One of great value

Jesus said: “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.” On Sunday night I painted a pearl to represent what the Kingdom of God is like. It’s a hand holding a pearl…

“I am the Resurrection and The Life.”

Last night we had our monthly ‘Encounter’ service at Cambourne Church, near Cambridge. It’s a monthly worship and teaching gathering that emphasises the ‘have a go at using the gifts of the Spirit.’ There’s space to dance and express oneself in worship.

Love’s Embrace

Last week at our monthly Encounter service artist Kate Green painted something very powerful- the message matched so wonderful with our guest speaker and singer/songwriter Liv Comley. Liv’s message was about experiencing Jesus’ love more and pressing into knowing God.

God is like a mother who comforts us 

“For you will feed and be satisfied at her comforting breasts; you will drink deeply and delight in her overflowing abundance… As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you…” A couple of weeks before my Dad died I was drawn to the above scripture in the last chapter of Isaiah. The comfort…
