This series started in 2019 with this post, it was a result ofContinue reading “Let women speak (Part Three)… They’ve been taught to be silent”

Easter: The Greatest News

Death, it is not a topic that many people in our world like to discuss. We don’t talk about death around the dinner table much, it’s probably more of a conversation killer than a conversation starter. But if this is the case, why exactly do we as Christians talk about and actually celebrate the deathContinue reading “Easter: The Greatest News”

Another famous Christian has been proven to have committed horrible acts. I’m not here to comment on the whole Ravi Zacharias thing. Enough people are doing that, some good and some bad.

The importance of truth in a truth-less world

I was in a lecture today and a minister who was conducting our Q and A session mentioned a quote that I’d never heard before. G. K.

Serving the Saviour they loved…

One of the mistakes that I have made over the years is that I have not read a lot of biographies. I’ve written before about the importance of reading and listen to the testimonies and stories of older saints, but this year I’m going to actually do it! Here are the first two I’ve read.Continue reading “Serving the Saviour they loved…”
