Were you there… when Jesus washed the Disciples’ feet?

Date 28th February 2016  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage John 13:1-17

This chapter begins with John’s account of Jesus’ final hours before his crucifixion. Over the next few weeks, leading up to Easter, we will track Jesus’ journey to the cross. In one sense, it is the journey Jesus now took to the cross that demonstrated the full extent of his love. But John, more likely,

Families of Faith: Widen the Circle

Date 28th February 2016  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Acts 16:1-5

Many of us have heard the African proverb: “It takes a village to raise a child.” In African culture this boils down to some extensive sharing of intimate parenting responsibilities among mums, dads, siblings, cousins, uncles, aunts, grandmas, grandpas and even friends. While this may seem like a strange phenomenon to Western culture we can

I AM… the True Vine

Date 21st February 2016  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage John 15:1-1

The evening series has had us looking at the “I AM” statements of Jesus. We have already talked about Jesus being the Light, the Gate, the Bread of Life, the Good Shepherd and the Way, the Truth and the Life. Each of these sayings reveals some aspect of who Jesus is. Today Jesus takes us

Families of Faith: Creating Rhythms

Date 21st February 2016  by Jim de Witte  Bible passage Deuteronomy 6:7-9; Luke 2:39-51

We live busy lives as we rush from one thing to the next. But there is one time we can’t rush, when we have to slow down; where you have to have courage to face your fears; when you need to be patient; when you need to give careful instructions. That time is the first

I AM… Way, Truth & Life

Date 14th February 2016  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage John 14:1-6

C.S. Lewis once wrote: “There have been times when I think we do not desire heaven, but more often I find myself wondering whether in our heart of hearts, we have ever desired anything else…” Mankind’s greatest efforts and greatest desire in history have been to have what Christianity calls ‘heaven’, a place where among

I AM… the Good Shepherd

Date 07th February 2016  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Psalm 23 and John 10:11-2

(MEDIA FILE WILL NOT UPLOAD) One of the greatest difficulties in communicating biblical truth into our culture is bridging the gap between the ancient contexts in which these truths were spoken and the time in which we live. In the verses we read above we hear of Jesus making himself known as the ‘good shepherd’.

As you read this passage, you can imagine the disciples arguing about who would be awarded the prestigious award of ‘Christian of the Year’.

Towards Wholeness: Cleaning

Date: 01 March 2015, 17:03 by aiims

Most of us have heard the saying “cleanliness is next to godliness“. It may remind many of us of our disgruntled parents who said it over our untidy bedrooms as children or having heard it as the justification for the Saturday morning cleaning spree in the Christian household. Is it true though? Is being clean

The right place at the right time. Coincidence? Chance? Good luck? The wrong place at the wrong time. Bad luck? Fate? Accidental? Is this how we look at the circumstances of our lives? Where is God in all of this. That was the question that plagued Naomi in chapter 1 as she wonders why she

We all have had victories, gifts or blessings in our lives which caused us to exclaim in an exuberant tone of joyfulness the word ‘YEEAAAH!’ or just the simple old, but very loud and emotionally charged ‘YEESSS!’ We all know the feeling when we experience this on the sports field, at work, school, uni or

The Messenger’s Mission

Date: 16 February 2014, 09:02 by aiims

John the Baptist must be one of the most peculiar characters of Scripture. From Mark’s gospel we know he had a strange fashion sense, wearing clothes made out of rough camel hair; we know of his diet oddness, locusts and wild honey. Some might dismiss him as a crackpot, an oddball, or a weirdo but
