Our Lockdown Vegetable Garden

2020-09-08T10:00:00+00:00

At the beginning of lockdown we cleared weeds from a corner of our garden in order to create a vegetable patch.  We bought seeds and plants from various sources and followed instructions for planting. It all looked very bare. Initially nothing much happened.  The potatoes which we left in a cool dark place for a [...]

Tending Our Gardens

2020-09-08T09:50:20+00:00

Whilst gardening recently, I had some thoughts. In the garden, we prune off dead or old growth to allow the plant to utilise its energy more efficiently – a plant or tree putting the majority of its energy into useless leaves or branches, will benefit it little and may even result in the entire plant’s [...]

Stay Strong

2020-08-19T09:56:24+00:00

Many of us found ourselves doing more physical exercise during lockdown. We perhaps had more spare time than usual, took advantage of the glorious weather we’ve been so blessed with, or turned to exercise as a means of mental release and relaxation during these strange and testing times.  The Bible tells us that we should [...]

The Truth Of A Lie

2020-08-10T08:50:08+00:00

Does anyone tell the truth anymore? Can you honestly say you have never told a lie? People lie for many reasons. Politicians lie to gain votes, lies are told to avoid hurting someone’s feelings, lies are told if you think you can get away with it! Lies can become so well constructed that everyone believes [...]

The Bread Of Life

2020-08-04T08:08:00+00:00

Shortly after Jesus had fed the five thousand with 5 small loaves and 2 small fish, the crowds searched for him. Jesus said this wasn’t because of the miraculous signs he did, but because he had fed them. He advised them … (Gospel of John ch6 v27) “Do not work for food that spoils, but [...]

Don’t Worry – Remember the Sparrows

2020-07-20T08:03:06+00:00

“A stressful and worrying time” is one of the verdicts I have heard recently about this difficult time we are all experiencing.  A time of uncertainty, isolation and fear.  But a feature of this time has also been a re-emerging (in some eyes) of nature all around us, perhaps because of the reduction in pollution [...]

THE UPWARD PATH TO JESUS

2020-07-06T06:04:34+00:00

“Does the road wind uphill all the way? Yes, to the very end. Will the day’s journey take the whole long day? From morn to night, my friend” (C. G. ROSSETTI) In all ages, life has been an uphill challenge for those who seek God and His Son, Jesus Christ; but today, when life has [...]

…if you’re worried!

2020-06-25T13:25:18+00:00

Matthew 26 vv28-30  “And why do you worry about clothes? Consider how the lilies of the field grow: They do not labour or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was adorned like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much [...]

The Fruit of the Spirit

2020-06-16T10:40:55+00:00

It may seem like a distant memory now, but do you recall back in early March the angst gripping the nation over how we would continue to obtain fresh food? Would we be able to continue to feed our families? Indeed, we may still be queueing for our weekly shop whilst preparing ourselves for what [...]

Good Government?

2020-06-09T08:44:04+00:00

Government is the system or group of people governing an organised community, often a state. It usually consists of legislative, executive and judiciary. Government is the mechanism for deciding state policies and the means by which those policies are enforced. Historically, forms of government have included theocracy, autocracy (such as monarchy), oligarchy, aristocracy and democracy [...]
