Glorifying God

Dead or Alive

“The moment I stop learning, I start dying.” – Albert Einstein What a quotable quote from Einstein. It is perhaps this philosophy to life which has made him synonymous with human genius and creativity! Too many of us are dying mentally, emotionally and relationally because we stopped learning from the school of life. We need…

What’s So New About Another Year?

“Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.” – Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). That is not a bad way to summarise our futility in wishing one another a happy new year. Why? Because we know deep in our bones there is no real newness. We are, in all likelihood, going…

What We Desperately Need

Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. 13 But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. (Hebrews 3:12-13). What do we really…

How’s Your Hearing?

  “Today if you hear his voice do not harden your hearts, as you did in the rebellion.” (Hebrews 3:15) I love my family. For God has taught me the most precious lessons with and through them. Many years ago, our young son saw a non-smoking sign outside a supermarket. What he could not work…

It’s Good to Feel Small

When was the last time you felt small? I was walking on the beach – while on a short break after a preaching conference overseas – and was stunned by the beauty of the sunset. The brilliant collage of the orange hue of the setting sun – simultaneously illuminating the untouchable blue sky above and…

Good (Friday) Change

I was at a wedding recently. They had a photo booth. Some of the guests cheekily insisted I take a photo of a dream chiselled, pumped-up and six-pack body. I consented and I was transformed instantly. My wife rolled her eyes. My church members rolled with laughter. Of course, it’s a laughable transformation. Me with…

An Unlikely King

  My wife and I stopped by Shakespeare’s birthplace on a recent trip to the UK. For fans, a visit to the Bard’s birthplace is a must to pay homage to this iconic wordsmith who has enriched countless. For critics, such a visit may be to throw rotten tomatoes at the man who traumatised us…

A Secret Affair

There we were. Hand in hand. Basking in our romance, in the fading light of a rare breezy evening. Relishing a beautiful moment. Catching a beatific sunset. Until we were caught out by this handphone photo. It was one of children capturing our secret affair. My wife and I love walking – in parks, by…

New Year, New Hopes

“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.” By God’s grace, my wife and I celebrate 30 years of marriage. I do not mention “God’s grace” glibly as a pastoral platitude but indeed with full hearted thanksgiving as He has blessed us exceedingly. Above all, I…

Unpacking Christmas 

We thank God for every opportunity to share about Jesus. We praise God that about 2500 children, adults and grandparents came to join us in our Christmas Services on Sunday. More poignantly, many responded to the Christmas message. The pastoral team often has a ball of time thinking up, rehearsing and presenting a faithful gospel…
