Nalbandian Assault Charges possible
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-18-2012
Take a look at the video above and judge for yourselves. Was David Nalbandian's kick off an advertising hoarding that then hit the line judge at the Queen's lawn tennis tournament sufficiently severe to warrant his exclusion from the final? There is even now a story circulating on the Guardian website that there are possible criminal charges to face. What do you think about this ? Does this look like an assault charge to you? The incident does raise again a very interesting challenge in contemporary sport? How do elite…

Spent an encouraging day at the St John's College commissioning service. I popped to the loo to be greeted by this sight... Yes those are greek verb declensions above the urinals. Impressively academic bogs to say the least. Obviously I can't comment on the ladies loos - Hebrew vocab maybe?

Obama gets Funky
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-16-2012
Very impressive editing on this video to help President Obama do his own cover version of the undeniable catchy song by Carly Rae Jepson. Just trying to imagine how long it took them to make it. 12 Million views shows that this kind of a video puts you on the map as a creative and helps Obama's image too. Still remember the day he was elected and the electric atmosphere in Chicago that night. I guess no politician could live up to the hype and expectation that night. Will he…

Keller reflects on Preaching to Brits
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-16-2012
Here's the second of two interview I did with Tim Keller at the OICCU mission this year. The first one on CS Lewis and Keller is here. Which Gospel? These interviews were conducted just after he had given a talk about the cross of Jesus and what it had accomplished. The text he chose to do this from was John 2 the wedding at Canaan. Which I thought was interesting choice of passage. I asked Tim about it and he explained that he had been given pretty strict instructions from…

This Time Tomorrow
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-16-2012
As a church we are really trying to help all ages to get a vision for missional living. We have been experimenting with a tweak on an idea from the London Institute for Contemporary Christinianity called "This Time Tomorrow" Each Sunday at 10.45am while the children are still part of the main service we have been doing a little interview slot with different members of the congregation. We ask three questions: 1. What will you be doing at 10.45am on Monday morning? 2. What's the best thing about being a…

Lego Inception
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-11-2012
LEGO 'INCEPTION' from VFX on Vimeo. Love this video. Just heard Christopher Nolan definitely won't be making a 4th Batman movie. So I am hoping this isnt the closest we get to Inception 2. Here are some reflections on a mission event I did on Inception not long ago.

What would Jesus say to Wayne Rooney
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-09-2012
To mark the beginning of the European Football championship I am preaching on "What would Jesus say to Wayne Rooney?" Planning to make it conversational and interactive. Looking at an overview of Rooney's life. Here are the headlines of the talk: 1. "Go on my Son" There's no denying Rooney's incredible footballing talent. There is great poetry and beauty to his play. A trawl on youtube will give you some amazing mashups of his skills. Following a similar line to that of Erick Lidell in the film Chariots of Fire…

pray4syria – stop the bullets
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-08-2012
As the news of another massacre in Syria hits our screens,it is time for us to be raise concerted prayers to God. It seems that 27 children were among the dead in the attack on a small village. This lead Ban Ki Moon the Geneneral Secretary of the United Nations to state that the Syrian regime has: "lost its fundamental humanity" He also said that the Syrian government has lost its legitimacy to govern. But it still seems we will be waiting a long time for UN intervention. God often…
