Liz Hay rejoices in living in a beautiful part of God’s creation in a high country mountain basin; and she also rejoices in hearing stories of God at work in people’s lives. One of her favourite activities is reading fascinating biographies that illustrate the wonderful ways God works uniquely with each person.

  • Abandoning the binary paradigm

    More than a decade ago I read a paper that came from a women’s conference in Beijing.

  • Is God answering prayer for Ukraine?

    A recent TV newsclip on the Ukrainian invasion showed worshippers in a Ukrainian church lighting candles and offering prayers.

  • Putin – and Jesus

    I was having coffee with a good friend when she asked the question. “Would Putin ever be like the thief on the cross and be able to go to heaven?”

  • Being in control…

    We all like being in control of our lives, in knowing what’s happening. Most people don’t like living with uncertainty, and we tend to be creatures of habit. That’s normal.

  • We must remember…

  • “God will look after me.”

  • Becoming wise…

  • What about our rights?

    How many times have we heard that question in our Covid 19 world? Often, it’s used in the context of personal freedom – individuals wanting to be free to not wear a mask, not be vaccinated, go where they choose, associate with whom they want to. It’s all in the name of human rights.

  • Listening to the silence

    In pre-digital days I was helping out at a school camp for 11 year olds. One of the activities the class teacher asked the children to do, was to get away by themselves, where they couldn’t see or hear anyone else. During 20 minutes on their own they were to simply sit, and listen. Then they were to write down what sounds they heard.

  • Two men – and the bottle

    Recently I heard such sad news. A man in his forties whom I knew a little, had been found dead. He had been homeless for a while, as he was no longer able to live with family. Although he’d been provided with accommodation, his lifestyle was such that he couldn’t carry on there.
