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.

The Lord's Supper

The Lord's Supper

By Iain Clements, 23 Oct 2015

Below is the text of my article in this month's church magazine. As the church gathers together to worship the Lord, at the centre of what we do must be the preaching of the word and the administration of the sacraments. As God’s word is preached we hear his voice, which his Spirit works through to call us and enable us to obey him - to grow in faith and repentance. The sacra...
