I remember sitting outside in the middle of the bush in north west Sydney. I was surrounded by people I loved who stood in a ring around a raging campfire. I was at a youth weekend. The same youth weekend I had attended since I was a teenager. We were singing loudly into the night, […]Read more "Standing in the way of worship – the Guitars Journey."
We live in a society that is obsessed with the concept of – if its bigger its better. We see this in our food serving sizes, our cars, our houses, our sexual organs, our corporations, our clubs, our muscles, our etc etc etc and even our churches. If we have 3000 people and 5 different […]Read more "Size Matters"
Told to close my eyes. To imagine my most favourite food in the world. – My mind went to Laksa. Starting with the soup. The smells, the tastes, the heat, the colours. The noodles. The different textures. The different meats and vegetables. It made my mouth start to water. I thought about the good times had […]Read more "My favourite food: the BIBLE?"
“And the call of action should be to END the PRIVATE CONTROL over our MONEY system. DEMAND PUBLICLY OWNED, NOT-FOR-PROFIT, STATE RUN BANKS IN EVERY STATE” I walked into this group of the strangest people ever. At 14, I have a feeling I was the youngest there. The eldest could’ve been in his sixties. He […]Read more "#occupythekingdom"
I was wearing a bow tie. My favourite wedding shirt, borrowed pants and shoes (that i would later repair with sticky tape). I had the honour of walking an amazingly beautiful woman down that aisle, to hand her to my handsome best friend. I’m awkward at the best of times and earlier that morning i […]Read more "Becoming the best wife: And the means to an end."
The Kingdom of God is like a boat that doesn’t sail. On the boat are 100 people, all from different nations and cultures. Speaking different languages, wearing different clothes. But singing the same song. Praying the same prayers. Loving and serving http://wp.me/p1utPe-6P. We went on outreach to Kyiv, Ukraine. And were told that the base […]Read more "Inter Praise."
The kingdom of Heaven is like a village that stays just above the poverty line by producing almost pure alcohol from sugar cane. With the proceeds the village people clothe and educate their children (at least a little) and put food on the table. As a part of a land locked country with on the […]Read more "A cross road.

This evening i spent a whole hour on the verge of tears and laughter without doing either. I walked into a soup kitchen with 7 new friends to serve however we could. Having no clue what would happen, we arrived in amongst the singing of birthday songs. Side point: I love Australians. I love how […]Read more "Being lost amongst the found and found amongst the lost."
When Randall men start to dance it is usually coupled with raucous laughter from anyone around. We are not very graceful in our movements (although Peter’s wife makes him look pretty good). But its also because we care little for what people may think of afore mentioned gracefulness. I have never spoke to Peter (my […]Read more "Dancing like Fools."
We were walking down the dirt road. A kid in a collar and tie always confuses my perception of their age. So the man that i thought was 20 was actually still in high school. He would act as my translator. Unknown to me, in Uganda, a greeting between strangers can last for ten minutes. […]Read more "Lets learn how to party."
