Faith

It was a great joy to  meet with American intercessors, pray in the Supreme Court and take part in the USA National… Read More

The Challenge

We stepped into the gym office where my wife and I work out most mornings between 6AM and 7Am. The young vivacious 22 year old gym instructor was visibly shaken so we asked her what was the matter? She poured out her tale of woe. Mary (not her real name) is a fourth year trainee… Read More

Heart of Man

Charles Chestnutt said, “The workings of the human heart are the profoundest mystery of the universe.

Heroes & Mentors

Star Wars & the Christmas Story

The cinema was packed, but we just had to see ‘The Last Jedi’ for ourselves. We were so fixated we took the last two seats in the front row.  The anticipation was building as the text scrolled across the star filled universe. In a galaxy far, far away, a story was about to unfold that… Read More

Make a Stand

“The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children”. These words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945), a German academic and Christian minister, still ring true today.
