Calling on the name of the Lord

Calling on the name of the Lord I was born into a Christian family and each week went along to church. I was not interested in what was being said, although there were times when it would suddenly hit me that I was not living in a way that pleased God. This would trouble…

From football to faith

From football to faith Hi, my name is Hamilton, but you may call me Ham!     My childhood wasn’t anything spectacular; I did what most children did when growing up. I had a real love for football and was always playing it. Looking back, I don’t really remember having much to do with Christianity…

God’s living Word

God’s living Word I became a Christian after I experienced an amazing touch of God’s presence. I was born and raised in Singapore by non-Christian parents. Though they sent me to a Lutheran kindergarten where I learnt songs like ‘Jesus loves me, this I know’, when I was eight I became an atheist.   …

Finding the Creator

Finding the Creator I was born in South Wales during World War II. I had a happy and stable upbringing.     My parents and I attended a Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Church. Going to chapel was part of our weekly routine, as was dressing in our ‘Sunday best’! I believed in the existence of God,…

Truth or tradition?

Truth or tradition? Truth and tradition have usually been in contention. And this is especially true when it comes to the subject of Christmas. Christmas is a season full of traditions, from Santa Claus to Rudolph the reindeer, to Christmas trees. These are harmless and happy traditions, except when they push the truth out…

The force of truth

The force of truth I was brought up in Toxteth, Liverpool, and lived around the corner from a very active church, which always had something for bored kids like me. Although my parents weren’t churchgoers, they had attended Sunday school as children and thought it would be good for us to do the same.…

What is your life ?

What is your life ? I challenge you! Can you think of a more important question than that? The New Testament writer James gives a brief answer to this question: ‘You are a mist that appears a little while and then vanishes’ (James 4:14). But that answer touches on only two aspects of life…

A white Christmas

A white Christmas Yes, it’s that time again — when you can’t visit the shops without being subjected to ‘Christmas music’. I don’t mean carols like ‘Hark the herald angels sing’ or Handel’s ‘Messiah’, but ‘Merry Christmas’ by Slade or ‘Mistletoe and wine’ by Cliff Richard. It’s enough to make you want to stay…

A Christmas blessing

Christmas Eve 2011 saw my family and I attending a ‘Service of nine lessons and carols’ in Bath Abbey. The carefully chosen Bible readings, along with the traditional Christmas carols, proved a great blessing. The service concluded with a prayer, which this Christmas I would like to share with you: May the joy of…

Doing the right thing

Doing the right thing There will be some people reading this who don’t enjoy the social whirl of the holidays. Nevertheless, they go to dances, ‘dos’ and New Year countdowns because of the expectations of others. Even while conforming, many feel the awkwardness of ‘loneliness in a crowd’. But my biblical hero, Joseph, broke…

From immorality to Christ

From immorality to Christ I left the British Home for Mothers and Babies, at Woolwich, in my mother’s arms. That was at the end of the first week of June in 1944. We were accompanied, I am told, by the drone of an unwelcome companion up in the sky, one of Hitler’s first ‘doodlebugs’.…

The dog who stole Christmas

The dog who stole Christmas Wise men came from the East to worship Jesus and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Myrrh seems a strange gift, for it was used to anoint a dead body!    But Jesus was born to die, and, by his death and resurrection, he paid the penalty for…
