  • Water in the Desert

    This week I have another psalm to reflect on. I love the psalms.  They are so authentic. They say it as it is!  And this the language of mission these days.  Young people look at faith when “it does what...

  • Morning Prayer - Soul Care

    This week sees the transition into the next academic year.  The freshers have arrived - students and their parents appeared on campus over six days, which resulted in a well organised start to a new semester. I have just been...

    As I sit to write it is pouring with rain outside my window. Such a change after the summer we have had. And yet the grass is already freshly green. There are times when we need refreshment too. This can...

  • Paul's Conversion - Reaching the Unreached

    This weekend we remember Saul’s conversion.   I wonder what the road to Damascus was like - a dusty, and busy highway.  I wonder if Saul was in sight of Damascus when Jesus met him. Let’s imagine Saul, a man on...
