Good Housekeeping


…means you keep your blog looking clean and fresh. But it’s also the title for our next sermon series on 1 Timothy…

March 28 • 1 Timothy 1:1-11

The Son He Never Had

Paul writes to his dear friend, and says the second-nicest thing he can, calling Timothy his son. But even more valuable than that…

April 2 • 1 Timothy 1:12-20

Stating the Obvious

Sometimes, the simple truth needs to be said. Even in the old old story, there’s something new to be found.

April 11 • 1 Timothy 2:1-8

A House of Prayer for All Nations

Take the Eight Verse Challenge: what on earth holds all of this together? To figure it out, you’ll need the wisdom of Solomon!

April 18 • 1 Timothy 2:8-15

Living the Quiet Life

Nothing controversial here, right?

No, seriously, we all know relations between men and women are totally straightforward.

Of course they are…

April 25 • 1 Timothy 3:1-16

If all of this was being taught in your church, you’d want to have good elders too, wouldn’t you?!

June 6 • 1 Timothy 6:3-21

False Profits

Money talks, and some people listen. But the cost is too high. Where do you place your trust?


There’s a gap for Mother’s Day – we’ll do something special for that, once I remember the good idea I’ve had and already forgotten! But just because I like it, here’s the descriptor for the day:

Come brother, sister, daughter, son,
Make sure she has a day that’s fun -
So here to church your mum should come!

I’m plagiarising the metre and some of the opening line from somewhere – feel free to submit guesses. Perhaps I could offer some of my points from Byron’s blog as a reward (Byron, here’s your chance to get on your own scoreboard!)…

Yep, that was the idea, though I was presuming on you to update the scoreboard. Still, this is to my knowledge your only opportunity to score some of your own points!
