When Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
It came as a surprise for us to acknowledge, but the end of our small group was difficult, much because we sensed the closeness we had always wanted had now become ours. Breaking up to allow new beginnings was important, but we would miss – dearly miss – this group that had served some for up to eight years.Assurance Of Salvation And Song
Christianity is inseparable from song; indeed we might say that song flows directly from the gospel as burdens of guilt are lifted and hearts break into song.

Rwanda was a bad place to be for the Tutsi people in 1994. Hutu extremists, who were responding to fears surrounding a Tutsi power struggle, massacred hundreds of thousands of Tutsi, as well as Hutu peacemakers, over a 100-day period.

Easter is when people confuse fertility rites with those of religious worship about a man who died on a cross. It is also the mainstay of the bars of iron or the jail of their imagination that have trapped the Children of God.Nearing the End of Days
As the end looms and people see it the Spirit will keep its promises and many will flee from the things that have caused it. Mysteries, fraud, corruption, religious myths, greed and many other faults of humanity have angered God. Some will pay a hefty price for what they have done.Emperor Constantine and the Dark Mountains
