Jesus grew

Jesus is not a visitor.  Jesus is one of us.  He doesn’t visit us, he dwells with us.  Jesus doesn’t come and go, he came to stay.

I’ve had a website since the late 1990s, and it has changed rather dramatically over the years.  This section contains some of my favourite bits of my old sites, and some of the most viewed.  (At least, it will when it is finished!)

I was born in Oxford while my father was doing his vicar training at Wycliffe Hall – where I also did my own vicar training, twenty-three years later!  As I grew up in a Christian family, God has always been quite naturally at the centre of my life.

Quotations

“Do you want to believe in the living Christ?” says Barth. “We may believe in him only if we believe in his corporeal resurrection. This is the content of the New Testament. We are always free to reject it, but not to modify it, nor to pretend that the New Testament tells something else. We may accept or refuse the message, but we may not change it.”
