Questions Questions!

Questions Questions! Have you any questions that simply won't go away and always demand an answer? Consider first the pressing questions of life itself and death. What is life? What a mystery life truly is!

We need Jesus

We need Jesus  It struck me as I read recently a chapter in the book of Matthew (first book in the New Testament) how desperately Jesus is needed in our world today. Jesus came into a world much like our own. It was a world of false religion, violence, disease and death. He saved people.…

Was Scrooge right?

Was Scrooge right? It's Christmas Eve, but Ebenezer Scrooge is not going to let his clerk knock off a minute early. He already begrudges the fact that he is going to have to pay Bob Cratchit a day's pay for no work on Christmas Day.      While Bob waits shivering in the cold warehouse office,…

God’s amazing faithfulness!

God's amazing faithfulness! You could say I used to be the average, second-generation Christian. My parents are Christians, their parents were Christians, and it goes back like that.      I was born into and raised in a church setting all my life. Looking back, it was obviously such a great benefit, because even when I…

My story of God’s love

My story of God's love I was brought up in a church going family and have always believed in God. I called myself a Christian because I went to church, but this is not the meaning of a Christian, as I was to discover!      I left church when I was 17 due to my…

What’s it all about?

What's it all about? It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining, and I was beginning to believe that the weather forecasters were right in predicting 'a barbecue summer' this year. I stepped into a local shop to buy a card for someone who had just retired, but had difficulty finding the right section,…
