Bible Reading Notes : John's Gospel

Bible Reading Notes : John's Gospel

By Iain Clements, 02 Jan 2017

I was talking to a member here at some point last year and he commented to me that he was struggling to find some consistantly helpful Bible reading notes. As it is the start of a brand new year I have decided to try and help him out and write some myself!  My aim is to write around 300 words of reflection on a short passage from John's gospel - working through the gospel from start to...

Post-truth

Post-truth

By Iain Clements, 14 Dec 2016

The Oxford dictionary has declared “post-truth” to be its international word of the year. According to the Guardian newspaper: “Defined by the dictionary as an adjective “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief”, editors said that use of the term “post-truth...

31st October

31st October

By Iain Clements, 27 Oct 2016

There are some days in the year that I approach with a bit of nervousness. New Years Eve is one. Will I have to go to a party that seems to never end (after all, you can’t slip away until after midnight)? Will I be firmly encouraged to join in with “silly games”? The other date that gives me a similar kind of fear and dread is 31st October. I confess it’s not because I am full o...

Adoption and the Gospel

Adoption and the Gospel

By Iain Clements, 27 Sep 2016

I hope you will forgive the personal nature of this month’s blog post. My wife and I have just been approved as adoptive parents. It has not been an easy few months since we first approached the council. The assessment is very thorough and intrusive - as it must be. As well as the interviews we have had to do our own study about adoption and the kind of backgrounds adoptive children have com...

Job

Job

By Iain Clements, 25 Mar 2016

Over the last couple of months on Sunday evenings we have been going through the book of Job. For years I always struggled with this book of the Bible. It seemed so long, and had so many puzzling aspects to it.
