A few years ago I had an idea. This blog was the result of that idea. But it wasn’t God’s idea – just my own idea, which seemed like a good idea at the time.
At some stage I found I wasn’t using it much any more. At some stage I thought of bringing it back to life. Yesterday I thought: it’s time to do this. I even started transferring posts over from my main blog, and…

last night’s sermon was the best I’ve ever heard on the subject of the Sabbath. as some of you know, it’s a subject I have wrestled with as I’ve tried to understand (1) what God originally intended by giving that … Continue reading
So, you’re a blogger and you’re a Christian, aren’t you going to blog about the real meaning of Christmas and stuff? Aren’t you going to write and remind people to keep Christ in their Christmas celebrations, to remember what it’s all about, to… well, no, not exactly. Continue reading
