The Church of Jesus Christ

Over 2,000 years ago Jesus said that he would build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. The church is his master project. Nothing else occupies his mind and heart as much as this. The church is not a building, not an organisation and not an event. It is God's people - a community of Christ-followers, empowered by the Spirit to participate in God's mission in the world. As long that is happening, the form and style of the church is not overly important. In fact, it takes all sorts of churches to reach the... Read more →

Theological Reflections

Theology may sound a bit boring and heady, but it's really not. It is simply the study of God. Of course, God is not someone we can put under a microscope and fully understand. He is beyond our comprehension. nevertheless, as creations of God, its important that we take time to think about our Creator - to reflect on who he is and what's like, as well as what he's up to in the world. I've written a whole bunch of posts around the topic of theology. Take some time to read one or two of them each day over... Read more →

Quotes worth Quoting

Words have great power. With them God created the world. However, we live in a wordy world, where words can lose their impact and importance. Sometimes we're saying so much ... but really saying so little. I love quotes - words from people who have engaged their brain and heart before opening their mouth. Wisdom from the wise. Gems ready to discover ... if we'll just stop ... and listen ... then pause ... reflect ... and who knows, maybe even change. That's the power of words. I've gathered a whole collection of quotes worth quoting. Click here to begin... Read more →

The Joy of Laughter

They say that laughter is good medicine. I believe that is true. Life can be stressful and draining at times. However, we know that the joy of the Lord is our strength. Joy is different than happiness in that it does not depend on what is happening to us. It comes from our relationship with God and our faith that he has everything in control, even if our circumstances don't seem to affirm that fact. Every now and then it's good to stop and look on the funny side of life, even if it means having a good laugh at... Read more →

Everyone loves a good movie but sometimes it can be hard to find a good one.
