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. It gave me…

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…

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…

9 reasons why churches should apply for lottery funding
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 01-28-2014
So here's a moral dilemma that I'd like to explore with you. I am trying to explore a theological perspective on whether it is right for a church to apply for and receive lottery funding for its social and community work (it cannot receive funding for worship or evangelistic work). Here are the best arguments I can think of for how a Christian might justify  applying for lottery funding. The counter arguments are here.  The arguments are not necessarily ones I hold to - I am simply trying to build…

Tell me if I am out of line and don’t know how to take a joke. But this video crossed a line for me. The evangelical world has always been polarised in fact it has been a trait of evangelicals that believers holding a diversity of opinions on a whole range of issues can find unity around the gospel. In fact to be evangelical means a commitment to unity across denominational and tribal lines – because that is the whole point of the evangelical movement and always has been. One…

Tomorrow sees the next in our series of national consultations on helping the church gain Confidence in the Gospel. NT Wright (who was in the middle of editing his new book on Paul) was kind enough to make time to speak to us to give his views on the subject "What is the Gospel?" watch this short film and let me know what you think? How does Tom's approach challenge your own? Is there an emphasis you think he missed out? [vimeo link="http://vimeo.com/54601664" width="590" height="332"] There are some helpful resources…

Theology of Mission
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 11-12-2012
I was honoured to spend time with the St Miletus students today as they have their first day of lectures at their brand new St Jude's site. I was lecturing on an "An Introduction to a Theology of Mission." I have uploaded my slides for the students: (they might not make a lot of sense if you weren't there as I am firm believer in the interactive teaching method.) If you want to find out more about the gospel I was talking about see here. St melitus from Krish Kandiah…

Bog Standard

Spent an encouraging day at the St John's College commissioning service. I popped to the loo to be greeted by this sight... Yes those are greek verb declensions above the urinals. Impressively academic bogs to say the least. Obviously I can't comment on the ladies loos - Hebrew vocab maybe?
