Life is a journey

Whether we like it or not, our life is a journey. Even if we haven’t got a destination in view, we are still walking along a spiritual pathway. And the pathway of our life can be rough at times – it can be difficult to keep on the best track. Once Jesus was telling the […]

What is the Truth?

As we go about our daily lives we get showered with other people’s opinions, which includes good and bad advice. ‘Experts’ tell us: what we should do, what we must avoid, and what is wrong and right. By sifting through all these things, we formulate our own opinions, and we give these different sources a […]

A Kayak in heavy seas

A testing situation

Many years ago I was kayaking (canoeing), 5 miles out from Clacton in the North Sea. A gale was blowing, and the sea was wild. All the waves had ‘white horses’ on them and that made my slalom canoe terribly difficult to control and keep upright. We had decided to keep together as a pack of […]

Gospels written too long after Jesus?

There have been several people who have said that the time between Jesus′ death and resurrection, and when the New Testament was written is a long time. But Donald Campbell’s story is a contemporary illustration …  Donald Campbell is known for breaking world speed records: From 1955 he repeatedly broke new World Water-Speed records, first […]

[12] Being consistent, no problem!

Would you believe it – look at this! “Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of it’s wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.” Genesis 9:21 After such a mighty deliverance, you would have thought it was all plain sailing from now on – excuse […]
