My Favourite Things

(Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris) I love children. This is one of my grandnephews. He is a ball of energy and fun. Best thing about him is his contagious laughter. The littlest of things – jumping on a sofa, running  around a room, being tickled, playing with his cousins, listening to a story –…

First Things First

(Glorifying God devotions by Pastor Chris) I saw this eye-catching banner outside an eating joint recently. “Eat first, talk later” is such an unusual name for a restaurant.

But obese humans are another matter altogether. Crippling weight and chronic illnesses tend to characterise us more than “cute” and “cuddly”. God’s greatest gift is not…

Star Warz

I wish you all a blessed Christmas. Our church just put up a simple presentation called Star Warz depicting life as a cosmic struggle between God and Satan over our humanity and destiny.
