Looking Back

Better Christian leaders than I have their end of year messages planned well in advance. Many have probably been edited before December 1st. Me? It’s December 31st, and I thought I ought to get something out! So I will probably miss a lot – but what you get is genuine, even down to the typos.…

Nativity Star

The Christmas Star

One of the most unusual events, celebrated at Christmastime, is the account of the Christmas Star. This is mentioned in Matthew 2. But what was the event all about? It seemed to involve a star, and a group of Wise Men or Astrologers from the East. What an unusual mix? What can we make of…


Printers vs the Environment

I happen to have an Epson multi-function inkjet printer. It works well. But I have a complaint to make. And my complaint is not directed solely at Epson. I have used other printers in the past, and have come up against the same issue. The issue is to do with recycling. Epson claims to be…


Remembrance Day 2014

The British know how to perform solemn, sombre majestic ceremonies better than most. The Queen leads the tributes at the Cenotaph, as Britain commemorates those who gave their lives for our freedom. Among the members of the Royal Family who laid wreaths were the Duke of York, and Prince Harry, both of whom have seen…


Level 42: Lessons in Love

I found a great video of one of my favorite songs from this group of aging rockers. Did I ever mention that I was at the same school as keyboard player Mike Lindup – though obviously he was a lot older than me! (well, about a year older, anyway)

Guy Fawkes

A Plot to Overthrow the Government

It was a terrorist plot, that would have struck at the heart of government, had it succeeded, and would have set back the cause of freedom and religious liberty by a century. Or maybe you take the opposite view – because one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. The Head of State was due…

Let the Lion Roar

Let the Lion Roar

A Review I am minded that David Pawson, in his book “Defending Christian Zionism”, has noted two extremes of theology regarding Israel. The first is found among certain, though not all, dispensationalists. This is a view known as dual covenant. It teaches that the Jews will be saved simply because they are Jews. Therefore, there…


Poppy Appeal 2014

This year’s Poppy Appeal by the Royal British Legion is particularly poignant, it is the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The 1914-1918 War was, of course, the war that was supposed to end all wars. Yet, several wars later, British and American servicemen are still giving their lives in the…

7 Wonders Museum: New Website

As the new director of the 7 Wonders Creation Museum, at Silverlake, WA (on the road to Mount St Helens) I have put together a new website for the center. It is at 7wondersmuseum.org – though if you forget the .org and use either .com or .net, you will find that they will divert to…

Encouragements and Requests

We have now done 5 full days at the 7 Wonders Museum. And that link works! The new website is now online, though it will need some extra stuff added soon, such as a webstore. So, let’s start with the encouragements. We have been kept busy with visitors to the museum. Some of them have…
