  • Take Time to Have Time

    For months I had known that my family planned to take a trip to New Zealand half-way through the Uni semester, providing me with plenty of time to complete any assessment due. Much like Tim Urban, the Ted Talk presenter in the attached video, I kept pushing it back telling myself “It’ll be right” and thinking that in a week I will somehow have better willpower or be older and wiser to complete the assessment at a higher standard.

  • The COVID social economy

  • Get out of your own way

  • A sign of the times

    When it comes to the book of Revelation and any mention of end-times in the Bible, many choose to differ on deep translation or theological interpretations on verses that can lose their relevancy and message due to over analysation.

  • It’s all in the way you say it

    I was chatting to someone recently about current political matters. Once it was established that I was a Christian, the conversation turned into a debate and I was now supposed to defend the views of Christianity as well as my own.

  • Three Things to learn from Jackie Robinson: Part one

    If you’ve never heard of Jackie Robinson, he was the very first African-American player to be integrated into Major League Baseball in 1947. As a skilled athlete his ability was rarely questioned when considered for coloured teams; his track record was ideal as a devoted Christian, husband, veteran, and educated college man. On paper Jackie Robinson was the type of player that major teams would fight over, had he not been black.

  • Faith for fear

    I’ve often wondered what book of the Bible people in the past have held onto the most during seasons of war, plagues and uncertainty. But I suppose it’s like asking which virtue is the most important to a Christian that they use it when in the most danger, as if it were a weapon.

  • Is this the world you want?

    At this present moment in time, allegations of sexual misconduct by a staffer in Parliament House have reignited and further stoked the call for justice; and this is justified.

  • The left and the placebo effect of self-reason

    The placebo effect is a treatment used by medical practitioners and psychologists for over a hundred years.
