Pastor’s Pen 9 June 2017

Parenting involves wearing many hats: chef, psychologist, handyman, cleaner and nurse. I have worn all these hats and more as I raised my four children into adulthood. Yet there were times when I asked myself: Am I doing everything right? Am I doing enough? Will my child succeed in life? Psychologists at Harvard came up

Pastors’ Pen 12 May 2017

Do you remember the old song, “O Lord it’s hard to be humble when you’re perfect in every way?” Hopefully you have been humble lately, but I hope you haven’t told people what you have done.

This morning I followed my regular morning tradition. 5am, my alarm went off. That was overly optimistic! After resetting it for 5.30 I drift off back to sleep. The same thing happens at 5.30, 5.45 and finally 5.55. At 6am I bound out of bed, officially running late. We all have our traditions, which dictate

Chappy Chatter 5 August 2016

Last term we had guest speakers Dale and one of the homeless men from the Shack in Nambour come to speak to the students in Chapel. The shack is a drop-in-centre that feeds the homeless and also hands out sleeping bags, blankets and food parcels. The work they do at the shack lines up with

A great way to start the day is to “consider how we can spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24).” Do your close relationships need a fresh dollop of love? Then why not consider Love 10 or Love 20. How this works is that you write a letter to a family
