God: No T’s and C’s?

I’m not sure if that title is entirely theologically correct and I’m happy to engage in conversation with anyone who disagrees with me. It was prompted by a typo in a caption my friend gave to a photo of his boys dressed as waiters. They had just made their mum Sunday lunch for Mother’s Day... Continue Reading →

This is Who I’m talking about…

A 14-year-old boy  called Walker whose heart is breaking prays and the next day Jesus turns up in his bedroom, long flowing robes, sandals and all. This short story/poem is absolutely amazing. The Jesus we meet is the Jesus I'd like everyone to meet. I often ask people to read one of the gospels to... Continue Reading →

But it might help someone which is why I offer it. (I’m very aware that the Bible gives a very adequate definition of faith,... Continue Reading →

Psalm 24 1 The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it,     the world, and those who live in it; 2 for he has founded it on the seas,     and established it on the rivers. 3 Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?
