Blind Chance

Because the designer of this contraption does not appear in the video. I therefore do not believe there was a designer. A s designer is just a figment of our imaginations, because we have the mistaken sense that there needs to be designer. Perhaps it is due to problems we had with our father's not playing enough lego with us as children. I therefore assume that this lego "machine" exists because of the random collation of lego bricks. After all given enough time any possible configuration of lego bricks is…

How People Tend to XXXX Things Up – Unapologetic Book Blog 2
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-21-2012
Strangely for a blog about the book "Unapologetic" I have to apologise for being a bit slow on the whole read as you blog / blog as you read thing. I am in the middle of a deadline crisis for a book I am writing and so not getting the time I would like to enjoy this book outloud with you. Chapter 2 of Spufford's spiffing book is on Sin and Guilt, which he acknowledges are such toxic words in our western culture that he has created a new term…

Coming for me
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-09-2012
I am very keen we find ways to help our young people face the opposition they face at school and work for their faith. One significant way I think we can help is to connect our churches with the challenges facing the persecuted church. I just came across this video from Open Doors (its been out there a while, but perhaps like me you missed it). Hope it helps your young people face their challenges whilst standing shoulder to shoulder with brothers and sisters facing even more challenging situations. Let…

Adoption Songs
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-09-2012
Had a look for some children's songs about adoption and sadly there are not many of them are in our current hymnody in the UK. I asked on twitter for ideas and after 15 people told me "Father God I wonder" I began to get a bit worried. Thanks to some of my twitter friends I found a few more. So here's a list of songs that are not widely sung (but could be) to help us appreciate our adoption into God's family. My hope is it will soften more…

Unapologetic Book Blog 1
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-08-2012
This month I am inviting you to read along with me the new book by Francis Spufford: "Unapologetic" Here's my impressions on chapter 1. Feel free to join in - its quite an easy read. Well I have never read anything quite like this before. I am really enjoying the book. Spufford reads like a Christian version of Julian Baginni the author of a Short guide to Atheism. Just like Baggini he is affable, polemical, engaging. Spufford, is an incredibly effective author - definitely someone I'd like to have a…

Skyfall and Adele
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-04-2012
The Bond marketting machine is in full overdrive now. Must admit I thought it was a clever move having Adele do the theme. What do you make of this? Does it show Adele to have a voice that is pale imitation of Shirley Bassey - it doesn't grab me as a Goldfinger replacement as the most memorable Bond theme ever. Growing up A view to a Kill was my favourite - what is yours?

Adoption Sunday Pilot
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-03-2012
We are running an "Adoption Sunday" event on Sunday 4th of November aimed at churches in Oxford. This is trial for a national role out in 2013. But if your church would like to join in - we'd love to have your help. Adoption Sunday is an opportunity to let the whole church engage with the fact that there are 4000 children waiting to be adopted and 8000 more foster placements needed. We believe the church needs to play its part in helping to meet this need. We need to…

Unapologetic
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 10-02-2012
I'd like to invite you on a reading journey over the next 5 weeks. I am going to be reading and blogging about a new book called "Unapologetic." Let me tell you the context of reading this book. I love being part of my book group. Its a group of men who came together , originally because we all had children at the same school. But has grown and developed over the last six years. We are very mixed group of people from very different walks of life, some Christians…
