ENGLISH/PRAISE Listen to Tori Kelly and Jon Batiste rendering this soft version of “Amazing Grace”.

Those that … Les merMore substance, please
ENGLISH/PROPHECIES When we look back on our lives, we will discover that we are more a product of our responses to the situations, criticisms, failures, and successes of our past — than to any other single factor.

ENGLISH I have just concluded a short holiday with my daughter, Andrea. Although I am no longer a well funded man—not the way I used to be before my early retirement—I have been able to spend well on Andrea.

ENGLISH/THE ROAD AHEAD The Naked (not nude) Pastor lost faith and left ministry some years ago, mainly because theology filled the place in his heart where Jesus should have resided.

ENGLISH / CHURCH LIFE Do you sit in church and wonder ‘WHY AM I HERE’? This happened to me quite a bit.

ENGLISH/DEVOTIONAL Sometimes it’s important to cut off other people’s access to yourself. It’s about establishing barriers. It’s about self-care.
