Who do you trust?

I heard someone say the other day that they used to read the news to find out the facts of a story, so they could decide what to believe about it. They went on to say, “Now if I read the news I’m told what to believe about something, and…

What are you REALLY passionate about?

If you were offered an unlimited advertising budget, how would you use it? What would you communicate? If you had the chance to communicate one message, what would it be? For Paul, there’s no doubt what it would be spent on. Promoting Christ. And more specifically, the cross – the…

Freedom of speech, freedom of religion

One of the issues at play in the election was freedom of speech and religious freedom. It came a long way down the list from the question of “what am I going to get/lose?” which probably has the biggest influence on the outcome, but it was there nonetheless. We are…

Happy Mother’s Day!

What a wonderful privilege it is to have children and nurture them; and an even greater privilege to show them what it’s like to follow Jesus. It’s not as easy as it sounds, as any parent knows. To guide your children well, discipline them in good and godly ways whilst…

Hope Begins

Christ is Risen! When Peter writes to Christians who are being severely persecuted for their faith, he tells them that they have a living hope (1 Peter 1:3). Christianity is not a dead religion – it’s living, because its founder is alive. Those believers (who were going through fiery trials)…

I Am Chosen

One of the mind-blowing things about following Jesus is that you find out that God had you in mind to be in His family long before you even thought about it. Long before you even existed. Long before you did anything wrong, and needed forgiving. Before the world came into…

Helping One Another Know, Grow & Proclaim Christ

Helping others is a wonderful thing to be doing. It’s the second greatest commandment, according to Jesus (“love your neighbour as yourself” Matthew 22:39). It’s no surprise that researchers find that people who help others report that their life is happier and has greater meaning than for those who are…

Church Vision 2019

It’s been a tough week for the church with the conviction of George Pell on child sex offences. It’s easy to point the finger and say that we would never do that. And I pray fervently that none of us would. But the stark reality is that apart from God’s redeeming…

“Remember me….”

One of the deepest needs we have as human beings is to be significant to someone else: to be remembered. Isn’t it encouraging when you meet someone you have known in the past and they remember not only your name, but who you really are? But the reality is that…
