Maybe Frank Sinatra should have included John 3, Nicodemus' conversation with Jesus at NIGHT about achieving Eternal Life, and HOW to do it! Nicodemus was a Jewish Rabbi, was a wimp, because he did not want to be seen with Christ. A very PERSONAL God! My 'spiritual' insight into Frank Sinatra is that he's in a warm place! VERY WARM!

I read a long time ago that for social acceptance back in the day that in order to function in society atheists would call themselves Catholic. Many who have no true relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ call themselves Catholic even today.

Ron N. on On Horses and Victory: Proverbs 21:31 (Wednesday 29th April 2020 6:53am)

I’m wondering if the horse is supposed to be ours or the enemy’s. Proverbs does talk about being prepared (as does Christ!); but there are multiple points in the TaNaK/OT that should make us pause:
Exodus 15:1—Then Moses and the sons of Israel sang this song to the LORD, and said,
“ I will sing to the LORD, for He is highly exalted;
The horse and its rider He has hurled into the sea.”

Psalm 20:7— Some boast in chariots and some in horses,
But we will boast in the name of the LORD, our God.

Nice one mate!

Cal Bailey on George MacDonald, Anxiety, and Joy (Tuesday 14th April 2020 10:45am)

Excellent and timely reminder. Wasn't McDonald a gem?

David Hanson on Charting the territories of science and religion (Monday 13th April 2020 11:03am)

Thanks for that, Richard: an illuminating blog. As Harrison deconstructs matters, does the notion of an ultimate 'tie' (Lat. ligare) come to light within the idea of religion. I must read him.

Shirley Sides on Solitude and unity: a medieval perspective (Tuesday 7th April 2020 7:33pm)

Thank you for these thoughts. I am grateful... to discover the skill of devotion, rather than public works, as a Christian, is a good place...

David Hanson on Solitude and unity: a medieval perspective (Monday 23rd March 2020 11:40pm)

Really insightful piece. Thank you. We need reminding often that the Body of Christ is only partially reflected in the congregation. Its communion is prior to, and broader than, the local union of any group of believers. But we can and do experience that communion with the 'eyes of the spirit' - even with 'those whose rest is won'.
