Inherit the Earth

November 20, 2012


The autumn term is hotting up! It is, without a doubt, the busiest term of the academic year. This year, I kick started a new Youth Theatre at work, for younger kids aged 7-11, and it’s been one of the best work moves I’ve made. Every week, their limitless enthusiasm comes bounding through the doors, […]

Praying for the government

October 17, 2012


“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.3 This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to […]

Them Crazy Christians…(1 Co 15…)

August 22, 2012


Unfortunately, this is how those who do not know the Lord think. That we Christians are lost, and “more to be pitied than anyone in the world” – why?

Keeping Good Company Proverbs 13:20

June 2, 2012


“Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm” They reckon you can tell a lot about a person, by the company they keep… When you spend enough time with people, they rub off on you. The Bible isn’t asking us to become holy hermits who isolate themselves from the […]

Cast your cares onto Christ

May 31, 2012


“Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” – 1 Peter 5:7   …Oh, to be care-free! Skipping through life with a spring in your step, dancing on into eternity…*cue reality check* *smack* *aaaaaand wake up* So if casting you cares on to Christ doesn’t mean that life is one big easy dream-like state, then what does it mean?   For those […]
