This week we continue week 5 of the Journey of Lent, a journey of 40 days through the Wilderness with Jesus Christ towards Easter. We go on a Journey of New Life with Jesus through the wilderness as the Holy Spirit takes dry bones and breaths new life.
It was a year ago today that the Prime Minister announced Lockdown measures. Today we have been asked at 12 noon to reflect and remember. As Christians we also have the greatest privilege of being able to pray today as we have been doing throughout the year.
Today on Tides Rev. Tony Davidson helps focus our thoughts on God’s word.

Update from a HeartCry missionary in #Myanmar: "Our missionary has informed us that this afternoon there was a horrible shooting near his house. There were dead bodies in the city. They do not know how many dead bodies were there. I believe no government or even the devil can operate outside the permissive will of God. At the same time, I believe God answers His children’s prayers and He protects His people."

Jon Hus (51 minute video)
We have all probably heard of John Calvin and Martin Luther but there are many more significant characters involved in the Reformation. Today we have the story of John Hus.
A 14th century Czech priest and scholar, John Hus is considered one of the first Protestant reformers. His interpretation of scripture and his bold stand against church corruption would strongly influence Martin Luther a century later. Hus spent his last days as a prisoner in Constance on charges of heresy. During his imprisonment Hus formed an unusual friendship with one of his jailers, Robert Talio.
