• In Another World – Part III

    The parents of today’s high school students are doing it tough when it comes to raising their children in a cyber saturated world.

  • CMS SUMMER SCHOOL – 5-11 JANUARY, 2019

    “You want me to go to “school” in summer?? Why would I do that?!” Summer School is an annual CMS conference in Katoomba, aiming to encourage, educate and support missionaries, and supporters alike, in their Christian life. Each day has talks and missionary sessions in the morning. Afternoons are free

  • Show Family Affection

    There are many ways to love someone, including making them a meal. * A woman has just lost her father. She is trying to organise a funeral and comfort the rest of the family through their grief.  An extra homecooked meal for the next couple weeks would be greatly appreciated.

  • Starting the Christian Life

    Things are at their most vulnerable when they have just been born:  a new baby, a tiny chick just hatched, a fragile shoot emerging from the ground, etc.  We give new life special care and nourishment to help it become established.  This is also true in the Christian life. Do

  • Gong Men’s Day

    The Gong Men’s Day is known for its food. Physically, this involves coffee, donuts and a sit-down roast lunch (even with dessert). But it is the spiritual food that nourishes our faith in Jesus that makes it a great day for the men of our church. In the midst of

  • In Another World – Part I

    I’ve read quite a few books with multiple worlds and characters that have identities in each of the different worlds. At certain times and places it’s possible for a character to cross over from one world to another. Sometimes movie franchises do a similar thing with the interconnection of worlds
