    Redeeming culture

    If you’ve ever tried to build a sandcastle in the middle of a hurricane then you’re pretty weird but you would also know exactly what it feels like to be disheartened by modern culture.

  • House fires

    House fires

    I’ve been alarmed at the surprisingly number of people who have been losing their lives through house fires.

  • Words, and hearing the voice of God

    Words, and hearing the voice of God

    Words have so much power. One line from Star Wars can change the whole face of the storyline “Luke, I am your father” – Darth Vader. What an absolute shocker that was.
