I was listening this week to one of the radio talk back programs where the host was reflecting on a number of tragedies that he had become aware of recently.  One of which was the serious injury experienced by a young professional rugby league player last weekend, the result of which seems to be that […]

Could It Be That Jesus Got It Wrong

Occasionally the attitudes of some churchgoing people can seem to imply that maybe Jesus got a few things wrong. What you might say?

Our World Is Not The World

In a few days we will celebrate Christmas Day, and part of that for many will be to attend a Christmas service here at CrossRoads.  We will sit in a comfortable building, on comfortable seats, and after our time of corporate worship go out and have a nice Christmas morning tea.  Following that most of […]

A Christmas Paradox – Finding Meaning In Nothing And Nothing In Meaning

It is interesting to reflect on the coming ‘holiday season’ and its two major events, Christmas and New Year.  Particularly to reflect on their meaning—Christmas from which every attempt is being made to remove meaning and New Year into which every attempt is made to import meaning.  Firstly, it is worth noting that the current […]
