The Peaceable Kingdom

Meant to post a few of these back when I was reading through it but I’m only getting round to it now.

To become followers of Jesus we must, like him, be dispossessed of all that we think gives us power over our own lives and those of others. Unless we learn to relinquish our presumption that we can ensure the significance of our lives, we are not capable of the peace of God’s kingdom.

and another favourite

The question “what ought I to do” tempts us to assume that moral situations are abstracted from the kind of people and history we have come to be. But that is simply not the case. The “situations” we confront are such only because we are first a certain kind of people.

Fewer Moving Parts

I found these things lying in the floor of the engine compartment the other week when I was changing the fluid in the radiator (as you do…)

Bizarrely it seems they had anything to do with the Volvo failing its NCT a few weeks later.

It’ll have to go and see someone who knows what they’re doing now.
