Youth Supplement – Back to the Bible

Back to the Bible   Did you ever wonder how and why the Protestant church was started? It happened when learned men of God attempted unsuccessfully to bring the Roman church back to the Bible, from which it had strayed.   John Wycliffe in England (1320-1384) insisted that Christ was the head of the…

Myths about heaven In 2008 'The Streets' released the first single from their eagerly awaited album, 'Everything is borrowed'.

Youth Supplement – Sharing God’s mercy

Sharing God's mercy I can't remember a specific time or day when I became a Christian. However, I heard a sermon as a young teenager on the text Isaiah 45:22: 'Look unto me and be saved all you ends of the earth, for I am God and there is no other'. As a result, I…

Youth Supplement – Why worry?

Why worry? Stress. Anxiety. Worry. These words are being used more and more, and are the cause of many sick days and doctors appointments. But stress isn't a new invention. In fact, Jesus himself preached about stress in Matthew 6:28-34.  Why do we worry? A university in America conducted a scientific study and discovered that worrying…

Reflecting Have you ever had one of those Sunday afternoons when the weather is beautiful and you're sat outside letting your mind wander over past years? When I look back I realise how blessed I was to be brought up in a Christian home and to be taken to church even before I could understand what…

I was bored Hello, my name is Lewis. I have been going to church all my life. My parents are Christians and they always took me along, but I'll be honest, I got bored at church. I sat there, I went through the process, but I did it because I had to, not because I wanted…

Youth Supplement – The holiday that changed my life

The holiday that changed my life It all started when I was about three. I say it started then because that's the earliest I can remember. I was a pastor's daughter, brought up to go to church twice every Sunday and to believe in God and the Bible. Being three was great. I got to go…

Youth Supplement – Drawn to Albania

Drawn to Albania Albania is a barren land dotted with trees. It can be seen across the water from the Greek island of Corfu - a favourite holiday destination of my parents.  We holidayed in Corfu two summers ago enjoying its luscious olive groves - originally planted by the Venetians - and its beautiful bays…
