Lucy Writes… April 2016

Long obedience in the same direction If someone asked you what your favourite book of the Bible was, how would you answer it? Perhaps a gospel that helps us get close Jesus, an eloquently argued letter of Paul, or a heroic story of an Old Testament character?

Lucy Writes… March 2016

From Lucy I’ve been thinking hard about prayer recently, and prayer is hard. The act of praying isn’t hard, but making room for prayer is often hard. Sometimes prayer gets squeezed because I’m tired, or busy, or I just forget. You see I sometimes do things, worry about things, plan things, and then forget to pray.

Lucy Writes… January 2016

From Lucy As I write this we are still in advent, and during advent, I decided to try the Bible Society’s ‘Advent Challenge.’ Each day I receive an email with a simple small challenge. A number of the challenges included things like: giving money to charity, buying a Fairtrade product, and trying to be less dependent on technology for a couple of hours. Some of them are a bit easier than others. I did try to find a long queue…
