Not too late for a new theological adventure
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 08-25-2014
What a Summer it has been. I have just come back from Momentum a massive conference for 20 somethings that takes place in Shepton Mallet . Its the last of the events in the New Wine &  Soul Survivor family of conferences on the site this season. [caption id="attachment_8640" align="aligncenter" width="474"] Packed in for an exposition from Ephesians at LPO.[/caption] It will have been one of the last major events that I speak at as an Evangelical Alliance Director as I have just taken on two new jobs.

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…

Teaching Paradox

I am a big fan of the creative sermon series. By taking a fresh angle we can help the congregation encounter God in scripture in ways that will equip them for the life of faith.  My latest book Paradoxology comes out on the 10th of April and as some of my other books have been helpful to churches as a interesting teaching series I thought I would give you a heads up on how a church could get the best out of the book. Paradoxology aims to help Christians to life-proof…

The Power of Paradox
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-19-2014
I used to fear paradoxes – those difficult parts of our faith that cause us to double take when we read them in the Bible or set off questions in our mind when we reflect on them. For example: Why does an all-sufficient God ask so much of his followers? Why does the God of all love apparently command genocide on the Canaanites? Why does the ever-present God often feel so far away?To name but three. I used to avoid paradoxes hoping they would go away. But having spent the…
