The church has been weird and confusing for 2,000 years. Here's a little explanation of what it all means and why baptism is the perfect response.
The centre of Christianity is Easter Sunday, not Good Friday. It's just that a cross is easier to draw than an empty tomb.
What on earth makes the death of Jesus Good News? Why do Christians call the day of his death Good? And what difference should it make to us today?
Is there more to the good news than we first imagined? Is it just good for us, or is there more to it than that?

If Friday is so Good, why on earth did the Church make Sunday special?
Why do we celebrate baptism, when there is so much pain in the world around us?
