Good morning. Today is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement in the Jewish faith. In Israel it’s a holiday. It’s all about leaving past failures behind and starting afresh, and this is symbolised by dressing in white. There are special synagogues services. One of the stories often read is about Moses, who receives the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai. Meanwhile the Israelites are already breaking the commandments by worshipping a golden calf which they’ve made themselves. Moses acts as a mediator for the people to prevent them from being destroyed. In Jesus we see something deeper: that God Himself loves us so much that he gave His Son, both as the ultimate Mediator and as a once-for-all sacrifice guaranteeing full atonement for all who believe. ...

Good morning. When it comes to the business of guilt and forgiveness I find we’re a very mixed bunch. Some of us find it hard to see any serious faults in our own characters, and others beat ourselves up over the slightest thing. Some are very sensitive to criticism whilst others have a much thicker skin. King David would have got away with adultery and murder had it not been for someone who was brave enough to confront him about both. He then confessed at once, and the result is one of the most moving psalms in the whole Bible. It’s a song we can all relate to. Here’s how it starts: David crying out for God’s forgiveness, and in doing so, receiving it. How important it is not only to confess our sins but also to accept and believe that we are truly forgiven. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning. Hide-and-seek is a great children’s game. However one of our children, who shall remain nameless, once took it a bit far. Bored after church one day, this child plus little friend decided to hide in a dark corner under the stairs. When it was time to leave, us four parents ended up scouring the whole premises looking for our pesky kids. Finally getting panicky, we decided it was time to call the police, when two small faces appeared out of the darkness. I’m sure there was a stern telling-off, though arguably it was just as much our fault. One of the wonderful things about God is His boundless mercy and forgiveness. “Who is a pardoning God like Thee?” says the old hymn “or who has grace so rich and free?” Don’t hide in the darkness; come into His light. ...

Good morning. Did you see Emma Raducanu’s astonishing victory at the US Open Tennis championship on Saturday night? It was quite something to watch. One of the things which always amuses me about high-profile tennis matches is the way the line judges shout out “FAULT!” when the players serve the ball the wrong side of the line. I’m not sure I’d like my own faults to be pointed out quite so loudly. But just as in sport, so in life: facing up to our faults is vital to a successful game. This week includes the Day of Atonement in the Jewish faith – more of that on Thursday - so it’s a good time for us to think about this. Maybe we can start by asking ourselves what mistakes, shortcomings, transgressions and sins we have been guilty of recently. Do we need to confess? ... See MoreSee Less
