Last Saturday night in the Belfast Telegraph your blog host answered a few big questions with a few small answers...
Your idea of Heaven?
The Kingdom fully come. The reign of shalom.
Eternity, would it not be boring?
Boredom isn’t a fear I have! Jesus came to bring life in all it’s fullness! My belief is that it is a fulfilment of our humanity and I am never ever bored!
Could God be a woman?
Well, the Bible describes God as such on occasions; The Queen Of The South, a mother hen, a women searching for her lost coin. If men and women are made in the image of God then God is both masculine and feminine. We are different versions of the one God.
Your finest moment of spiritual enlightenment?
When you realise that the God of the Universe loves you as you are. Wow! Grace is the greatest word.
The person alive today you most admire and why?
Nelson Mandela. I’ve been to Robben Island many times and how a man of such grace, mercy and vision came off that prison island is amazing.
If you had just one question to ask God face to face, what would it be?
Why does he leave telling me the most vital thing that should be in Sunday morning’s sermons until I’m preaching it on Sunday morning!
Your favourite book/music/film?
Book: Douglas Coupland’s Girlfriend In A Coma; Film: Bruce Almighty; Record: Over The Rhine’s Ohio... all 3 have enough theology to start a seminar!
