A look at Judas and his betrayal.  How does Judas' story impact on us?

Sometimes the smallest details from the most familiar stories in the Bible can cause our eyes to open the widest when we consider them from a fresh perspective.

Take an intentional stance on Prayer, tips to praying intentionally, specifically and persistent.

Making prayer part of daily life and not a tick box exercise.

Worship intentionally. How praise can lead to worship, the benefits of worship; how to worship and worship as a lifestyle.

Part of the reason is the portion size. - we all like a big plate of food.
 
Some of it was the richness of the food. We like the sweet things at Christmas.
 
A lot of it was that at Christmas we have an attitude of ‘As well as and not instead of’ -
 
We have sausages in bacon as well as the meat.
 
We have sausage meat stuffing as well as the pigs in blankets, as well as the meat. You get the pictureWe tend to have things as well as rather than instead.
 
If I was a dietician I may tell you that this is not a good Idea. Fortunately, I am not a dietician. I’m a pastor and I want to suggest that at Christmas. This is good.
 
The ideas of having an ‘as well as’ attitude, of bigger portions, of richer helpings and is a healthy thing - may be not be good for your waistline but for your soul.

Heaven and earth intersect. Through the door that is Jesus we have access to heanly storehouses and yet we treat this like a reveolving door - catching a glimpse and returning back from the direction we came.

Looking at communion as an actor of commemoration and why we are called to remember and need to remember.
