Put your Confidence in the Right Place

The dancer, in her body. The teacher might put his confidence in his intellect. The business woman in her ability to negotiate the markets. The…

Giving the tenth

‘Money makes the world go round’ – or at least, that’s how the saying goes! Certainly money – how much of it I have, whether it’s ‘enough’ and where I spend it – not only affects many of our daily decisions and choices but can be a source of identity for us, or an idol…

Prayer – the power for change

“God does nothing but by prayer, and everything with it.”   John Wesley It is easy for us, in the midst of our busy lives, to think that the things we do are the things that bring change. Whether in our circumstances, or in the lives of others, we are quick to think that our activity is…

Time for Fasting

During our Week of Prayer, we often talk not just of praying, but of ‘prayer and fasting’. So, just what is fasting and why do we do it? Fasting is a temporary season of denying some appetites for the purpose of activating others. 1. Fasting is a faith thing. By faith we deny ourselves, and place…
