  • What We Missed In...Prayer and the Logic of Love (5)

    21 APR 2024 · We conclude our mini-series with a dive into some ancient habits and postures of prayer which are orientated toward being attentive to the sacred wonder in the ordinary and the everyday. We return to Nick Cave for some helpful examples and perhaps a surprising form of music as a metaphor of prayer.

  • The Christian Life in Paradox - Hope and Disappointment

    14 APR 2024 · Continuing our series The Christian Life in Paradox, this talk explores, in a very personal way, living with hope and disappointment alongside each other and the implications for our faith journey. Trigger warning: this talk covers issues of grief, illness, loss and mental health challenges and is emotionally raw in places. If you are impacted by any of the themes in this talk, the leadership team of BGMC would be happy to talk to you further.

  • What We Missed In...Prayer and the Logic of Love (4)

    7 APR 2024 · What does God's presence and personhood in the world look like? That is the question we have been grappling with. We are seeking to be re-enchanted by the sacred divine presence - to imagine where and how God is. But what habits do we need to adopt and what posture do we need to make? Perhaps our language and our sight have been deficient? What can the experience of Jacob and Moses offer as a way forward to being more intentionally attentive to sacred meaning in the world?

  • What We Missed In....The Empty Tomb

    31 MAR 2024 · The empty tomb of Jesus offered very little comfort or consolation to the disciples when they first encountered it. It was Mary Magdalene who refused to accept what she saw that first Easter morning. In this brief talk, we will reflect on how Mary's posture enabled her to encounter the risen Jesus which gives us an insight into what we need to do the fathom the depths of this new reality.

  • The Christian Life in Paradox - Fasting and Feasting

    10 MAR 2024 · The Christian life is a paradox. Today we explore the metaphors and practice of fasting and feasting and how they can be understood in the Christian life. How do these binary concepts exist in faith and how can we take them seriously as we follow Jesus?

  • What We Missed In...Prayer and the Logic of Love (3)

    3 MAR 2024 · How does God work in the world in response to prayer? That is the question we are grappling with in this mini-series of WWMI. Today, we get deep into the weeds about God's 'all-knowingness' - what is the 'all' that God knows and what type of future does God know? What are the consequences for prayer? Again, we apply the 'logic of love' to our understanding of these questions and explore how this relates to our grasp of what is certain and what is possible

  • The Christian Life in Paradox - Rest and Wrestling

    25 FEB 2024 · Looking at examples of the lived experience of the rest and wrestling of faith, this talk explores attitudes towards both experiences and how they can hold together in the paradoxical dance that is faith.

  • What We Missed In...Prayer and the Logic of Love (2)

    18 FEB 2024 · We have been using the phrase, 'The Logic of Love' to describe God's actions in the world and the role of prayer to bring about his will. Love 'pre-conditions' God's power and knowledge. Love is the only form of God's power. If love is first in God's nature, then his will and actions in the world will allow and consent to creaturely freedom. God is subject to the variables and 'say-so's' in a creation made in love and by love. How then does God work and why is the variable of prayer so important?

  • What We Missed In...Prayer and the Logic of Love (1)

    11 FEB 2024 · Why do we pray? How does God intervene in our lives and world? If we want to have confidence in prayer and in a God who works in the world, we need to address these questions. To gain a glimpse into the possibilities that exist in prayer, we introduce here two concepts that will define our response: the nature of God and the type of world that we live in. In the disenchanted culture of our predominantly scientific, secular and sceptical Western world, how can the Logic of Love help us navigate challenging questions?
