Adjusting To A New Mind-set…

A little while back I blogged A Great Cloud of Witnesses and in that piece I wrote about how so many blokes are sitting in church pews on a Sunday morning, feeling fat and bored. Yet when we read the Bible we see that this is not what following Christ was ever meant to be. […]

A Great Cloud of Witnesses

Not that long ago I was asked to co-host a thirteen week men’s radio programme on TWR-UK, it was a phenomenal privilege and I got to work alongside the legend that is Mr James Maidment-Fullard. You have to know him, to know how true that description is. In one of the episodes CVM’s Executive Director […]

The Pace Of Grace: Listening To Our Hearts

Most of the time I sleep really well, I love to rest and one of my most pleasing discoveries on my own spiritual journey was to find that the very first gift God gave to Adam and Eve was Sabbath. The flip side to this has been that on those rare nights that I find […]

You Are Not God…

It may come as a surprise to you but you are not God and neither am I. Being created in the image of God may mean that we are designed to reflect his glory, but it does not mean that we share his DNA. When God created you and I, he created us out of […]

Did Jesus Just Say…?

When Jesus said “I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves,”  he was speaking to a group of people who he knew would instantly have made two assumptions: #Assumption1: Doves are good, doves are peaceful. The gathered people may even have made the […]

Truth: A Solid & Immovable Mountain

“Conviction might be a matter of personal opinion, but truth is like a great mountain, solid and immovable whether we like it or even acknowledge it. Christianity is not a set of convictions—it is truth…” Quote taken from Beautiful Outlaw by John Eldredge

Coming Out From A Self Imposed Exile…

Over the past few months there have been two winters in my life. The first winter has been the annual winter that brings frosts, winds, rain and sometimes even the threat of snow. The second winter has been very much more personal, and in it there have been some tough moments but it has also […]
