Have a little Faith

Happy New Year! I know, it’s already at the end of the first month, (I cannot believe January has gone!) But all the same, here are some thoughts on Faith for the New Year. I’ve been reflecting lately about what Jesus says about having trouble in this world (see, John 16). He never promises us […]

Go sit alone at McDonald’s.

Taking a Risk. No one loves this topic, and still, everyone does. Who doesn’t want to take a risk? Yeah, risk taking behaviours, that’s what you do when you’re young right?

Wind hits your face, temporarily freezing the blood capillaries that lie fresh under your cheeks.
