Mission Trip To Greece →
Facebook gives quite a bit of information for the casual passers-by; location, family, relationship, political opinion, sex, age, etc. Whe n you look at them you can sometimes be very surprised by the answers; not knowing they had a brother, not realising they share your birthday and so on. What catches me off guard is normally the religious views, specially when they say Christian, to which I...
Personal Mission Statement
Churches, businesses, schools, universities and many other establishments have mission statements which tell onlookers what their purpose and what they strive for. I figure as people do we have unspoken, unwritten mission statements? If this was to be written down what would it look like? May be this. My aim is; To love God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength. To seek to bring God glory...
“If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.” Most civilisations, throughout history have thought that they were the pinnacle of humanity. Romans, Babylonians, Britons, Greeks, any that you can think of, even us, all had/have very high opinions of themselves. We have “evolved” as a race, we have computers and various other...

The Greatest Love Story The World Has Ever Known
Romeo and Juliet… What is it about the story that has made it last this long, be this popular and well known and studied? Is it because William Shakespeare is famous and wrote so many great works? or is he famous because of Romeo and Juliet? I saw a poster for Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet and one of the captions on the poster is “The greatest love story the world has ever...
The Sin Disease
Last week we got to the subject of the cross and the difference between Sin and sins. When God made the Earth He saw that everything was good. Then we read in Genesis that Adam and Eve were tempted by a serpent to disobey God. To choose their wisdom over His, to choose a new level of knowledge rather than to trust that God had given them everything they needed. This is usually referred to as...
God is God, God is good, always.
He will never forsake you. You will never ever be alone. You cannot escape or be lost from God’s “consciousness”. He always knows where you are, what you’re doing and how you’re feeling, what you’re going through and all your thoughts. One of the worst feelings when you are struggling with something is loneliness. No one knows I’m feeling like this, no one knows how I’m feeling, what I’m...
In John Jesus defines himself in ‘I AM’ statements. I am the bread of life, I am the light, I am the door, I am the good shepherd, I am the resurrection and the life. Meaning: Bread of life; people are invited to come to Jesus The light; invited to follow Jesus …cross the threshold and… The Door; enter a new world, a new sphere of life The Good Shepherd; protected and...

I Don't Remember
There was an Catholic priest who went to investigate a woman who had been seeing visions of Jesus. He told the woman, the next time she saw Jesus, to ask him what sins he had confessed at his last visit to Confessions. The priest went back a week later after hearing again that she had seen Jesus, he asked her “did you ask Jesus what sins I had confessed to this week?”...
every morning when i rise i will thank you for my life
Thank You For My Life
This morning I had an idea, for twitter users or facebook-ers. The tag is #TY4ML (thank you for my life) and what I’d like to see is people getting up in the morning and, before they head off for their day, thanking God for the air in their lungs and the new day with new opportunities and the gift of another day to live. It will focus you on God and being grateful because I’ll admit I...
These violent delights have violent ends And in their triumph die, like fire...– William Shakespeare - Romeo & Juliet
Rooms and Door Frames
I’m working at College this summer to make some cash, one of my jobs is to paint rooms with a fresh coat of magnolia. These rooms have been lived in since they were last painted about a year or two ago and you can see the tell tale signs like chipped paint, faded areas, marks on the walls, etc. All this got me thinking. What if we are the rooms? What if I’m a room and God is the...
