The World Cup – a matter of life and death?

By the time you read this, England’s World Cup dream in Brazil will be over.  Finished.  Done and dusted.  After the obligatory period of national mourning, national moaning begins. If there is a silver lining, it is that we can now spend more time exercising rather than watching sport on TV. For others, we...

The End Is Just The Beginning…

‘Heaven is a place, a place where nothing ever happens’.  So sang the Talking Heads in 1979.  But how would we know one way or the other? As believers we go to the Bible to understand how God has intervened in history and to know His will for today, but God’s written Word also...

We soon established that we are very committed about: ‘Encouraging...

A Personal Pentecost

‘Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit’ (Galatians 5:25) Given this has been Cambray’s Bible verse and motto for 2015, and it is now November, I wonder the extent to which we have each found ourselves living and walking life with the help and power of God...

All one in Christ Jesus?

‘Living above, with the saints we love, that will be glory; Living below, with the saints we know, that’s another story!’ You have probably heard this old ditty, which tends to make us smile because we all understand that getting along with others in the church can at times be challenging. We are all...

Venturing into ‘deeper waters’

‘I hear, and I forget I see, and I remember I do, and I understand’ Jesus called disciples to follow him, not just to believe in Him. His training school involved teaching followers with words (they heard), as well as showing the power of His words (they saw). But in Luke 10, for example,...

Receive ‘The Daily Remembrancer’ direct via email

James Smith wrote these daily meditations on God’s Word as an act of love and support for his people in the 19th century. As one of his successors at Cambray, I have set myself the task of re-typing them, slightly updating some of the language, with the hope that many of the Cambray church...
