The contrasting story of Zachariah and Mary

Can any of us imagine being visited by an angel and receiving the same news that Zachariah and Mary received? Would there be doubt? Would we ask questions?

so why was Zachariah so harshly punished for questioning the angel and yet Mary did the same thing and didn't seem to meet the same consequences?

What happens when we ask God for help?

How often do you ask God for help? Often I hope! After all we are called and reminded to take everything to God and petition him for help. Not only that but he promises when we ask he will come. And He has given us the perfect gift to help us. The Holy Spirit.

But what does it mean to ask God for help? What does it look like? When we say that four letter word what do we expect to happen next?

Are you a powerful enabler?

I believe being an enabler is a privileged position to hold in the Kingdom of God. Often invisible this important role propels God's name. It lifts up churches, supports missionaries, holds families and communities together and ultimately deepens faith.

Trained by God

Maybe your right where you want to be or maybe your pondering the turns your life has taken. Maybe your in ministry work or feeling unfulfilled in a corporate company. Maybe your excited about your future or feeling disheartened by exam results but you are never out of God's reach

Keep it to yourself?

Why do Christian's share their faith with the people around them?

In these days of personal expression, multi cultural societies and extremism the new rule seems to be....

Believe what you wish, but keep it to yourself.

Please read this short poem that so perfectly explains why we talk about our beliefs.

No time for solitude

As I read Mark 1 : 37 I realised when I do stop, then like Jesus, its never long before people come looking. The phone, social media, children and commitments all start to creep in and knock on my door of solitude.
