Website feedback

September 30th, 2007

It’s funny how people think that because you have a feedback form on your website that they can speak into your life and ministry. Yesterday I got some feedback about our church website. They thought as a church we were being deceptive because we used some clip art pictures of people on the main banner. […]


September 22nd, 2007

I’ve been thinking a lot about organisation and structure lately. Structure scares some people and they feel constrained by it. While it makes others feel free as they know their boundaries. One passage that talks about organisation I found in my Bible reading was in Acts chapter six. This is where they chose the seven […]

Big dogs and barking

September 17th, 2007

I saw something really funny on Friday morning before we left for Perth. At our local Home Hardware they have two really big blowup dogs on the roof. They are two Labridoor looking dogs. One light brown in colour and the other is black. Anyway, a lady was walking her dog off the leash and […]

The Early Church

September 10th, 2007

Lately I have heard a lot from people who are wanting to go back to the times of the early church. They want to devote themselves to the things that the people of the early church did. Acts 2:42 talks about this when it says, “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the […]

Follow me

September 6th, 2007

I have been reflecting on something the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 11:1 lately. The New International Version says, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ”. The New King James Version says, “Imitate me, just as I imitate Christ”. There is a real sense of “do what I do, as I […]
