Blog

In my role as church leader, there are thoughts from God’s Word, The Bible, that I would often like to share with you. These may be inspired by something I have read or in response to something that I have heard on the news.

We hope that the thoughts in this blog will help and inspire you as you read them.

Are you ready for Christmas?

The last couple of weeks have been very busy for most of us. Long to-do lists and many tasks to accomplish. If you are like me you would have your long list in paper and be glad when you get to cross one item off with a pen, meaning there’s one less thing to do. […]
