Rev's Ramblings

Sun 28 Mar

Today, in the Christian Church, the event known as Palm Sunday is celebrated. It is a time when Jesus rode on a donkey into Jerusalem. One could hardly call it a momentous event when it only involved a donkey and a colt. Two animals! There have been much larger rides in history. For instance, the...

Sun 21 Mar

Today’s reading is a rather unusual Scripture. It provides us with an insight into the family background of two of the inner circle of the disciples – James and John. It is unusual in that we have the mother of James and John approach Jesus with a favour. “Sit my boys on either side of you when you sit on...

Sun 14 Mar

On several occasions Jesus made certain predictions that came true. Jesus predicted His betrayal. Jesus predicted the mocking He would receive. Jesus predicted his death by crucifixion. Jesus predicted He would rise from the dead. Jesus predicted all these events would take place at Jerusalem. Jesus...

Sun 7 Mar

Jesus loved to tell yarns, or we would know them as parables. The parable or yarn usually had a hidden meaning in the story. Sometimes it was quite easy to work out what the point was that Jesus was trying to get across to His listeners. Other times the disciples had to admit defeat and humbly come to...

Jesus had many encounters with people that came across His path during His 30 plus years here on planet Earth. Some of those encounters involved people who needed physical healing. Some were under demonic attack. Still others sought Jesus out for wisdom for living.The latter is what we encounter this...

As we once again plunge into Matthew’s gospel we see two very different responses to children.  Jesus’ own disciples apparently had little time for the children being brought to Him.  Although they were passionate about ministry they drew the line with ministering to children.  May be they...

Sun 14 Feb

 It does not take us long to realize that marriage is under severe attack. We may not like statistics, but they tell us that four out of every ten marriages eventually fail. Now, for some they may think that those numbers are pretty good, considering that some marriages make it through to 40 or 50...

Sun 7 Feb

We have reached the end of our brief sojourn into the Book of Psalms. We started with the gateway psalm which launched us into the psalms, namely Psalm One. Then we looked at each of the psalms which started each of the five books in the psalms. Now we come to the conclusion with Psalm 150. If you...

Sun 31 Jan

Giving thanks could possibly be dying out. While they are two little words – “Give thanks” they are not always spoken. We take every effort to teach our children to give thanks or to say thank you, we can be quick to slip back into not giving thanks at all.The writer of Psalm 107 repeats the phrase of...

Sun 24 Jan

What was before God? Or “Who made God? are often questions that children ask their Scripture teachers or Sunday School teachers. They are asked because we live in a world that decays and disintegrates. Even rocks wear down to finer grains, our clothes wear out. Even our physical bodies wear...
