Last Tuesday I was ready to quit. I had thrown in the towel. In my mind, at least, I was already in another job, possibly hundreds of miles away, as far from people who counted upon me as possible. I was done. The work had taken too much. The Lord had asked too much. L...

During my life I have had a few times where a question has occurred to me almost by accident. It isn’t conscious and I am often not really seeking an answer, but, sometimes when I go through difficult times, a question presents itself; ‘Why me?’.  It is common for thos...

A problem I have with my own faith, I find, is control. It may be a struggle for those around me too, in fact, I am sure it is. I know myself, that I struggle with those times I do not know exactly what is coming next. I cannot be the only one. Throughout my time here...

Recently I had to look through all of my books and decide if there were any I could give away to save some space. This took a while for me for two reasons; number one, I have a lot of books; number two, whenever I find a book I haven’t seen in a while I usually read it...

I recently broke my hand, or, more accurately, I chipped a bone in my hand. The story isn't particularly spectacular, but here it is; I was playing football (the one you play with your feet for our American friends ;)) and the very first tackle of the game I went shoul...
