Savior

Safe and Sound I grew up in a very secular society with no need for a savior. My life as a child was marked with no hardship and no great lack. Always comfortable, all our needs were taken care of. My sister and I were raised by parents who are still together to this day. From the time I started being conscious of my surroundings, life consisted only of the… Read More »Savior

We are quarantined to the earth, until the deadly… Read More »In Quarantine Together

I’ll get to know more people, connect hearts and ultimately get closer to God.” That’s supposed to be the goal, right?

Poor Man in a Rich Church

Youthful eyes peering, I could not understand the sight that was before me! The grandeur, the wealth!

Search for the Cross

“Where is my cross?” I sobbed, face on the floor, on my knees, my Bible laying open to Matthew 10 (verse 39). “Show me my cross and I will pick it up!” I was frustrated and lonely. Trying to do all I could; leading the worship band Sunday mornings, putting on the youth group events, songwriter events, night-time street evangelism, and now an alternative theatre venue at the local theatre… Read More »Search for the Cross
