The Draft – A Conscription of Conscience

Vimeo Showcases Jesus Come

This year has been very busy throughout. I’m certainly not complaining though because it has also been a very fruitful year. In the summer we released the groundbreaking book Body Zero – Radical Preparation for the Return of Christ. We had a publisher all lined up, a contract signed, sealed and delivered but, as theContinue reading “Vimeo Showcases Jesus Come”

What Do You Think of Jesus?

Jesus. You might love Him. You might hate Him. You might reduce Him to fanciful notion and religious crutch. Jesus. Regardless, I have come to find Him to be irresistibly, insatiably and authentically Who He said He was: the Way, the Truth and the Life – the only reconciling way to know and embrace theContinue reading “What Do You Think of Jesus?”

The Mystery of the Spectacular Ordinary 

For several years I have been struggling to forgive a very serious series of incidents that have had a major impact on my heart and mind as well as Mairi’s. Detail is unnecessary.
