Is it worth buying an iPad?

iPads or portable computing devices seem to be all the rage nowadays. If you like technology, they can sure be a fun and beneficial device, enhancing our lives and work in amazing ways. I love this brief video clip (in German but easily understandable in any language) about a daughter asking her father how the new iPad she bought him for his birthday is going ... enjoy :) Play Video Read more →


Celebrating Pentecost

Last Sunday was “Pentecost Sunday” (8th June), a significant day on the Christian annual calendar, yet one that tends to receive little attention, compared to Christmas and Easter. Pentecost Sunday occurs 50 days after Easter and is a celebration of the coming of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church of Jesus Christ. Just like your personal story is much bigger than the time between your birth and death, in that you have roots and heritage reaching further back in time and hopefully a future legacy lasting beyond your lifetime, so our story as a church reaches back...

One missing ingredient can prevent everything from working well together. In life and ministry, that ingredient is faith - full trust and confidence in God. No matter what you are facing or going throuygh right now, add some faith to it. God is with you and he is at work in ways we dont often see at the time. Hebrew 11:6. It is impossible to please...

Breathe

Life seems to be getting busier, faster, and more complex. Before you know it, you can feel tired, stressed, exhausted, and just plain out of breath. That’s why it’s so important to pause frequently - just to breathe. Maybe you feel “out of breath” (exhausted or gasping for breath) or even winded. Take some time to “catch your breath” (which means to pause or rest before continuing an activity or beginning a new one). Learn to “breathe freely”, experiencing relief from tension, anxiety, tension or pressure. Breathe in God’s Spirit. Be refreshed. Breathe No one I know really takes time... Read more →
