The Honey and the Pears- ‘Such was my heart’

I was saddened recently by what I read on a friend’s Facebook feed. A year ago he had invested in two beehives. Following a year of hard-work, providing all that the bees needed to thrive and flourish, he was rewarded with a great harvest of honey for expectant friends and family. My friend returned to…

One thing is Needful

Covid has brought its own challenges and sorrows to each of us since its arrival. For us as a family, living under a different local authority and health board from many of our loved ones has been hard. Recently, we’ve been allowed to see them for a very limited number of ‘essential’ reasons. This begs…

Spiritual Discipline : Witnessing

“This has been 15 years of hard work and dedication. Dedicating my life to the sport, putting everything on hold, all my social life, things that I wanted to do with my friends, my family, my fiancée back home. Things I’ve wanted to do I’ve missed out on all for this moment, it’s all been…

Spiritual Disciplines 2- Scripture

Donald Whitney in his Book on the Spiritual Disciplines says: “Spiritual Disciplines are the God-given means we are to use in the Spirit-filled pursuit of Godliness. Godly people are discipled people. It has always been so.” However lest we think that spiritual growth is about our determination and resolve, Whitney goes on to remind us…

Onwards and Upwards! – Introducing the Spiritual Disciples – Prayer

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.” Hebrews 12:1-2 Just as athletes…

Yours is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory

It may come as a surprise to find that most modern translations (e.g. NIV, NLT, ESV) do not include the last line of the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew’s Gospel. Most scholars now think that it wasn’t in the original manuscript. Whether you agree with this or not we certainly ought to concur that the concluding…
