  • The variety of a healthy prayer life

    There seems to be a constant revolving process of calling people to pray, them experiencing an initial burst, only to be followed by a regression to where they first began.

  • Biblical Catharsis

    For every believer, there is the threat of being toppled by strong emotions. Life’s challenges engender a variety of emotional reactions. These can derail any believer. Anger, guilt, sadness, anxiety, rejection are the culprits. But these emotions don’t have to distance us from God, they can pave the way into deeper levels of relationship.

  • The tension in truth

    Truth isn’t as black and white as we may think.

  • The cycle of mundane labour

    We are in an age of mass production. We can produce consumer goods at a startlingly rate. Unfortunately for some, this requires mundane labour to be performed.

  • Reflections on purpose

    Beneath every decision we make is a hidden motivator. Purpose. Whether consciously or subconsciously we move in the direction of our purpose. When we commit a kind deed, it comes from somewhere deep inside of us. A yearning to fulfil what is somehow empty.
