Thoughts from reading Luke 21: a discipleship paradigm perhaps?

Thoughts from reading Luke 21 Here is a record of contrasts. Jesus and the twelve arrived at the Temple in Jerusalem; and they notice very different things. Jesus straightaway sees an old widow’s generous gift and points it out to his disciples. The however are transfixed and start talking about the impressive temple architecture. They […]

Spirit-led Leadership: reflections from pew & pulpit no. 1

Starting with a broken heart I will never forget my first pastorate. The anticipation and apprehension imagined will never match the actual experience. Those who interviewed and assessed me had been convinced, as I was, about my calling. God had provided for what He called me towards. But I began with a broken heart. In […]

Many of us agonise over the struggles in discipleship; but we ask the Q often in only programmatic terms and almost always remain superficial in our cultural analysis.

700 over churches to choose from?
