From the CCCF archives (written by Joe Sim) | Easter 2003 

I came back to Cambridge, having missed this very fairy tale atmosphere and wanting very much to get back into its enchantment. The autumn trees were already shedding their crimson leaves and the streets we...

Recently I was reading about Solomon asking the Lord for wisdom in 2 Chronicles 1. Despite this moment of humility, Solomon eventually turned away from the Lord, and did not walk in the way of David his father. This made me wonder: what was the one thing that David the...

From the CCCF archives | Michaelmas 2007 

What is it that you live for? Why do you get out of bed every morning? Is there something to look forward to each day? Perhaps there are days when we don’t look forward to getting out of bed. There are still overdue essays to be...

February 20, 2018

There are two big things I struggle with at Cambridge. The first thing is anxiety. Being in an environment where everyone is working hard (seemingly harder than you) and there is so little time to do everything you want to do, it is easy to doubt myself about whether I...

A reflection on Hosea 1:1-3; 2:1-23

In this passage, through the example of Israel’s troubled relationship with God, we learn that God will judge the unfaithful but ultimately also call them back to Him. From this, we are reminded once again that our God is both a just...

It has been a cold and gloomy Christmas in Cambridge, but I have been strangely encouraged by the families in Eden Baptist Church that have accepted me and by a short trip to the Lake District with my mother. Through these experiences, I believe that in this Christmas...

A CG Bible study reflection on Mark 10:13-31

Mark connects two seemingly unrelated episodes to illustrate a simple yet challenging proposition: it is only by God’s grace – and not our efforts – that we might enter His kingdom. Jesus declares that we must receive the kin...

A CG reflection on Mark 7:1-23

In this passage, Jesus rebuked the Pharisees for being hypocrites. These were the religious leaders of the time – men who diligently kept the law and observed every Jewish tradition and practice. Yet, this is what Jesus said about them:
