Rev's Ramblings

Sun 20 Dec

English was not my strong subject at school. In fact I failed my Year 12 English exams. And when I went to Bible College a decade later, I had to get someone to proof read my essays to make sure the grammar was right. If English was not my strong point then poetry was even less so. And yet as we...

Christmas has arrived once again. Does it seem that it has come rather quickly this year? With bushfires, floods, and COVID, the year appears to have gone all too quickly.

How are you is a frequently asked question. We often ask it in passing. It is often asked without expecting any real answer. When was the last time you actually answered truthfully to the question? When was the last time you said to the person asking the question, “Look, if I am brutally honest with...

Ministry comes in all shapes and sizes. What is your ministry? It could be you have a ministry of preaching the gospel. It could be that you exercise a one on one evangelism ministry. It could be that you have a hospitality ministry – you enjoy serving cuppas. It could be that you have a passion for...

Sun 18 Oct

One of the often asked questions in the New Testament is when will the Lord return? Jesus gave hints of it in the Gospels. The letter writers such as Paul and Peter and John also looked at the question. Their response was along the lines of, “Be ready!”It should not surprise us then, when Paul pens his...
