Verging on Heresy –

Thank you everyone who’s encouraged me about my last post kicking off this ‘Verging on Heresy’ segment on the blog. It’s been cool, and I’m excited to crack on with it now. Today, my first worry about the way we sometimes think and speak has to do with this phrase: “It’s a justice issue.” Surely justice is […]

I’ve been very gratified by the responses to these videos, as people have found them very helpful in their devotions as they journey through Easter week. Today, the word is “light”. There is great hope […]

Why Christians should expect big things
