BRT – Romans

Catch up…sorry no blogs for a while, just moved flat, finished exams, had a holiday, lots and lots of excuses…today I catch up on my BRT notes. I think keeping a record of these things is very beneficial for me, even if it takes a bit of effort to type them up. I will appreciate…

The Driven Dilema

Excuse my mess as I try to present God’s work in me. I read a couple of books last summer which have had a major impact on my life. Largely because they challenged my thinking about driven-ness. Firstly The Spiritual Man – Watchman Nee, admittedly I didn’t finish this book. (In fact I barely got half way.)…

Why so serious?

It has been a few good days since I last blogged, the main reason for this is because it is a half term holiday. So a lot of my schedule has been temporarily put on hold. My wife is a teacher and so we’ve tried to make the most of this week-off, in order to…

Distraction or Blessing

Our Church is a young family church, so there are a lot of young couples with young children from 0-10 years old. I haven’t counted but there might be as many, or more-than, of these kids as there are adults! During the worship (singing time), it is a common sight to see kids running between…

Vulnerability Mountain

“Mountains create powerful bonds between people. Its their great appeal to me.” -Bear Grylls I don’t get to climb many mountains at all. To be honest I think I have only ever climbed one, Snowdon in Wales, but I did it twice for what it’s worth! The first time I did it as a young…

Questions I love!

During normal term-time, I get to meet with a few other Christian-students. This is a great opportunity to get know how they are finding their studies, what God is teaching them and provide a mutual support base for encouraging each other in our faith. Exam time comes and the meetings still happen but less frequently…

BRT Gospel of John

The three things that stood out to me in the Gospel of John were 3:30 “He must increase, I must decrease”. I posted something last week about this passage. These six words really challenged me in my desire for God’s glory. When someone asks me now what the meaning of life is, or what my life…
