Our sermon series for this summer is taken from a book called ‘Paradoxology’ by Krish Kandiah, President of London School of Theology and Chair of the Theological Advisory Panel for Tearfund.
This book confronts the big questions of life through the stories of the bible’s heroes of faith. Krish Kandiah makes a compelling case that is only by wrestling with the challenges of faith- rather than trying to pin them down or push them away – that we can really come to know God, individually and together.
