Tristan Sherwin is a husband to Steph, a father to Corban and Eaden, a friend to some, a teacher to many, and a follower of Christ. Tristan, whilst in full time employment, is a Pastor and teacher at the Metro Christian Centre, Bury, England. A lover of books, music and film.

Tristan longs to see that followers of Christ are released to follow and not enslaved. Equipped and not burdened. Engaged and not silent. His heart is that those who claim they love Christ are empowered to express that love.

We kickstarted our series on 1 Corinthians yesterday morning at Metro Christian Centre, Bury.


I spent some time giving some important background on how a cultural obsession with status was behind the divisions within the church at Corinth, and on why Paul emphasised that the church needed to reflect the cruciform nature of Christ.

It took me a few weeks to get through it’s 1000+ pages, but it was worth it! Such a great story. In fact, probably one of the best I’ve ever read.

Nothing beats a classic novel, and this one is brilliant. Wilde’s prose is electric.

“If at first you don’t succeed, then maybe you have the wrong idea of success, or you’re using the wrong standard of measuring it.”
Tristan Sherwin, Love: Expressed

“we will never be truly capable of ‘loving our neighbour’ as long as we continue to view the people around us as commodities, capital or competition”
Tristan Sherwin, Love: Expressed

“What if the thing that God wants us to receive most in our conversations with Him is not some alternate reality, but an assurance of a divine presence within, and a divine perspective on, our current reality – a presence and perspective that will ultimately change our response to our circumstances and lead us to be responsible within those circumstances? So prayer doesn’t just become some ‘spiritual exercise’ in order to exert our authority over the external world, it becomes a spiritually-physical relationship with a greater authority that brings transformation internally, leading to responsibility externally.”
Tristan Sherwin, Love: Expressed

“we will never be truly capable of ‘loving our neighbour’ as long as we continue to view the people around us as commodities, capital or competition”
Tristan Sherwin, Love: Expressed

“We place this huge burden on answers to function as finish lines, when they more naturally perform as milestones. We fool ourselves if we believe that answers are the proper response to questions, when the formal acknowledgment of a question is to embrace its invitation to enter into the journey of learning.”
Tristan Sherwin, Love: Expressed

“Experiencing something of the grace of God should always cause our self-perceived ideas about 'Who He is' and 'How He works' to pop.”
Tristan Sherwin, Love: Expressed

“To still seek God after discovering Him may be a love paradox of the soul, as A.W. Tozer reminds us; but to earnestly continue to perceive God and make Him perceivable, is the quintessence of worship.”
Tristan Sherwin, Love: Expressed

“I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound or stab us. If the book we're reading doesn't wake us up with a blow to the head, what are we reading for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us. That is my belief.”
Franz Kafka
