Learning from women about leadership
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 08-02-2014
I know it’s a little ironic, but I have been asked to lead a seminar about women in leadership. Full disclosure, I am not and never have been a woman. I have decided to take the opportunity and to look for ways that women’s voices can be heard in the seminar. I am also hoping to co-chair the seminar with a woman. I decided to do the seminar because I believe in the conference that asked me to speak - they have a brilliant heart and a wonderful vision and…

Spirit of Paradox
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 07-19-2014
It is not every day you get to meet someone who has helped to start a genuine movement of change and restoration.  So you can imagine my excitement when it came to spending time with David and Mary Pytches - the couple who helped to birth both New Wine and Soul Survivor. David and Mary returned to the UK with four young daughters after serving as cross cultural missionaries in Chile.  Unsure what God wanted them to do they looked for a base in Chorleywood, which offered education facilities for…

A sofa-isticated faith
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 07-18-2014
With a major row brewing in the church on the assisted suicide bill in the House of Lords, the Evangelical Alliance is encouraging people to pose this and other difficult and seemingly contradictory questions about Christianity. Dr Krish Kandiah, executive director of churches in mission, is tackling the most difficult questions that one can possibly raise about Christianity in the next week when he invites questioners to join him on the ‘paradoxology sofa’. “The issue of assisted suicide is engaging widespread debate on Twitter and in the pages of the national…

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…

A Paradoxological Thought for the Day #1
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-24-2014
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…
