    [Everyday faith]: Heb. 10:19-26 Response

    [Everyday faith]: Heb. 10:19-26 Response

    The (soon to be) venerable Richard reminds us that Jesus is our great high priest, who has sacrificed himself for us. The writer of today's passage asks "Given what God has already done, how might you respond?". Richard considers the weekly reality we all face of a "Monday morning moment" when the weight of responsibility may feel too much, and encourages us to accept and reflect on God's gift and to keep gaining strength from one another. He gives practical examples of how to encourage one another (including by "picking his sermons to bits"(!)).

    Change, Faith and Prayer

    Change, Faith and Prayer

    Richard, on the first Sunday since the announcement of his leaving All Souls (on March 22nd) to become Archdeacon of Middlesex, speaks about change, faith and God's gift of prayer. He does this through the lens of the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6 - a prayer that reminds us that we are invited to be part of God's agenda (rather than 'enlisting Him on to ours'), that we are to bring everything to God - and that prayer is not meant to be a purely solitary activity.

    [Everyday faith]: Col. 3:12-24 Whatever you do, put on love

    Rachel breezes through the different cultural context of the Colossians and focuses on the consistent principle of being 24/7 mindful of doing all for God. She reflects on how our trivial chores can all be seen as creating order and beauty to help others... a reason to be passionate about what we do in everyday places.

    [Everyday faith]: Genesis 28:10-22 Awakening and response

    Do you have a "holy place"? Somewhere the gap between us and ultimate reality seems thinner... Richard considers the moments when we are aware of the God who is all around us - in waking life and in dreams. From personal experiences (including one featuring a giant spider(!)) he helps us understand how to appreciate God's continual presence and consistency.

    [Everyday faith]: 1 Peter 1:1-2 All the difference in the World

    [Everyday faith]: 1 Peter 1:1-2 All the difference in the World

    Richard introduces the topic of everyday faith and what persistent difference it makes. Comparing to temporary trends he talks about how being known, loved, forgiven and transformed is more than a "that's nice, dear" phase in anybody's life - rather we are blessed to be a blessing and scattered throughout the World to make a difference to those around us.
