Youth Column – Christianhood – ministry in clothing

Youth Column: Christianhood - ministry in clothing It all started when I was at university, feeling creative with some fabric paints, having some time on my hands, and painting 'Christian' slogans onto Tesco-bought t-shirts. I came up with a name of Angel Wings and thought this was a great idea to pass some time and make some…

Youth Coloumn – Book Review – Awesome on the inside

Awesome on the inside  When I saw the cover of Awesome on the inside I thought, 'This isn't the sort of book I would read'. But I've always been told not to judge a book by its cover, so I started reading. And it turns out, Awesome on the inside really is awesome on…

Just start somewhere!

Just start somewhere!  We all need to read our Bibles, right? For me, towards the end of 2009 everyone seemed to be 'moaning' at me that I should read my Bible more, but I never knew where to start.  I had several daily devotional books, but they only had about one verse in, so…

Why the Bible matters to me

Why the Bible matters to me  If I was to ask the question to people walking down the street today, 'What does the Bible mean to you?' I wonder what their answer would be. To many, the Bible is just a book; it is simply ink and paper.  What does the Bible mean to…

Youth Column What is Christian love? My wife used to joke that people who ended their cards with 'Christian love' don't really love you at all! But Philippians 1 stands out in my mind, where Paul tells the Philippian church that he longs for them with the affection of Christ Jesus (v.8). And this affection he…

‘I really want to be like Jesus’

'I really want to be like Jesus' Do you really want to be like Jesus? Is it possible we think we do, but really we don't? I have a friend who is a GP. When he decided he wanted to be a doctor he couldn't do it without putting in the hard work. He knew…

Youth Supplement – Waiting on God
