Throwing in the line

Throwing in the line

The Gospel stories are replete with experiences associated with fishing..

  • Self-discovery is not what you think it means

    At what stage of one's life should he/she be content with what they know about themselves? Is there more to me worth discovering? Is there solace at the end of one’s journey of self-discovery?

  • Hell is Real

    Believe it or not, Jesus spoke about the reality of hell and its danger more than the comfort and hope of heaven so that people would come to trust in Him and repent.

  • Lost Treasure

    As I reflect on my own life and the lives of those around me, I’m finding some fascinating revelations. One has to do with singleness and marriage. When I was in my late teens and very early twenties, all I yearned for was a mate.

  • The true meaning of the rainbow

    It breaks my heart every time I see the symbol Yahweh set apart to be a reminder to us of his mercy and faithfulness being stripped of its meaning by society and is now used to celebrate the sins of the flesh. How ironic is that?

  • Our sixth sense

    My wife of 44 years Delma has a sixth sense. When the children were tiny tots and the noise stopped her sixth sense stepped in to go find out what was happening. In ministry too her sixth sense is alive and well. Delma would know months in advance when a young writer in our program was moving on.

  • Matters of war

    I find myself thinking, writing and preaching a lot about the role of the church in the world. It seems that much of the church falsely think themselves to be on a cruise ship, rather than the glaringly obvious biblical reality that we were actually made for war.

  • Hope in the life of every child

    Imagine every single vulnerable child in primary school being mentored by an adult every week during the school term for one hour. Imagine being able to prepare children at a young age so you don’t have to repair them later. Imagine being that constant person in a young child’s life week in, week out and the purpose it would give you.

  • Father Me

    “A Father to the fatherless, a Defender of widows,     is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families…”

  • Who is the Child?

    Throughout the history of mankind, the natural progression of life has been birth, ultimately followed by death at some point in time.  During these trying times it might be worth looking at the importance of parenting.

  • Another Australian Innovation

    Next time you stand at a road crossing with pedestrian lights, and you press that conveniently-positioned button and wait for the lights to change and the familiar alteration in the sound that alerts you that you can "walk", be proud of Australian scientists and technicians.

  • The Cycle of Dr. Who

    Recently I have realised something about Dr. Who. No, its not the ‘lonely god theory’. Neither is it that recent Dr. Who is lacking, a lot. But, like Batman in the comics, Dr. Who is caught in a loop.
