Advent Sunday

It was my pleasure to speak at our church is online service this morning on the first Sunday in Advent.

Unfortunately, a few technical hitches meant we lost the last few minutes of the message and if it appears that I lost my way in the middle… that’s because somebody walked into the room during the recording!

I hope you enjoy it anyway!

A Stirring to Pray

I happened to stumble across one of my old posts on prayer earlier today. I continue to be amazed at how faithful the Lord is at answering our prayers.

As I mention in this post, I consider it an enormous privilege to pray for my readers.

How can I pray for you this day?

Praise in the Morning, Praise in the Evening (Psalm 92 #1) – Andy Brown

Part of my Bible reading this morning was in Psalm 92. It is a wonderful psalm of praise and thanksgiving, and I think we need a good dose of that right now. In fact, we always do, but times of struggle seem to require an extra boost of worship. The psalm is one for the…

In Giving, We Receive

Our church regularly visits our local church school to give assemblies and teach classes. it is a wonderful ministry, and great to be able to share the good news with young people.

This week, the team were not able to visit in person so instead recorded a video. I wanted to share this with you.

And as well as giving the children something to think about, it also talks of the shoebox appeal. we support Operation: Christmas Child which provides gifts two children living in poverty across the world at Christmas time. If you have not heard of it before, then do check it out.

I have been thinking a lot about giving lately. i’ve said it before, and will no doubt say it again… A Christian who does not give, is like a Christian who does not pray. God has blessed me a great deal, and expects me to use that for the purpose of His kingdom.

How about you?

You may not feel like you have very much, but what has God put in your hand to use?You may not feel like you have very much, but what has God put in your hand to use?

I hope you enjoy the video!
