Addiction and lifestyle changes

Addiction and lifestyle changes

Addiction causes havoc in many lives. It may be drugs, sugar, screen time, drinking, shopping, gambling or pornography..

  • Welcome to the Twenties

    Welcome to the Twenties. A decade flamboyantly characterised by dramatic political and social change. Hems became shorter, Jazz became popular and the burgeoning consumer economy allowed for widespread participation.

  • Is Izzy a ‘fruitcake Christian’?

    A prominent Aussie newspaper recently reported that Oz was “in the grip of an unprecedented bushfire crisis affecting three states with four killed in recent weeks” with 468 (now over 1,000) houses destroyed. The misery and heartache continues.

  • The First Time I Looked at Porn ...and How God Delivered Me  -  Part 2

    So, you read Part One and wanted to know what happened next? Well, hold onto your seat because what happened next was crazy and terrifying. And it all happened in church one Sunday. Deliverance from sexual sin, I have come to learn, is a process that one must be vigilant about.

  • A place – and ministry

    One phrase caught my eye from a devotional booklet, and which I pondered.

  • Riding the Waves of Positive and Negative Feedback

    A concept I often repeat is that we should ride the waves of positive and negative feedback, rather than being drawn into them.

  • Heated Discourse

    Yes, what I have to say relates to climate change, but no, this isn’t an argument. I want to talk about my experiences and how I’ve felt about discussions I’ve had. I may stray briefly into why I view issues the way I do but I’ll try and keep that to a minimum as what I want to talk about are my frustrations and my hope.

  • The importance of losing our religion

    The definition of religion is highly debated especially in a world where there are so many religions that look so different from each other.

  • The Scam of Sin

  • Missing persons – where are they??

    Every year, Australia has a 'Missing Persons Week', in which advertisements and publicity campaigns urge those people who have "chosen" to disappear to please contact their loved ones or the Police; even if they want to keep their current location confidential for their own personal reasons.

  • The lessons never stop

    Have you ever noticed the divide between what you think and what you feel?

  • Australia Day

    Australian is a land of abundance albeit a dry brown land with droughts, bushfires and floods aplenty. This time last year there were horrific floods in north Queensland, the last three months have been ferocious bush fires in every State. A severe drought impacts the nation.
