All of these quotes in italics are from the Bible Isaiah 26:20 is an interesting verse….Come, my people, go home and shut yourselves in.Go into seclusion for a while until the punishing wrath is past Jesus also talked of a time to…

Exploring story

One day, Jack and Jim went out to the woods to play. They were walking along, as boys do, Jimmy with an old baseball bat and Jack with 3 well-used balls. The autumn leaves rustled beneath their gum booted feet, and they watched a fantail flit happily in the air in front of them, cheeping….

Topaz

At a busy show last year, I was able to have a short discussion with a young Indian boy. Remind me if you have already heard this story.   The boy had brown skin and a gold ring in his nose. I said hello, and I asked, “What is your name?” Topaz. I asked, “What…

Salt & Light

Thousands of preborn babies are murdered in our country every year through abortion. It is modern-day child sacrifice. We need a culture change.

Evangelism on the Beach

One Saturday I met a lady at the walkway by the beach when we went there to share the Gospel. I thought it was a good opportunity and I better not miss talking to her. So I drove my wheelchair up to her and asked her, “Hello, do you know the Lord?” She said, “No,…

About 2000 years ago in Nazareth, Galilee, there lived a young girl named Mary. Mary’s parents had decided that she would marry a man called Joseph, but one day an angel appeared to her. She was terrified because she had never seen an angel before. He said to her, “Do not be afraid. You have…

My Afternoon

Abortion

At the moment the government is looking at liberalizing our current abortion laws. However, we should not be making it easier for women to murder their babies – we should be making it a crime and get rid of the current loopholes that are basically saying you can murder a baby as long as you…

Keyboard friends

I have a good friend overseas who lives in a politically Muslim country. Let’s call him Peter. When I told Peter that “I do a lot of evangelism (telling people the way to be forgiven by Jesus, the Christian message) and (also more recently) to Muslims, and I’m not shy,” he said, “It is an…

Don’t Give Up!

I just read 2 Kings 19. May be why Jonah didn’t want to go to Ninevah. But God had a bigger plan. Father, please help me trust you and think like you more than Jonah. Thank you Jesus.
