  • Recalibrate…

    Recalibrate…

    Morning all, I have been away at the #fresh streams conference for a few days. It has been a wonderful few days of fellowship and having space to listen to God. Our speaker in one of the main sessions mentioned this word “Re-calibrate”. He explained that it was one of the words that the Lord […]

  • Transmogration !

    Transmogration !

    On New Year’s Eve, I posted about transformation in us through faith in Jesus. It made me think of this post from 2021 on Transmogration! which I think is timely for the year ahead as I sense the stirring of the Holy Spirit on the subject of Transformation. If you are intrigued by Transmogration then […]

  • Awe and Wonder…

    Awe and Wonder…

    This time last year my talk at church was about “Christmas Means”. I had chosen as my theme: “Emmanuel which means God with us.” “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”Matthew 1:23 “Therefore the Lord himself will give […]

  • Truth..

    Truth..

    Most people that I encounter want to know the truth. They don’t want lies, half-truths, imaginations or guesswork. However, I find more and more that people’s expectations are that they won’t be told the truth and they expect lies. If you did a poll I think the majority would now say that they do not […]

    In Green Pastures

    I was searching on my bookcase yesterday for a book by C S Lewis. I know I have it but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I have probably either lent it to someone or put it elsewhere. I easily lose track of my books and am also a bit of a magpie. I did find […]

    A Financial Storm

    We are living in a time when people are worried and anxious about rising inflation, energy costs and the economy, not just in the U.K, but in other nations. The Lord has brought to my remembrance this morning a post from November 2020 and so I am re-posting today for weighing, testing and prayer. Our […]

    #Testimony Tuesday-Pam’s story

    It’s my mum Pam’s birthday this week and so I wanted to re-post this testimony of her healing. She will be 84 and still loves sharing her faith in Jesus with others. She is doing well physically although her mobility is not as good as it was but she is coming to church using her […]

  • Being a team member (Part 1)

    You may recall me mentioning recently that I learnt a lot from my time as a volunteer team member at the Commonwealth Games in The Final Whistle. In particular, it was these bible verses (repeated below from Corinthians 12) about being members of the body of Christ that really came alive to me and taught […]

  • Let the Games begin…

    Let the Games begin…

    Morning all, for those who read my recent blog Look the Part…Play your Part you will know that the Commonwealth Games are taking part in Birmingham England (my home city) this week. Sports people from many different parts of the world (72 nations) have come together to take part in about 19 different sporting events […]

  • The Imposter…

    I was very fortunate to be invited to the First day of the Test Match at Edgbaston on Friday to watch India play England. I confess I’m not a huge cricket fan but Test matches are special and there was a great atmosphere in the crowd. People had dressed up in all manner of outfits […]
