Refreshed by Scripture…

Today has been tiring! I was out the house at 6.30, went straight to the gym…then headed all the way over to Northfield, which is a way from City Center on public transport (and a lift the last part of the way). In Northfield I met with the other Navigator Reps in Birmingham, where we…

Rhythm Has Your Two Hips Moving…Or at least, that’s how I learnt to spell the word. As I’ve started working with Navigators this month I’ve been moving into rhythm’s of life and building new (and old) habits back into my life. However a job like mine rarely sees two days looking quite the same. For…

So one friend advised us that we shouldn’t buy games brand new, because their so expensive instead get them…

The Driven Dilemma (2)

This post continues on the same lines as a previous one… I did consider trying to write a summary of that, but can’t do it without making this post double the size. Shortly after, or even mid-way through, writing the Driven Dilemma post I invited one of my friends to speak his thoughts into the…

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.)…
