Jesus The Revolutionary: The Kings Cross (Mark 9-16)

Jesus The Revolutionary: The King’s Cross (Mark 9-16)

Many Christians have never taken a moment to consider what ‘discipleship’ (following Jesus) is really all about. They might be good at ‘church going’ and do lots of ‘religious things’ including praying and trying to live a good life, but they have never taken seriously the words in Mark 8:34-35 where Jesus says;  “Whoever wants to be […]

Abortion – 5 reasons to engage

Abortion. A divisive word. But a significant current issue. We might be tempted to put our heads in the sand and not engage with this and there might be plenty of reasons why we could feel that way. For example: It’s none of my business what other people think. I don’t want to come across […]

Christ City Life: Engaging Online

There is a dog playing bongos on my phone. All those hours of truly pioneering engineering, hours of redesign, consultancy, product testing and retesting, budgeting and outright sheer creative brilliance from those engineers at Apple, and this is what I’m using my phone for. Dogs. Playing. Bongos. Sorry, Steve Jobs. It’s never been easier to […]

8th Amendment

The 8th Amendment Debate

The topic of abortion needs no introduction. It is all over the media currently and is sadly littered with name-calling and emotive language. There is often a lack of clarity and open discussion in the issue and instead it is brought down to a tit-for-tat slanging match. Pro-life campaigners are nothing more than ageing fuddy-duddies […]

How the CCC Internship/Apprenticeship will build your career

It’s very common, from as early as the Junior Cert, to be asking yourself the question: “What do I want to do in life and what career should I have?” Yet many people when they finish school or college still haven’t been able to answer that question.

Esther: Peasant Princess

Esther: Peasant Princess

Morally ambiguous characters. Gratuitous drunkenness, sex and violence. Throwing a dice to make decisions. Impaling people on spikes. Attempted annihilation of the Jewish race and no reference of God at all. What the heck is the book of Esther doing in the Bible!? I am glad you asked. The Absence Of God The book of Esther […]
