  • The resilience of children

    We can all agree this year has been collectively tough for all of us to some degree. Whether it was just coping with the fears of covid 19 or suffering through natural disasters, racial injustices, relationship breakdowns, job loss and home insecurity we have all had our own unique challenges to navigate.

  • A woman's place

    This topic often comes up in Christian and church circles. What is a woman's place? Is it the biblical definition? Surly all Christians agree that this is the God given role for all women.

  • Chanell Diaz STORY  -  My interesting life

    Kia Ora, My name is Chanell. I am 30 years old and of both Maori and Pakeha (NZ european) descent. I write articles for Press Services International / Christian Today.

  • Protest is a means of catharsis

    According to the dictionary, protest is a noun that describes “a statement or action expressing disapproval of or objection to something”. This description seems to fall a little flat in comparison to what’s been happening in the United States since the 25th of May this year.

    It’s autumn. The leaves are falling. The nights are cooler and lockdown (if you live in New Zealand) is moving from level 4 down to level 3. Life is slowly getting back to how things were before.

  • Diversity of the Christian worldview

    It’s a new year! And with that comes a time of reflection and change. Reflections on what last year taught us. For me, it was a year of challenges as I discovered my fellow Christians are very diverse in thoughts and opinions (which is great!) but often this can create conflict and tension.

  • Why the “ok boomer” meme is still relevant

    Internet memes are often funny but can convey a serious message. They can be a useful way to break the ice to start a conversation, especially with young people (youth workers take notes).
