notes of devotional podcast header

As we saw the start of Lent last week as well as many churches celebrating Ash Wednesday I thought the theme for this episode should follow on the same theme. This week we explore the theme of repentance taken from 1 John 1:5-10. At the end you can hear an acoustic version of the song […]

Keeping My Love On!


A while ago I blogged about how I can sometimes find certain people difficult to deal with (See Difficult People) and what a Christian response to the situation might be. Since then things haven’t been too bad. However, this weekend things got heated once again. I’m not taking to the internet to debate who was […]

Non-Christians are Desperate for the Prophetic!


A while ago, in my workplace someone brought in a flyer advertising a clairvoyant evening in a village near by. Conversation in the staff room soon turned to mediums and clairvoyants.
