Summer Reading 2014
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 07-05-2014
Books are such a wonderful gift and what could be more relaxing and refreshing that using some of the Summer holiday to get some reading in. Here are some of my Summer recommended reads: Goodbye to All That - Robert Graves This is a fantastic firsthand account of life as an officer in World War 1. Graves writes very poetically and movingly about the both the horror and the madness of life in the trenches and how he lived afterwards. It is controversial as some parts of the account are contested.…

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…

5 Things I enjoyed about Word Alive
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-15-2014
Its been a while since i have been to Word Alive so it was a pleasure to drive up to North Wales to take part in this year's event. 1. Opportunity to hang out with three Nigerian Bishops The highlight of my week at Word Alive was an evening laughing and swapping stories with three Nigerian Bishops. Each one of them doing Stirling work in a country which has some 20 million Anglicans. They shared frustrations with me about the level of wealth in some Nigerian churches and church planting…

Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-04-2014
I am running a seminar at Word Alive with the subject: Digital Discipleship : serving Christ on Social Media. Here's the blurb for the seminar: Discover the opportunities that Facebook and Twitter bring for mission and discipleship. Start the conversation early by following @krishk and tweeting a question using #Socialdisciple As I was preparing the seminar this week, I came across these images of poor old Ella Birchenough from Dover who dropped her Blackberry down a drain and then removed the drain cover and jumped inside to try and retrieve…

Global Evangelicals
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-25-2014
First published in Anvil March 2014 The Global Diffusion of Evangelicalism, Brian Stanley, IVP “Dwell on the past and you will lose an eye; forget the past and you will lose both eyes.” Often evangelicals have a nostalgic view of the past, whether it is those of us who believe the Reformation was the high water mark of Christianity or those of us who discovered the worship revival of the 1970s, evangelicals often enjoy reminiscing of better days. But a Cyclops still has an advantage over the blind so it…

5 reasons why I love Rev
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-19-2014
I had a chance encounter on the train yesterday and ended up in a conversation with the chief writer of Rev;  James Woods.  It was such a pleasure to be able to tell him face to face some of the things I appreciated about the show.  I asked him what hope there was of another series after this one and he said something pretty final happens in the last episode that would make that pretty difficult.  So we should relish this television show which has been sold by the BBC…

Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 02-24-2014
When you are  in LA on a Sunday morning where do you go for a church gathering? I decided to visit Mosaic Church's Downtown LA service to see what I could learn and if I could be a blessing. Here are 5 things I enjoyed about the church. 1. Branding There's a place for demonstrating who you through your visuals and in LA a city of art and culture I can imagine if you are trying to reach young creatives then you put a lot of thought into your visuals.…

What could the church learn from the Bridge?
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 02-01-2014
There has been some interesting conversations buzzing around the blogosphere arguing that the Scandinavian crime resurgence owes its life to the Christian heritage of those nations. I am interested in the other side. So for a bit of fun I wondered if there is  anything that the church can take away from the Bridge? 1. INCLUSIVITY I love the way that Saga Noren is fully accepted and integrated into the team. Saga is socially awkward and has been described as being on the autistic spectrum.  The deep friendship she enjoys with…
