Called To Mission (Part #2)

When we read Scripture we find Jesus often talking about salt. Back in the day in which Jesus lived they were not any fridges or freezers, maybe a cold cave here or there, so salt was mainly used to preserve foods and keep them from decaying and falling apart, it helped keep things together. Jesus... Continue Reading →

Called To Mission (Part #1)

Let’s think about jobs for a moment, actually think about vocations because a job is just something we get paid to do, whereas a vocation means something a little bit more. In fact a quick look at Wikipedia you get this definition: A vocation (Latin vocātiō - a call, summons) is a term for an... Continue Reading →

Pray More. Worry Less.

The Bible tells us to not worry about anything. Nothing? Ever? That’s a challenging instruction to follow! The news pushes us to worry every day. We should worry about the rising death toll, the spread of the virus, the violence of extreme ideologies, climate change, unequal rights of different genders, the fear of offending anyone,...

A Problem Shared

We had ants appear in our bathroom over the summer. I live in the UK so these ants are relatively harmless, but that doesn’t make them any less annoying. For a start, what are they doing in our bathroom? What attracted them to that upstairs room of our house in the first place? And what... Continue Reading →

Who Are You?

I'm an imposter. One day someone will realise and soon after everyone else will see it. My writing is poor, and what I have to say is better said by other people. I know very little about technology, and I have nothing to share that would improve anyone's experience. Just watch the average tech YouTuber,... Continue Reading →

Fear of The Other

I remember, back in the early 2000s, soon after getting engaged to Kathi, being invited around to have a meal as a couple to a married couple’s home. They were, in fact, the first people in the church I’d only recently become a part of, to reach out to us as a newly engaged couple... Continue Reading →

Head and Shoulders?

One evening last year, my youngest son, ten years old at the time, ran himself a bath. He’d been in for a little while when, with his permission, I nipped in to grab something I needed from the bathroom cupboard. I noticed he had added plenty of bubble bath and also that he was in...

Anointed Leaders

As leaders, called by God, sometimes we might feel that the burden of leading a people has become too great. I listened to a podcast recently, and a guy on it said that if we’re not facing any opposition or feel any burden then maybe we’re not leading well as we should be. Challenging stuff!...

Equipped By His Word (Part #2)

“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another – showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.” (2 Timothy‬ ‭3:16-17‬ MSG) In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, we find... Continue Reading →

Equipped by His Word (Part #1)

The Bible is an amazing and inspired collection of books and letters given to us from God to help us live righteously and to equip us to help advance the Kingdom of God with a desire to bring Heaven to Earth. The problem is, if I can be honest with you for a moment, is... Continue Reading →
