A letter from your Father

A letter from your Father

My words are true, you can trust me. Even if you don't know if you can trust the words of those around you, you can trust me. I will protect your heart; you will find wholeness in me. I am your home..

  • Wear your spiritual face mask

    There has been one definite benefit I have gained from all the enforced mask wearing – I haven’t caught even a single mild case of cold since wearing these awful and dreadful face masks since last year.

  • Chronic Illness Woes

    “Behind every chronic illness is just a person trying to find their way in the world. We want to find love and be loved and be happy just like you. We want to be successful and do something that matters. We’re just dealing with unwanted limitations in our hero’s journey.” — Glenn Schweitzer

  • Sin and Grace

    “I am ashamed to say it… and yet it’s no worse to say it than to think it. You call me a lucky fellow. Of course, I am. I was a blacksmith’s boy but yesterday; I am – what shall I say I am – today?”

  • The Joy of Reading (Slowly)

    Have you ever paused a movie to consider what you just watched? Probably not. It doesn’t make any sense. Why would you pause a movie?

  • The problem with baptism

    I remember the planning that went into it. I was a 15 year old on-fire-for-Jesus Christian who had a holy encounter with God at a church camp. Typical stuff. I was convinced that God was wanting me to get baptised. This was the “next logical step” in my “Christian walk” and nothing was going to stop me.*

  • On self-care, the cup metaphor and Jesus

    Self-care was a buzzword a few years ago now but the overall practice which it stands for remains important. We have a responsibility to take care of ourselves. To be good friends, partners, spouses, employees, volunteers, we need to be ready and able to show up to the people and other responsibilities in our lives.

  • The world has gone mad but then again it hasn’t

    Dear Christians, I am writing to encourage you in the face of increasing pressure to conform to the world. It may feel like we are wading into unprecedented times for those who want to faithfully live the way God has laid out but I endeavour to encourage you that although the pressure and persecution is different it is not new.

  • Eyes wide shut

    I live in a country that is torn into two. We are one, yet divided. We are split, yet attached. We are Korea, yet we are ‘South’ and we are ‘North’.

  • I Introduce: The God of Evolution

    Oftentimes people have been led to believe that faith is in opposition to science, that belief is different to fact, that creation is incompatible with evolution. That if one wants to be a good, faithful Christian, one must reject intelligent reason.

  • The sweetness will come

    After transitioning from high school to university in 2018, 2019 was a year of familiarity and steadiness. Where before I was navigating traffic, “stop starting” and not quite sure where I was going, 2019 was a year of cruising. Cruising to a destination I was sure I was supposed to be.

  •  NZ / Aust – bush walks / trekking

    New Zealand trecking it seems to this Aussie now having read of it over the past twelve years by our Kiwi young writers, is something akin to Australian bushwalking and camping out with a tightly packed two person tent firmly stashed away in the haversack.
