The Book of Micah is a relatively short book in the Old Testament.  One of the better-known parts of Micah is his statement in 5:2 about Bethlehem playing a very special part in God’s plan for our salvation i.e. being the birthplace of Jesus.  This book helps us to see...

It is easy to overlook the Old Testament book of Obadiah.  It has only one chapter and 21 verses.  Obadiah is a minor prophet, but his prophesy is far from being minor in its fulfilment.

The prophesy of Obadiah is in the Word of God so we will do well to not over l...

Joel is thought to be one of the oldest books of prophecy in the Old Testament possibly dating back to the 700s BC. And yet it has one of the most powerful and amazing prophecies in all of Scripture. In a time when there was great upheaval in the nation of Israel, when...

When I reflected on the value, “Missional Living” my immediate thought was of the Apostle Paul in Acts 17: 16-34, putting himself at risk and going out and preaching the gospel in a foreign land.

As I grow older, I increasingly see and understand the importance of living in community with one another. I have seen and experienced the joy it brings, the strength and character development it fosters, both in my life and in the lives of those around me.

This week’s Bible readings have focused on Radical Generosity. As I reflected on the readings and what came out of the first few envisioning sessions, I thought more about what Radical Generosity means and how we can live that out. I see it as being more than our monet...
