Living the Message: “Are there advantages to getting lost?”

Ever feel like you have lost your way? With the modern tech we have these days you would think it unlikely that we still get lost when travelling around on foot, bicycle or in a vehicle. However, the reality is that sometimes we do still lose our way. Men, especially don’t like to acknowledge we […]

Living the Message: “Route 62”

If we were to take a road-trip along the N2 heading south towards the garden route from Port Elizabeth, we would after a while, encounter signage telling us that the off-ramp to Route 62, is coming up soon. And, if we were to leave the main road and take that off ramp we would begin […]

Living the Message: “Uniqueness”

There is no one quite like you that walks the earth today. No one with your quirkiness or quaintness. No one with you style or ‘lack of style’. No one with your thumb print or eye print. You may have noticed by now that the people around you are quite different from you. Some people […]

Living the Message: “Smallness”

You may be someone quite important on planet earth. You may hold an important position in society and have a large amount of people who answer to you. Or, you may be someone who does not have much status in society. You are way down the list of societal influence and feel quite unimportant. Either […]

Living the Message: “Prayer of Relinquishment”

It is good to plan our future. It is good to feel in control of our circumstances. But this does not mean we have the final say on the outcome. The psalmist put it this way …“This is the day the Lord has made …” Ps 118:24 We cannot make the sun rise. We cannot […]

Living the Message: “Sabbath-rest meals”

  What do you really enjoy doing?   Now, think of someone who is really, really good at doing the activity you really enjoy doing. Do you have that person in mind? The person in mind may be some kind of celebrity with a busy schedule, but the good news is that this person has […]

Living the Message: Two Sides of Fear

Late Friday afternoon the two Mary’s had watched Joseph of Arimathea place the body of Jesus in a tomb (see Mat 28:1-10). Early on the first Eater morning, in Mat’s account, the ground suddenly shakes under the ladies feet as an earthquake occurs. Suddenly there is a blaze of light as angel of the Lord, […]

Living the Message: “Forevermore”

There are many things (activities, actions, realities, dreams, etc) we should get really emotionally excited about. But there is one thing, one action, one event that should take centre stage. The refrain of this song which should still be echoing in our hearts after Easter Sunday, describes that one thing … “Alive, alive, alive forevermore. […]

Living the Message: Unholy Welcome in Holy Week

When Jesus came into the world there was no space for his family in any of the B & B’s or Inn’s. He was therefore born into the simplicity of domestic animal life, using a crib for a bed. Now that it was time for the King of Kings to leave, his departure was marked […]

Living the Message: “Pachyderm Believers”

If we were to visit the North West part of Namibia we would discover unexpected life in the semi-desert region of the Kunene. The Desert Elephants have been flourishing here for a long time, for that is what they are good at, finding succulent plants and good sources of water in this harsh terrain. “When […]
