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…”

A Hidden Problem of COVID19

There are so many things that have happened in 2020 that have been hard, as a result of COVID19. Thousands upon thousands of people have sadly lost their lives.

The churchContinue reading “A Hidden Problem of COVID19”

Listen To Various Voices

The last few weeks and months have been a very interesting time to be alive. It’s been a very strange time with people on two sides of an issue slinging mud at each other.
