Its an all age service at church tomorrow - and I am leading it. This is the last Sunday service of the decade I am really excited that this is a great opportunity to look back at the last ten years and also look forward to the next 10 years. So I have got a quiz lined up and some life journey exercises for everyone to do together. Is the quiz too hard- though - how many faces would you recognize?

With the Copenhagen Summit just days away - I am hoping that Christians around the world will be praying for wisdom for our global leaders as they make decisions about the ecological future of our planet. But I just got an email from the European Leadership Forum explaining that this year's keynote speaker will be Professor Wayne Grudem. I owe an enormous debt to Professor Grudem because his was the first systematic theology that i read cover to cover. It was a really engaging book because he didn't duck out…

Christmas is more than just buying presents, filling up on Turkey and tinsel. Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus. But so that you can focus on the real meaning of Christmas I have done some searching online to find the best ideas I can for great christmas presents that will stand the test of time and keep the kids amused until next Christmas. I have five children so kids christmas presents are my specialised subject... 1. Books We are big fans of our local library - we regularly…

I had a really fun time with a great bunch of students at Cliff College in Derbyshire yesterday. Here is the PDF from my lectures on evangelism. cliff college krish kandiah In the lecture I presented an alternative to pietistic, dualistic presentations of the gospel. I have written this up in a book called Destiny. Cheers Krish

  The mens' 100m sprint has always been the blue ribbon event at any athletics meet. But put Usain Bolt and Tyson Gay in the line up and you have a clash of the titans. The camera zooming into each runner before the race - shows how this event has changed. Only Tyson was relatively focussed, Usain speaks to the camera "I'm ready, are you ready? Let's go!" he then gesticulates and pulls his classic pose before blasting the opposition off the track. Breaking his own world record by some…

It'd been 18 years since my last U2 gig - I tried to hitch hike with a friend to Paris (we ended up catching a bus...) but we did get to see Velvet Undergound supporiting the great U2 on their ZOOROPA tour on a gorgeous day in the open air. Last night I witnessed the 360 event in full flight on u2's opening night of the UK leg of their world tour. Great things about the gig: 1. Visuals The 360 claw is an amazingly imposing structure. It looks like…

I was optimistic about this Nicolas Cage film after watching the trailer. Its been a while since he's been in a good film - actually to be honest I can't remember a film he has done well in. There was the bubble gum fun of Con Air and The Rock. I didn't enjoy Leaving Las Vegas and NEXT was so bad it's not worth mentioning. I have been reminded of Raising Arizona, which was one of the quirky Cohen bros early productions (and I haven't yet seen Adaptation). This film…

It was very weird ending to Sunday's Top Gear as Jeremy Clarkson eulogised rather than gloried in the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. Some are rumouring its the end of the show forever. I wonder if it was more about Clarkson knowing the bitter sweet satisfaction of finding something as close to perfect as he can imagine. There's that weird twinge you feel when you walk down the road with your toddler hand in hand with you skipping down the road with the sun on your face, feeling one day all…

In a Summer that has seen more dog films than I can remember. My top dog films this season are: 1. Hotel for Dogs 2. Bolt 3. Beverly Hills Chihuahua 4. Marley and Me Why does Marley and Me come last? Well I don't think the film makers knew where to pitch it. It could have been a romantic comedy along the lines of the excellent Knocked Up or it could have been a romantic kids movie along the lines of equally excellent Enchanted or it could have been a…

If it's raining outside and the kids need to let off a bit of steam... Here are the ultimate Summer wii games: 1. Mario Power Tennis At under £20 this is a complete bargain and is my favourite wii game at the moment. it's very demanding and you really have to "hit" the ball hard to return some of the serves. i love it and i think the kids think its great too. there are lots of mini games - gimmick courts but the main tennis play is excellent. I…
