When it comes to the Book of Revelation it is really easy to get caught up in the crazy images, the numbers and codes, and the visions and characters… but this is to miss the main point. Pastor Joe commences our series in Revelation by unpacking the main point of the book and the greatest […]

Permission to Suffer

by

When we ask God, “Why is there so much suffering?” we are not really asking for a logical answer as to the existence of suffering… we are more than likely asking a personal question “Why am I suffering?” And it is to this question that the bible doesn’t have a clear and neat answer.  Instead […]

Christmas Eve: My Eyes Have Seen

by

They say love is a fool’s game… because it seems foolish to keep thrusting our hope and heart on relationships that can easily let us down.  But it is not just in love that we play this foolish game.  All too often we try to find hope, security or satisfaction in things that can so […]

The swinging pendulum

by

While the book of Ecclesiastes is unlikely to be the most popular book in the bible, it does contain some passages that are incredibly well-known.  None more so that the poem at the beginning of chapter 3. Immortalised in a song made famous by the Byrds, Solomon’s poem paints a beautiful picture of the seasons […]

The vaporous vapour

by

While the book of Proverbs has shown us the good paths of wisdom that God calls us to walk and how following the voice of folly will lead to our demise, it hasn’t given us the whole story. We know that life is far more complex than Proverbs can make it out to be… that […]
