The election – Praying for the parties and the people

As Christians we want to be responsible citizens.  We know we are citizens of heaven first (Phil 3:20) and so our first loyalty is to God and His Kingdom.  Yet we also know we are salt and light, called to influence and bless the communities where we live (Matt 5:13-16).  So that means we who […]

Disciples who make disciples 2

We can all be disciples who make disciples. For Sixteenth Century Anabaptists, like the illiterate Hans Nadler, this meant travelling around as he plied his trade (he was a needle seller), engaging people in conversation.  He would talk about God, the difficulty of living a holy life in these permissive days and the difference God […]
