Jesus Comes Aboard the Ship of Fools

Jesus Comes Aboard the Ship of Fools

A Case of Mistaken Identity

A Case of Mistaken Identity

Welcome to Easter Day! No matter who you are or where you’ve come from, we are so glad you’re here. 10 or so years ago, just after we returned to Christ Church from being away in Birmingham, I greeted a young couple at the back of the church one Easter Sunday morning. They had moved […]
