Your Christian Life

I've been re-reading Mike Reeves' brilliant little book on the Trinity called 'The Good God, enjoying Father, Son and Spirit' (just check out the reviews on Amazon for proof).  His conclusion is short and succinct enough to warrant popping it here, in the hope that people will be inspired enough to get his book, read...

Captured by Love

This wonderful "Confession of Faith" can be found here at Michael Hardin's 'Preaching Peace' website. We confess we have been captured by love – the constant source of the universe, Father, Son and Holy Spirit Jesus has captured us for freedom.

No sooner had I sat down and reached for a biscuit, when I heard that... Continue Reading →

Change the Script

 Most of us love stories.  I was read to as a child.  When my dad was on shore leave from the Navy we had a gluttony of stories (mostly the classic fairy stories, but it was because dad was reading that it became an event)! Stories are scripts!  They can be about anything, teaching us... Continue Reading →
