Holmes’ Homily

Cometh the hour, cometh the man

This week marked the fiftieth anniversary of Winston Churchill’s burial. He was the only common man to be granted a state funeral in the twentieth century. People travelled from all over the world to watch the event. One man who had travelled from America had taken out a loan to be there and when asked…

Loughborough Church - Three ways to kickstart your new year

Three ways to kickstart the New Year

You stare at the calendar on the wall, your diary or now days on your phone, a little bewildered. How has another year passed? What happened to the good intentions of last year? There was so much to achieve. Instead goals were replaced with disappointment. What will make this year different? What will propel you…

Loughborough Church - Amazing things are on the horizon

Amazing things are on the Horizon

For the past few years someone has bought me a desk pad with a quote on for each day, now I must admit that I don’t always remember to change it every day but I do catch up periodically. I save the ones that I like and make a little pile on the desk. There…

Rubber Nosed Christians

Now I know you have already got a picture in your mind if you have a pictorial mind like mine. It’s a bit like one of those ink blot things that Psychologist spot in front of you and say what do you see? You know the thing where there is just this blob of ink…

Loughborough Church - You'll never walk alone

You’ll never walk alone

If you didn’t know it by now, I’m a Liverpool supporter, yes through good and bad times. You don’t change your team, you stick with them. “You’ll never walk alone” has been the club’s anthem for over fifty years, they adopted it in the 1960’s. Throughout the club’s history they have come to realise the strength…

Loughborough Church - Faith and Obedience

Faith and Obedience

Faith and obedience go hand in hand, they work together. Faith is never a passive word; it always requires us to take action. I’ve been here before Joshua had been there before, a place called Kadesh Banrnea; it was on the banks of the Jordon River. It was a familiar place; he was well acquainted…

Loughborough Church - Brick upon brick, stone upon stone

Brick Upon Brick, Stone Upon Stone

Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Don’t you just love verses like this? Or maybe you hate reading them. Because love it or hate it, they challenge you to walk into a different space with God. What seems impossible to man is not impossible for God. Jesus also said: Jesus said to…

Loughborough Church - Open My Eyes

Open my eyes

I have been a Christian for more than 37 years now and I guess one of the blessings about that is you can see how things have changed. Change is inevitable; we either embrace or resist it. Some changes are good and others, well,  “the Jury is out” as they say. I have sung a lot…

Loughborough Church - Bold Moves

Bold Moves

We all have heroes in the Bible for one reason or another – their character, their faith, their selfless nature, and many other reasons why we look to them for inspiration. We see in them something we aspire to be.  Perhaps they have done something that is out of the ordinary. They challenge us to…
