• 1 Parable, 1 Limerick & 2 Seas#

    15 November, 2018

    In Israel we have an interesting geographical phenomenon – there are two landlocked seas. One is alive and one is dead. The sea full of life is the Kinneret, better known as the Sea of Galilee. The dead sea is - you guessed it, the Dead Sea. Now the Kinneret is constantly emptying as it flows…...[read more]

  • Soaking the Soul's Wick

    14 November, 2018

    Complacency is an equal enemy to busyness for the disciple. Each lead to a spiritual negligence with the sure risk of faith's flame becoming snuffed out. As with the five wise maidens (See Matthew 25:1-13) I must deliberately stock fuel for my lamp. It is being that precedes doing. When the…...[read more]

  • 10 Maidens

    4 November, 2018

    Life is an exhaustingly permanent tussle with others, but more so, self. Life contains eternal riches to be tasted and even received upon earth.

  • Formed by Christ

The risks of entitlement are many. We all live in the golden age of rights. We see the heartaches, hear the…...[read more]

  • I Fear The Doctrine Of The Church

    2 September, 2018

    Could the doctrine of the church be as much a competitor for the souls of men as a caress to them? I fear the doctrine of the church. I dismiss the missal. And, I abhor the compromise of ecumenism. For where is the yearning of the devoted soul, if it is not first to sit at the feet of the Almighty…...[read more]

  • Verses for the Hard Yards

    30 August, 2018

    The day is to come (and soon) at Jesus' return when reason will prove faith right, and no longer contradict it. ~ Michael Cartwright Until then faith is the call to STAND STRONG when all reason screams - FLEE! The days multiply upon each Christian of hardship and decision. The New Testament…...[read more]
