Christmas Cards in an Instant Age

Emily Robertson | October 14th 2021

There’s something wonderfully warming about receiving a handwritten card or letter. Having endured multiple lockdowns over the last 18 months, the importance of letters, parcels and personal signs of relationship over physical distance has been brought into sharper focus. Every card that was sent or received symbolised connection that couldn’t be expressed in other ways.... continue reading

How Voices from the Past Can Encourage Us Today

Tim Chester | January 25th 2021

To help fix our gaze on Jesus, we are surrounded by “a great cloud of witnesses”. For the first readers of Hebrews, these witnesses were the saints of the Old Testament, whose faith in God’s promises had sustained them through troubling times and had enabled them to achieve great things in God’s name. But as readers today, we can add names from across the pages of church history to that crowd of cheering spectators.... continue reading

Sex. A Holy Discipline

Adrian and Celia Reynolds | January 19th 2021

Indeed, you might think that such a sentence is bordering on blasphemy, or at the very least, it’s pushing the boundaries a little. But that kind of response reveals precisely the problem that many Christians have about sex. Married believers know sex is enjoyable, fun, intimate, delightful: but they can’t quite bring themselves to include it in a list of holy disciplines.... continue reading

5 Reasons to Take Your Kids to Old Testament Stories

Carl Laferton | January 14th 2021

Fires on mountains. Warriors and battles. Lions not eating people and bears actually eating people. Queens and slave-girls speaking truth to power. The kids’ fiction shelves of your local bookstore (if it’s open) contain no stories more exciting than Old Testament narratives offer. Of course, these are not “just stories”—they’re true, they are part of the great overarching story of salvation, and they display God’s character—but they are also stories, and exciting ones.... continue reading

7 Things to Keep in Mind When Kids Ask Questions about Faith

Carl Laferton | January 12th 2021

In an ideal world, I would be really-good-dad-Carl who answers his kids’ questions about Christian faith with seven things in mind. In the real world, I’m flawed-but-trying-Carl and I score about 2 out of 7 most times I answer my kids’ questions about faith. That’s ok, because if my children (and yours) are to be saved, it will be by the grace of God through the work of his Spirit, not by the godliness of their parents through the brilliance of their answers.... continue reading

How Do I Improve My Child’s Behavior?

Ed Drew | January 5th 2021

We want children who are followers of Jesus Christ, not only in their beliefs but in their behavior. If we could train them out of sin completely, our children would become perfect, they wouldn’t have needed Jesus Christ to die for them, and we could write the ultimate parenting book! But we can’t.... continue reading

Confusion, Chaos, and Cartwheels: How Family Devotions Normally Go

Ed Drew | December 31st 2020

We have had children lying down to sleep during family Bible time. We regularly have complaints: shouting is not uncommon and there is often silent sulking. What I have never had is, “Dad, please sit down with us and open the Bible because that is what we need.” Please do not wait for the day when your children say that to you.... continue reading

4 Questions to Ask Yourself about Your Quiet Time in the New Year

Tim Thornborough | December 29th 2020

I want to suggest that any serious engagement with God needs to engage three aspects of who we are as people — we are redeemed sinners seeking to serve our Lord and Savior as we journey to the new creation in each others’ company.... continue reading
