All Things New

Chrysalis Life

The Teacher of Ecclesiastes, looking at the natural ebb and flow of life draws the following conclusion, 'What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun' (Ecc 1:9). If we take God out of the equation life seems hopeless. But we must never take God out of the equation. Because of God's promise the Christian waits with...

Patience is a Virtue

Wait Sign

In our'40 Days of Prayer'inititiative, we're asked to pray every day for at least three areas where we long to grow in godliness. One of the points that I've begun praying for is more patience. Patience is indeed a virtue. And so I'm reminded of those verses I've heard so many times before. They rattle through my brain like some oft-repeated mantra. The fruit of the Spiri...

Living Water

I studied French for my first two years of high school. I can still to count up to ten, but that's about it. However, I clearly remember one lesson when our teacher put in a special effort to give us an appreciation for French culture.

Or at least brought under control. So I've been weeding. And it's been tough going. At first glance this plant appears to be little more than a network of leaves. All I have to do is f...

I've been planning a two-week holiday for months. Anna and I were soon off to Japan to catch up with our son, Adam, eat wonderful food, and go places we had not been before. And then Coronavirus. Two weeks ago, I contacted the booking agency and was told that it would cost $1000 to cancel our flights. We really wanted to go, and we didn't want to lose $1000. So, we decid...

Back in the 19th Century

I spent a recent weekend at Boot Camp in Katoomba with the young men of our church. We had a great time. And it rained, and rained, and rained, and rained just as it did back here at Pennant Hills. Indeed, it rained so much I had trouble getting home. Three trees fell and brought down two power poles over the road that leads to our house. As a result, our little nook of ...
