A message proclaimed in gentleness

The Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of truth that they may come to their senses… 2 Timothy 2:24-26 Why is it important for preachers to guard the content of…

Jesus is my Lead Story

Louie Giglio recently gave a message talking about the vision and values Passion City Church has. I really liked the first one: Jesus is our lead story! I wanted to sum up some of the key take away points for me: The enemy will be content if Jesus remains the “lead story” for the Church…

The Favour of Man

“The focus is not Joseph’s winsome personality, but on God.” – John Piper (Providence, pg 386-7) “The LORD…gave [Joseph] favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison” – Genesis 39:21 In my reading of the story of Joseph (and with similar characters such as Daniel) who gained the favour and recognition of those…

Sunday Summary (26th September 2021) – Eating, Studying and Walking! (These are a few of my favourite things)

We have finished our first week without HelloFresh supplying our menu and ingredients for food…and overall, we have done a very good job!

This week we said goodbye to ‘hello fresh’, for those who’ve been following for a while, you will know that for the last year and half (basically, since lockdown all began) we have been trying to learn how to cook. So we subscribed to a meal plan subscription service which gives us 5 meals to…

The best part of Apple!

Some of you will know that Apple recently hosted an event announcing new (or updated) products. Including a new iPhone and update to the iPad mini as well as a new watch. …but, I can say with confidence that, none of these products are “the best part of Apple”. Yesterday morning, I had a chat…
