Train sets and nuclear fusion

Colossians 1:15-23 We know someone who loves building model train sets. He has a whole room in his basement devoted to this hobby. He has created an elaborate little world in there. The track winds around hills, over and under bridges, through tunnels, and around farms and little communities. It divides and... Read More

From Darkness to Love - Colossians 1:1-14

Colossians 1:1-14 This is a magnificent passage! It’s the vision, the mission, the overview, the long view, the big picture… Here Paul is trying, somehow, in human words, to reveal God’s heart and purpose. I have read and re-read it, and am still trying to get my head around it. As you read it over and over, what... Read More

Philippians 1:12-18a

        I’ve got another “why?” question for Paul. Why was he rejoicing in his prison cell when he knew that some of his ‘buddies’ were taking advantage of his imprisonment, and were preaching the Gospel out of jealousy, ‘intending to make Paul’s chains more painful to him’ (v. 17)? This is a painful situation!... Read More

Opportuniday   Last week I had a dream in which I coined a new word; OPPORTUNIDAY. In my dream I was thinking, “This is brilliant. I must remember this. How can I remember it without waking up and wrecking my beauty sleep?” I must admit it sounded much more profound in my dream than it did once I had woken up and... Read More

The Prayer of Faith

Sunday I spoke from James 5:13-18. You can click here to listen to the sermon  It was about prayer, including prayer for healing. This is a difficult topic because how many of us have not prayed for healing, either for ourselves or for a loved one, or wanted answers from God about various things that concern us... Read More
