five on Friday

“If we’re going to impact our world in the name of Jesus, it will be because people like you and me took action in the power of the Spirit. Ever since the mission and ministry of Jesus, God has never stopped calling for a movement of “Little Jesus’s” to follow him into the world and unleash the […]

so….

this is what’s occurred this week. Well some of it anyhow….. I’ve loved the recent British movie classic, ‘About Time’. Quirky, brilliant, poignant relational dynamics. Progress and pain, often co-exist. And people can often cease to move forward…..Helping some people get unstuck this week has been my delight.

In any creative enterprise there are risks, and false-starts resulting in glorious and rare fruit, often unseen elsewhere.

The unrelenting faith of a life sent on purpose is portrayed in […]

loved

“The gospel of justifying faith means that while Christians are, in themselves still sinful and sinning, yet in Christ, in God’s sight, they are accepted and righteous. So we can say that we are more wicked than we ever dared believe, but more loved and accepted in Christ than we ever dared hope — at […]
