    Reflections on Christmas 

    Christmas can come and go so quickly, often we hear the same Christmas story at church as we do every year. The Christmas story is a very powerful and significant event in the life of Christians but it can become mundane too.

    Parkrun and baby Jesus

    The best we can do is to label Christmas as a time for giving and when baby Jesus was born in a manger. After the supermarket carols have stopped and the wrapping paper all binned we do not often reflect on what the incarnation means. Nor do we search for application on how we can follow this model to “be Christ” in our communities. Here are some thoughts on baby Jesus, the incarnation and fun runs.

    The Grand Canyon echoes God’s heart for redemption

    Living in America has had its benefits since we moved here two years ago for my husband to pursue education to be a pastor. By living here we’ve had the amazing privilege of being able to go to some of the most incredible national parks in the world!

    Victory in Unlikely Places

    There are many places to seek God for direction, but my car seems to be a popular spot of consistent revelation. Although grateful for the invite, anxiousness set in because I had only one piece of what I needed to share. I only had two days left to finish preparing to speak at a college revival.

    The Konversations, Klashes and Kristianity

    So apparently, now it could be a rude thing to ask an Asian person, “Where are you from?”. Given that that person could have been born in the country the questioner is from, trying to figure out where exactly the Asian person’s family originally came from could be seen as an act of ‘proving’ that he or she is ‘not of us’.

    Three things to ponder this New Year

    I really tried to avoid writing a New Year’s Resolutions article this week. It just seemed so cliché, something that I could write full of classic one-liners, but void of any real meaning.

  • The magic of nostalgia

    The magic of nostalgia

    There’s something special about rediscovering a forgotten piece of childhood.  Stumbling across a box of old toys or seeing a familiar book title in a second-hand store is often the start of a magical journey of memories and emotions. 

  • Elevate

    Elevate

    Picture this, you're a lone mountain climber. Looking up at the greatest summit known to man you take a deep breath in you know that you’ve spent years preparing for this, you feel a sense of power and accomplishment because you know that it's time to elevate yourself. This is your moment of glory.

  • A positive mindset

    A positive mindset

    2018 was an enormous year. A lot happened in my life, my family and friends’ lives and around the world. Amazing and wonderful things happened as well as sad and upsetting things. And with all these things that have happened, I have really come to realise how important our mindset, and more specifically, a positive mindset is.

  • From a wresting Christian – What about the devil?

    From a wresting Christian – What about the devil?

    I’ve been on a journey with God that has been hopeful at best and strenuous and tiresome at worst. A good analogy, used millions of times by writers, is that of hiking a long and arduous trail.
