Don’t be Robbed Sun 4th Feb 18

Over the years, I have spent many hours with people who are facing a variety of difficult situations. Whatever their challenge.

Moses and Me! Sun 28th Jan 18

Over the last few days, I have found myself gripped by Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians.

Think about it! Sun 6th August 17

In our society many hold a wrong view with regard to themselves. There are those who have too high a view of themselves. They live for themselves and consider themselves as the judge of their own morality. Likewise, we meet those who have little or no regard for themselves and...

Time Aside Sunday 9th July 17

Today is the last full day before we get away for a two week break. As is the case for anyone in this situation, there appears much to do and little time to do it. However, I am thrilled to say that the list that I wrote this morning is...
