The gospel isn’t… about being comfortable

29th March 2018

A new series on what the gospel isn't, and what it is.

The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S Lewis introduces us to the character of the lion, Aslan, the “king” of Narnia. In The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Aslan sacrifices his life in place of Edmund, (the boy who betrayed the rest of his family) and t[...]

A look at the charismatic conservatism of Johann Blumhardt

Two common features of today’s charismatic Christianity are a tendency to hype and triumphalism and a shift of focus from Church to the individual.
