This Sunday Morning On TVNI Channel 350 From 9am This week, in the space of only a few hours, everything has changed. Things will eventually return to normal, but life will look different for the next few months at the very least. I don’t know exactly how to respond when a pandemic hits. But IContinue reading “Watch The Church Of England Sunday Service For Sunday March 22nd Here”
Jono writes: It’s sad that we’ve stopped meeting on Sundays as God’s people. But church doesn’t need to stop for any of us. Jesus said, “For where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them” We know that church isn’t a building, it’s a people – God’s people who meetContinue reading “"Church @ Home" A Resource Prepared By Jono Thomas For The Church Of England On Norfolk Island”
“Worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere” When we’re afraid, we often try to keep busy. When we’re “doing something” we feel as if we’re in control. Like when we “panic buy” at the supermarket. Yet I think it’s critical at the moment thatContinue reading “Chaplain’s Chat: Fear And The Peace Of God”
C. S. Lewis’s words – written 72 years ago – ring with some relevance for us. Just replace “atomic bomb” with “coronavirus”: “In one way we think a great deal too much of the atomic bomb. How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have livedContinue reading ““On Living in an Atomic Age””

The carols that we sing each year do such a magnificent job of underscoring who Jesus is and why He came. For example, in Hark the Herald Angels Sing, we learn that only through “the newborn King” can “God and sinners [be] reconciled.” This Advent we looked beyond the Christmas story, to the Christmas “back story”. We spent three weeksContinue reading “Three Kings”
We are all creatures of habit. The trick is to choose habits that put us in the path of grace. When certain practices like Scripture reading, prayer, and fellowship become second nature to us, we’re more likely to grow in our pursuit of God.
You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of HabitJames K A Smith Our sermon series “Creatures Of Habit” was born from this book. “You Are What You Love” is one of the best books I’ve read this year. I can’t recommend it highly enough. I usually dislike re-reading books, but I will be coming backContinue reading “You Are What You Love”
