About Paul, Podcasts & Contact

I am a husband, a dad, a mentor, a musician, a story-teller, a seeker of truth and a barefoot walker. A powerful spiritual encounter in 1982 (at the church of St Andrew’s Chorleywood) led to theological education in the UK and Brazil. The ensuing journey has taken me around the world, from the UK to Australia. Since 1985 my work has engaged me as a pastor, planter, intentional interim and Archdeacon. My work in coaching and healing today is informed by every aspect of that journey.

TEACHINGS FROM THE CHRISTIAN TRADITION (posts & podcasts)

A brief introduction to the teachings that follow…

Becoming a Christian

adam-and-eve

THE GENESIS OF US – Genesis is an intriguing ancient library of texts. In the form we now have it, how does it frame the story of the Bible, God and Jesus? And in its current form what does it have to say about us today?

Scrolls, Stories & Creation – Genesis 1:1-3

All about How we Listen and How we Feel – Genesis 1:1-2:3

The Story of Us and what The Fall wasn’t – Genesis 2:15-3:24

Did Jesus have a sinful nature? And what The Fall wasn’t – Genesis 2:15-3:24

It’s about Soul Work and Keeping…Genesis 4:1-24

NEW BOOK – The words of Genesis are enigmatic and hold deep mysteries for the translator. My new book probes some of these translation issues reaching to the even more ancient sources on which Genesis draws. The exploration reveals some unfamiliar layers to the story we’re all familiar with – arriving at some shocking and controversial conclusions. Watch this space for the new book…

THINKING AGAIN

The Great Reformers established the importance of perpetually returning to the Scriptural sources of Christian faith and asking afresh, “Have we read this right?” From time to time our habitual patterns of thought and doctrine find themselves challenged by a refreshed reading of the Scriptures…

roadtrip

THE LUKE 10 ROAD-TRIP In the Gospel of Luke Jesus sends out the second wave of missionaries to embody his mission. 72 of them. It’s a mission we all inherit as followers of Jesus. The Church calls this aspect of Christianity the “apostolic life.” So how might that look for us? The Luke 10 Road-Trip re-frames our idea of Christian mission. It explores how we can grace-fill our relationships and incarnate God’s love for people, by following the timeless principles Jesus’ laid out for his 72:

Part 1 – Fixing Attitudes, Multiplying Channels & Occupying Territory

Part 2 – Giving Away & Sharing the Journey

Part 3 – Finding and Recognizing People of Peace

Part 4 – Being Good Guests in the Lives of Others

Part 5 – Acts of Befriending – Churching or Discipling?

SHARING THE JOURNEY OF SIMPLE, ORGANIC CHURCH

All around the world Christian believers are moving out of larger feudal structures into simpler, more organic ways of being Church.  Right now my family is enjoying being church with friends and families who live within walking distance. We love it. We also love to share the journey with friends further afield. We are not building a community, rather we are remembering how to live as believers in the community. Our family’s journey into this way of being church reflects in the public conversations below with my brother Molong Nacua in Cebu, the Philippines and my brother Aaron Snow in Texas USA. Enjoy…
