Why we must learn about the Reformation today

Why we must learn about the Reformation today

Why do we need to know about Luther, Calvin and all the reformers?  In this episode, Michael, Ryan and Josh sit down to discuss how important church history is for us as believers, how it helps us makes sense of our world, how it encourages us, but also that we should not romanticise the period.

Active and passive singing

Active and passive singing

Singing is (or should be) an important part of our walk. The words of hymns can help us reflect upon the Word and what we learn on Sunday. Historically, Psalms played a significant role in congregational singing in reminding God’s people throughout the ages of God’s character, to encourage, to rebuke the nation and provide […]

Recommended songwriters and hymns from the twenty-first century

Recommended songwriters and hymns from the twenty-first century

I have often talked about the issues of church music; in fact, some may think it is the only thing I can talk about!  The debate in the church should never be old versus new, contemporary against tradition, but rather about what honours the Lord.  Thus, although we like traditional hymns, we also are really […]

The Christian bubble

2 Timothy 4:3 ESV For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions Matthew 6:33 ESV But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

What about Climate Change?

The Netflix documentary ‘Our Planet’, has helped re-energise another generation of climate change warriors. Along with the formation of Extinction Rebellion and the prolific use of social media, it’s not surprising that “single-use” was the most popular word of 2018 . But how should Christians respond to the climate change debate?  It saddens me having […]

A God’s-eye-view on mental health

A God’s-eye-view on mental health

I’m not going to sugar-coat the situation. I am diagnosed with anxiety and depression. Although I only sought medical attention early this year, I have suffered with these conditions for many years now. Now, I realise that having these conditions does not imbue me with a blanket-ability to discuss every case of mental health – because […]

How to deal with periods.

None of us like menstruation. It’s not nice when you’ve got something like a hangry parakeet clawing through the good ol’ uterus wall; kinda feels like you’re the stomach contents of a sewer rat. So how do we deal with this? Well, punching your annoyingly in-the-way brother, venting your inner volcano on your parents through […]

Remembering the Wars: 100 years since the end of WWI

Remembering the Wars: 100 years since the end of WWI

On the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 2018 we shall stop to remember once more all those who have fallen in conflict. I like to remember more than just the last century: for all those who have died to conflict; I think of the warfare of the Thirty Years War and remember the […]
