If we take as a premise that there is an enduring tie that bonds relational partners in a relationship then the paper The Psychology of Youth Faith Formation: A care-giving faith? should concern all of us, especially those working with young people.

It is said that a sense of attachment resonates with...

“Then God blessed them (with His character) and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion…” – Gen 1:28 After God had created ‘man’ in His image and blessed them with His character, He empowered them to be productive in order to have dominion over all that God had created.

A friend recently shared a story of a practice in his tribe on how they medicate a wounded livestock in their village somewhere in Zimbabwe. According to him, once they notice that any of their livestock has sustained an injury, they would apply salt to the wound of the animal to prevent the wound from attracting swarms of flies, and to stop the flesh from deteriorating. Salting a decaying injury in an animal automatically dispels...

It was a great honour to share God’s word with the Vineyard Groningen Church in the Netherlands. I preached from the book of Hebrews 12:1-2 – focusing on holding on, holding out and fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. I shared three practical movements in the text that we can apply to our own lives: the motivation for staying in the race; the mandate for staying in the race;...

The bible tells us in Revelation 21 of a city, beautiful and complete in its dimensions. The glory of this city, according to John of Patmos who saw this city, was in its completeness. It was not partial nor one-sided but complete in all three sides of its dimensions. In describing this beautiful city, John says that its length, breadth, and height are of equal sizes and complete on all sides. In other words, no...
