The Serious Side of Child’s Play

Date 08th May 2012  by Ray Rus  Bible passage Matthew 21:16

Much of our thinking about how we relate children is “one way traffic”; what we as adults do for them. Do children, though, have a ministry to adults? How does God use children to be a blessing to us? What does it take to receive? What happens when we don’t?

Date 29th April 2012  by Bevan Burnes - Elder  Bible passage Revelation 2:1-7

First century believers faced stiff opposition from political authorities determined to stop the spread of the Christian gospel.

God’s Call of Discomfort

Date 22nd April 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Jonah 1:1-4

Christians mostly perceive God as a source of comfort in their lives.
