I have a confession to make… Paradoxological Thought #5
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-28-2014
Big news in the pop world as the clean cut" One Direction" boy band members seem to have been caught on camera smoking marijuana. The discrepancy between their fresh faces, boy next door pop videos has set the tabloids ablaze with rumours. An incriminating video which apparently has "Louis Tomlinson, 22 explaining that ‘So here we are, leaving Peru. Joint lit. Happy days!’ The picture and quotation come from this report in the Daily Mail. The child stars who go through a rebellious stage to prove they are grown ups…

Simple Simon Says… Make Disciples
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-27-2014
Francis Chan certainly has a direct way of challenging the way we go about fulfilling the mission Christ commissioned his church to complete. Francis Chan - Making Disciples from Verge Network on Vimeo. Of course the challenge is what does disciple making actually look like. I have been thinking about this for a while now, see the suite of resources we have collated here. I have been thinking on how we create disciples that are not just clones of celebrity church leaders or so fragile that their faith falls apart during…

A matter of perspective
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-27-2014
I couldn't believe these amazing street art photos from: justsomething.co Its an amazing skill, lining everything up so that from just the right angle these 2D pictures suddenly take on a whole new dimension. It reminded me of the opening lines of a Tale of Two Cities "it was the best of times, it was the worst of times" was the French revolution the best thing to have happened to France - it depended who you were and where you stood. That got me thinking about  the most significant crisis in…

Paradoxological Thought for the Day #4
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-27-2014
There's been a lot of debate recently about which books should be included in the English Literature syllabus. "To Kill a Mocking Bird" is out and so is "The Grapes of Wrath" as they are not English enough. What is often missing in these debates is the way that English literature has been shaped by the Bible. So many of the key tropes and themes in our literature have been shaped and formed by the biblical narrative. For young people to fully grasp English literature they need biblical literacy too.…

Paradoxological Thought for the Day #3
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-26-2014
People grow up quickly. Looking at the actors from Harry Potter on the first day of filming and then again on the last day is a strange experience. We all watched Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint grow up in front of us. We feel older and wiser as we recognise this fact but we also wonder where the time went. If you are a believer I wonder how long it has been since you became a Christian?  I look back on the last 27 years since a friend…

Paradoxologial Thought for the Day #2
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-25-2014
I love the strapline for the latest Adidas World Cup advertising campaign: "All in or Nothing." It reminds me of my secondary school PE teacher. I wrote about him recently in a Christianity Today online article. "I loved the way he wanted my rough comprehensive school in Brighton to have a rugby (for U.S. readers: think American Football but without the body armor and helmets) team that could take on the well-to-do public schools in our area. I was virtually blind without my glasses on, but I could run fast, and…

My new book Paradoxology: Why Christianity was never meant to be simple  is aimed to help you think more deeply about the big questions of life and faith. As a little audio taster of paradoxology I am pleased to be able to bring you (courtesy of Premier Christian Radio) a daily paradoxological thought for the next 5 days.  Each is about 2 minutes long and gives you a little insight into the heart off the book. The story you are about to hear is about as sad as it gets... (come…

LIFE for Good
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-16-2014
Foster caring has been one of the most difficult but one of the most rewarding things our family has done together. Welcoming children into our home when we know very little about what has happened to them in their past, and when we have little idea what the future holds is a painful privilege. Moving children who we have loved deeply on to their new, or sometimes old, families is another painful privilege. Whatever the circumstances, these children connect us to the heart of God who is Father to the…

Make the Most of Father’s Day
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-15-2014
There are so many children waiting in care for a father in their lives.  Some have had to be removed from their parents because of neglect or abuse. Some have never known a father's love. This father's day help us to inspire men to step forward to make a difference to vulnerable children lives. I spend a lot of my time  travelling the UK speaking with churches about the need but also the clear biblical mandate for us to care for the vulnerable in our communities. Every where I go I…

5 Reasons to wish Wired Happy Birthday 
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-15-2014
I have been a regular subscriber to Wired for a few years now. It’s a fantastic magazine to read. Here’s what I like Design In my estimation Wired is at the cutting edge of design, I read the magazine for inspiration on lay out and visual presentation. The quality of the photography and infographics make the magazine a pleasure to read . Balance There’s a fantastic balance between meatier – in depth articles (helpfully arranged at the back of the magazine) and lighter easy to digest news, reviews and how…
