Sun 15 Dec

At this time of year it becomes a challenge to discern what is true and what is not true of Christmas. If we were to take a straw poll of people rushing about in the shopping centres and the single question to ask is “What is all the fuss about?” What response would you get? Of course it depends on how the...

As Christmas rolls around once again have you ever seen the word “Christmas” in the Bible? In fact, you will not find it. One would think that in the four accounts we have of Jesus’ life that at least one of those accounts would mention Christmas.Yet a careful investigation reveals that Matthew begins with...

Sun 1 Dec

Quite often when things are not going all that well for us that we have a tendency to be inwardly focused and look at ourselves. May be we have had a horror week and we think what have I done to deserve this. Sometimes it can be the simplest of things that tip us over the edge. You are late for work or...

One of the troubling signs in our community and our nation comes down to a matter of trust. Who can you trust? Can you believe people when they say, “Trust me!” And it is not only politicians we are cynical about. It can be a work colleague. It can be a family member.What happens if the person you are...

If you are wondering how you should speak and teach one another, Paul would say take a close look at what you are singing. You might not have thought that what you sing would encourage anybody. In fact we make excuses for why we shouldn’t sing. It is usually along the lines, “I can’t sing.” Or, “If I do...

Remembrance Day is a day set aside where a moment’s silence is taken on the 11th month, the 11th day at the 11th hour to remember the end of WWI when the guns fell silent after four years of war. For some it is a time of sadness as they remember loved ones who did not return home. For others it is a time...

Sun 3 Nov

When it comes to Judges we often have in our mind a court of law with a Judge sitting up the front with a wig on, and barristers and lawyers arguing the trial case before the Judge and a jury.That might be the picture we have in our mind, but it is not the picture that the writer of the book of Judges...

Sun 27 Oct

When something is abandoned it does not take long before deterioration and destruction set in. When a house is abandoned it does not take long before stones are thrown through windows. It does not take long before the garden is overgrown and the weeds take over, even if you define a weed as a plant that is...

Sun 6 Oct

How many signs does it take to bring about belief in the Lord Jesus? What is the purpose of signs? Of course I am not talking about a road direction sign or speed restriction sign or an oil warning sign on your car engine. Jesus had performed many signs or miracles. He had calmed storms. He had healed the...

Who did you pick to win the AFL Grand Final? Was your team there? What criteria did you use to pick your winning team? Or just may be you did not care about the football. You are now glad it is over and you can get on with watching a summer of cricket.Whatever criteria you may have used to choose a...
