How to make sense out of days that require every shred of you

9 and a half years and still going... And almost a whole decade of the thunder after the lightning. It was the clap after the show, and all the rumbles that follow...  The sound so thunderous, and those waters reflecting all that glory. And there was the five of us -- standing next to the engulfing waves, making imprints on… Continue reading How to make sense out of days that require every shred of you

What the Kid’s Really Sayin’

I'd never forget it, that Christmas a couple of years back, when instead of leaping out of bed in excitement for the Christmas concert she'd been practising for months, she was too sore to eat or drink let alone talk, due to the hand foot and mouth disease that left eleven nasty ulcers in her… Continue reading What the Kid’s Really Sayin’

Making disciples

Post by The Husband The great commission is to “make disciples of all nations”. (Matthew 28:19) Perhaps one of the problems with many evangelistic efforts by the church of Christ is that we are asking people to make, but have not actually ensured that they ARE disciples first. Like produces like. If you’re not a… Continue reading Making disciples
