Queen Elizabeth will be remembered as the UK’s  longest serving and probably greatest ever monarch A rainbow appeared over Windsor castle today, Queen Elizabeth’s favourite home. A double rainbow also appeared over Buckingham Palace. It seems appropriate somehow. Perhaps the heavens themselves wanted to mark the passing of this amazing woman. Her public announcements showed she had a genuine faith in Jesus. As a British Christian I am more sad today than I thought I would be over the death... Read more

What really matters is not the big stuff, but the little things. As we heard yesterday a tiny acorn holds all the programming needed to produce a giant tree. In response to that post which explained the concept of Dream Small, someone shared this video of a song that talks about the simple moments that change lives. Here are some quotes from the lyrics: “These simple moments change the world Dream small Don’t buy the lie you’ve got to do... Read more

People are often encouraged to “dream big dreams”, but whilst there is a place for that, sometimes a huge dream actually gets in the way of the small steps you need to start on a journey.  This applies to your career, a business you might want to start, a relationship, and even to a church or ministry you may be trying to establish. And though your beginning was small, your latter days will be very great. (Job 8:7, ESV) A tiny... Read more

The phrase “use me God” or “he or she is being used by God” has grated with me for some time now. The desire to be used by God often comes from a noble place. A revelation of being saved by grace comes and changes your life. You realise that nothing else matters as much as the love you now know from the creator of the universe who came and lived the perfect life for you, died for you, rose... Read more

Re Today I listened to Terry Virgo preaching at Emmanuel Church in Brighton on grace online.  It stirred my heart to hear this message once again. The grace message is a message that I have to keep coming back to in order to live in the good of the wonderful thing that Jesus has done for us. If there is one thing that grace gives us it is HOPE, and a hope that is not dependent on circumstances. Terry’s Message... Read more

After a turbulent five years in many areas of my life, God has  been suddenly remarkably leading me in the last few months. Following a string of God-incidences, remarkable interventions, deliverances, and him dramatically dropping new people into my life, I am on the move to a new city – Colchester. Or at least I will be if the conveyancing goes through the way I trust it will. Prayers are appreciated for that and all the challenges of any move.... Read more

How to share one another’s burdens without carrying them Some call it compassion fatigue.   The Human body is not meant to carry the burdens of the whole world. One of the effects of the pandemic and Ukraine war has been to make many of us feel unable to really care any more about the fate of others. There is a resultant numbness towards others and we find it difficult to either watch the news or talk to someone close... Read more

I’m trying to reboot my blogging a bit as mental energy allows. Some personal matters are also taking a lot of time when my thinking is clear enough to do anything. But I would love to hear from some of you. Tell me what kind of posts have you enjoyed from me before? When I do have energy and time to write again what would you like to hear more of? It would be really nice to hear from some... Read more

Whatever your faith background I strongly recommend you put aside some time to listen to this remarkable meeting of two  of the greatest minds of our time.  This will surely become one of the most respected and widely listened to episodes of Justin Brierley’s Unbelievable?  You can watch the video right here or listen at the link below. Richard Dawkins & Francis Collins ~ Biology, Belief and Covid There is much more light than heat in this conversation and it is... Read more

I have resisted the urge to jump into the furore over what happened between Will Smith and Chris Rock. On the one hand I didn’t want to defend violence, because to smack someone in the mouth is never the answer. But on the other hand I didn’t like the way many peoole were roundeing on Will and cancelling him. Labelling him as no good and somehow undoing all his other contributions to society. It’s as though we’ve got to the... Read more
