  • The Man Who Came from Contact for Christ

    The Man Who Came from Contact for Christ

    Sometime in early 1993, while still attending meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous, I received a call from a man who told me he was from an organisation by the name of Contact for Christ based in the South London suburb of Selsdon near Croydon in Surrey. He'd got in touch with me in consequence of a card I'd filled in on a British Rail train some months previously. I tried to put him off as I recall but somehow he got round me and before I knew it, he was at my door, a neat, dapper man called Denver...

  • Gaps and Flaws - Ministering on 15 Aug 12

    Gaps and Flaws - Ministering on 15 Aug 12



    Gaps and Flaws - Ministering on 15 Aug 12 For the past few months I have been looking at a spot in the hedge of lilacs that runs along the side of my yard. A few honeysuckle bushes are mixed in with the lilacs and during a freeze this past March 2012, a branch from one of those honeysuckle bushes broke off. This has left a huge gap in the hedge. To make this worse, that honeysuckle bush died over the summer and mixed in with the lilacs now, are the brown leaves and dead branches. ...

    Leitmotifs from an English Pastorale 2

    Yet, his inner turmoil proved an asset when it came to his acting career, and he provided some extraordinary performances in the second half of the '80s. The first of these took place at the University of Cambridge, where he studied for a term in the winter of '86 as part of their teacher training unit, before typically taking off in the early part of the new year. While the second was at Notting Hill's famous Gate Theatre, where he received some fair reviews for his acting from various periodica...

  • Leitmotifs from an English Pastorale 1.

    Leitmotifs from an English Pastorale 1.

    One thing is certain. Paul Runacles had not been born into a typically privileged upper middle class family, and so by the time he arrived at his college, he was bereft of a frame of reference; unlike the majority of his fellow pupils, weaned on the gilded sports of the British social elite. And he escaped from his college once, like some kind of hysterical gymslip schoolgirl...just the once it was...around 1971 or '72 to avoid being punished for something stupid he did. It was an utterly...

  • A Diamond in the Rough

    A Diamond in the Rough

    As most are aware, the diamond is the world's hardest naturally-occurring substance, its hardness the result of molecular compression caused by tremendous pressures during its formation deep in the earth. Though regarded as one of the most valuable of gems in the world, the diamond actually has little value in the original form in which it is found. Only after very precise cuts by a skilled diamond cutter, and then being polished to its characteristic brilliant luster, does the diamond become a...

  • Birth of a Rock and Roll Child

    Birth of a Rock and Roll Child

    I was born a Londoner at the tail end of a street called Goldhawk Road to the west of the city, and my first home was a little Victorian cottage in the long-demolished Bulmer Place in Notting Hill. You'll search in vain for this poky little street in any London map, although you'll still be able to locate a Bulmer Mews tucked away some yards away from the main road of Notting Hill Gate. On the day I was born, Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad, radical psychologist RD Laing, controversial war...

  • Vote For Faith!

    Vote For Faith!

    When I was a child, politics and religion were two such hot button issues they were considered taboo, you just didn't discuss them. In today's atmosphere of near oppressive politically correct ideals, it's difficult not to find one's self involved in some sort of political or religious discussion. Unfortunately, some in the Church have not yet realized that the two cannot be separated, our political beliefs should be guided by our religious beliefs. Instead, all too often we find ourselves concerning...

  • Camp-meeting Memories

    Camp-meeting Memories

    Camp-meeting Memories The anticipation and excitement of an upcoming Camp-meeting holds different meanings to different people. People may have a specific need they plan to take to the Lord that week. Some are looking for a closer walk with the Lord. Others may just be looking for a week spent with the Lord. Still others, go simply for the fellowship with other believers. Regardless of their reasons for going, campers leave Camp-meeting with memories that stay with them a lifetime. Getting the c...

  • As a Little Child

    As a Little Child

    And they were bringing children to Him so that He might lay hands on them; and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. "Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it at all." (Mark 10:13-15) What did Jesus mean by this? What are the qualities and attributes children possess that God expects...

  • Same sex marriage

    Same sex marriage

    For a long time, debates--often heated and emotional, have addressed the issue of same sex marriage, and whether gay couples should be afforded the same legitimacy under law as married heterosexual couples. I do not understand the importance and sense of urgency lavished upon it --either by individuals or the Obama administration. Given the high priority our President has given Gay Rights, it seems that even the dark, impending economic disaster now overshadowing this country has taken a back...

  • It's Time - 22 April 2017

    "It's Time", 22 April. Dit was 'n mooi en 'n groot dag, maar watter perspektief moet mens koester?

  • Another dream combined with more miracles
    by miepie
    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream". I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring. I also dreamed that we we...

  • Miracles and a dream
    by miepie
    Daddy gave me a dream. It was about the Pharisee and the man who smote his breast (Luke 18). He put me on the top of the Temple, and let me see them clearly. I asked questions and He answered me. It was so beautiful that I just enjoyed being up there. Daddy explained a lot to me and then I indulged those answers with hunger for more. I didn't understand why God gave me that opportunity until a few days later. While I was having a little argument with my husband, (happens in the best marriages too),...

  • How the Judges of Israel Overlapped
    by Cyberseeker
    The history of the Judges bridges the time from the Exodus to the Kingdom of Israel, however, when we sum up the rule of the Judges, a problem arises. Add them all up, plus the times of oppression such as the Midianite period of seven years, then tack on the forty years in the desert plus the reigns of Saul and David, and what do we get? 640! On face value, that's about 160 years longer than the Exodus to Solomon as stated in the official record of the Kings. (1 Kings 6:1) There is a reason. T...

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...
