I’ve been around people who are in ministry my whole life, I’ve been in ministry for a few years and I’ve learned many things. Two things that I’ve learned are 1) ministry is fun, and 2) ministry is hard.Continue reading “Facing snarls and scowls…”
Let women speak…
A few days ago I published two book reviews in one post. One book had over 15 authors who contributed and the other was written by one author. But all of the contributors were women. This got me thinking; why do we stop learning from women?Continue reading “Let women speak…”
Hear the voice of women…
One of the things that I’ve noticed is that there are significantly fewer well-known authors, in the Christian world, who are women. I don’t know why exactly this is because often times women are the ones who teach us to walk, to eat and to speak. So why stop learning from them when we grow up? Continue reading “Hear the voice of women…”
Creating a teaching culture in the home…
How many things that you do in your home are a result of the culture of the world and how many are intentional culture changes that you have made because of your faith? Some people live as if saying grace before a meal and having Bibles on the bookshelf is enough, but the Bible calls Christians to live very distinct lives in the world and to always point people to God.Continue reading “Creating a teaching culture in the home…”
The Fruitful Home
The home is an interesting place. It is where you spend a lot of time in your childhood, it’s where you should learn about love and discipline and primarily, for the Christian, it’s where you should be taught about God. But how can you create a culture in your home that is gospel saturated Continue reading “The Fruitful Home”
Why only paddle?
Think back to those holidays at the beach as a child. You’d be standing in the sand with the waves gently wrapping around your feet. Even now as an adult, at least in Scotland, people love to walk along the sea and paddle. We enjoy tipping out toes in and getting a feel for the water. How often do we treat theology and the Christian walk in the same way?Continue reading “Why only paddle?”
Church History and Mr. Hill
I recently posted a blog saying how much I enjoyed reading the biography of Maud Kells and how my library which is now 1,000+ only had around 40-50 biographies. As I said back then, that is not a good ratio!
I am a little bit of a Church History fan. Continue reading “Church History and Mr. Hill”
Single doesn’t mean broken…
We live in a world where people get hurt. People make fun of others, silently judge others and they ask questions that are inappropriate and can be quite hurtful. You have probably seen this conversation play out in front of your very eyes.
Man: Are you single?Continue reading “Single doesn’t mean broken…”
Who am I?
Who am I?
That’s a question that many people are asking today. Our world seems to be in the middle of an identity crisis and there are many voices speaking up and telling people what they can and should find their identity in.Continue reading “Who am I?”
Do you walk the walk?
One of the easiest things in the world to do, especially if your British, is to stand and criticise. It’s so simple to see flaws in a person, in the global church or in a Christian denomination when you’re standing outside of it. Many people like to point out flaws, to point the finger and criticise but do they ever come up with solutions?Continue reading “Do you walk the walk?”
