words about God

Eugene Peterson serves up another treat in his newest title. This forty-nine part delight directs us to lives of congruence and fruitfulness as disciples of Christ. These forty-nine chapters are former sermons gathered around the writings of key bible leaders. The shape and flow of these are measured, weighty and inspiring. Peterson’s gift is wisely […]

Curtis was an older gentleman in our church who had worked more than thirty years in the Veterans Affairs hospital. […]

Being disciples of Jesus in the everyday stuff of life is the call to all healthy followers of Jesus. Regrettably, many Christians have unwittingly embraced the practice of church as a once-a-week event rather than a community of Holy-Spirit-empowered people; that ‘ministry’ is done by some on Sunday, rather than the 24/7 calling of all believers; and […]

What is it you do? What is your routine with God? We’ve all known the guilt, and pressure and duty in those ‘quiet-time’ routines. Someone I met this week, courageously spoke of reading the bible in ninety days. Years ago I would have felt a crippling sense of inferiority! I’m really not that kind of reader, I’d fail miserably days into […]

This is a top class compilation of the best of Gospel-Centred Discipleship resources. This is a rare and significant volume addressing three layers of discipleship; making disciples, maturing disciples, and multiplying disciples. Though rooted in an American and conservative context, there is much for rich and full application for all who read this. I found […]
