  • Made in China

    The beginning of 2020 has been a wild ride and seems only to be getting started with Coronavirus on the loose. Schools, Churches, and businesses are shutting down, we’ve witnessed the great toilet paper recession and people thinking the Coronavirus is somehow linked to the beer, and in the midst of all this chaos, I’ve had some thoughts.

  • Understanding secular Aus-rock

    Christians are hated and ridiculed because of our beliefs. The Bible tells us this will happen, 2 Timothy 3:12, Romans 5:3 and 8:18, 1 Peter 5:10, there’s many more references to this—it’s part of being Christian. However, I believe that sometimes Christians are hated because of their poor behaviour.

  • Starting your own business – the new norm   

    Starting your own business seems to have become the new norm and there are numerous examples of this – mostly people who have come to a full stop in their careers and seeking something for themselves.

  • Yes or no for your teenage young people

    Nine years ago I addressed this subject in an article that essentially gave a very conditional okay with so many checks and balances that the Australian Mint 'security'  would blush. Since then a whole lot of youth social mores have changed and not least in the Christian scene.

  • Writing from Lady Lights: the Sunless city

    I cannot believe how quick time fleets – I can never catch up, though I try ever so hard. It’s truly as if time keeps a pair of wings in its closet, ready to fly off whenever I am not looking. This sneaky pal must be having a ball, as I am so easily distracted in this dazzling place.

  • Plans out the window

    The NBA, The English Premier league, Sheffield Shield cricket, AFL, NRL, A-League, The Grand Prix, The French Open and the Olympic Games all cancelled, suspended or postponed.

  • What COVID-19 reveals about human nature

    It feels difficult to write on anything at this time but COVID-19. With that being said, I am aware that there is already so much out there on this subject, whether that is news, updates from churches and companies, motivation and encouragement, or tips on hygiene and health.

  • Australia’s different 'White Flight'

  • When Opportunities Arise

    Hope in desperate times seems to be quite a rare quality that many have a hard time finding. When we consider the current times we are living in, despair seems to be the obvious option—oftentimes, due to the inevitability of things going wrong.

  • The Era of the Small Group Church is coming

    The recent COVID-19 outbreak has given us a lot of food for thought.

  • Train drivers chit chat

    With the new Covid 19 isolation rules with a maximum of two people - it might be of interest to know that are two people on the footplate – the driver and fireman (observer) on locomotives.
