Why are our hearts breaking for flight MH
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 07-18-2014
With apocalyptic footage of a Ukranian field now filling our screens I wanted to try and reflect on why the shooting down of flight MH17 has had such an impact on us. I am thinking out loud trying to process what I am feeling and so am happy to have your comments and suggestions re-shape what I have written here. It’s personal I have many family members in Malaysia, many of whom travel to and from Europe regularly. My first thought was to phone or facebook family and see if…

Social Media and School
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-10-2014
Had a very helpful and interesting day with TISCA – The Independent Schools Chaplaincy Association.  We were thinking about Redeeming Technology especially looking at Social Media and the lives of teenagers. The teenagers in question are students in some of the most exclusive schools in the country and the chaplains are playing a very strategic role in the lives of these schools. The day kicked off with an excellent talk on understanding the impolications of our belief in the Kingdom of God for online life from Rev Libby Talbot. I…

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…

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.

The story you are about to hear is about as sad as it gets... (come…

Christianity was never meant to be simple
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-04-2014
Really excited to show you this little video ( some may even say  its a mini-movie).  We made it to help people realise that asking big questions about your faith is a good thing. You can pre-order Paradoxology: Why Christianity was never meant to be simple right now or if you are at Spring Harvest or World Alive you can buy it right away from the bookshop. We had great fun making it so special thanks to: Lucas  who plays young old me. Zach  who plays the friend. Ruth who…
