Jesus said the kingdom of heaven is like a king who arranged for a marriage for his son, and then when it was all ready, he sent out his servants to call all those who were invited to the wedding, but they weren’t willing to come. So he sent out more servants and he said, “Tell those people that I invited I’ve already prepared the dinner. The oxen and fatted cattle are killed, and everything’s ready, so come. It’s time for the wedding.” But they joked about it and wouldn’t listen to the servants. Some of them went off to work on their farms, others went off to their businesses, some of them even grabbed the servants, were mean…

In the reading today from the gospel of St Matthew, Chapter 8, Verses 5 to 13, a Roman centurion is seeking 2,000 years ago what we each seek today—a relationship to Christ. Just as this centurion asked Christ to intervene in the life of his dangerously ill servant, so we too can ask Christ to intervene in anything that is not good in our own lives. We can ask Christ to intervene in our lives because of our faults and because of problems that we are not able to solve with our own wills and our own resources. Christ does not expect any of us to be perfect people. What Christ does ask is that we are honest with ourselves and with Him, that…

“ … if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
Hearing this you could be forgiven for thinking:- “There must be more to salvation than this!  Believing in the resurrection and telling others about Jesus are both vitally important, but not the whole story … surely?!”
The Apostle St. James, the Lord’s step brother might be thought to agree with you.  In his epistle, St. James says:-
“But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith…

In the evangelical world, a young and talented team of musicians have become the new hymn writers who are celebrated for providing a much needed antidote to the often shallow and monotonous praise songs that get projected onto screens in contemporary worship services across the country. Keith and Kristyn Getty along with Stewart Townend are the writers and composers of such modern day hymns as “By Faith”, “The Power of the Cross”, and “O Church Arise.” However, their most popular composition is “In Christ Alone” and it is the object of some controversy in the news recently.

When I turned recently to my window on the world (aka “Facebook”), I discovered that the Next Big Noise in the cultural world of the west is a book recently written by Reza Aslan entitled, Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth.  Mr. Aslan, as one might guess by his name, is a Muslim by faith, and, as he repeatedly reminds us in an interview, a scholar and professor by trade.  The interview to which I refer is the one given on Fox Network’s online programme “Spirited Debate”, in which Lauren Green interviewed him about his book (or perhaps I should say “interrogated him”, since she came on so aggressively that…
