Hi Church, May has been a pretty busy month and it has been great to have a focus on the bigger picture of Mission. But with May finishing I hope that we don’t put Mission on the shelf the rest of the year!!! The reality is that Mission is something that we have been charged…

Hi Church, I wonder if you watched the Commonwealth Games recently. It seems that Cairns was abuzz with Games fever. Us Aussies did really well and some of our athletes performed out of their skin. The Games were not without controversy – a couple of transgender athletes, nightclub fights and a handful of athletes disappearing…

G’day church, So we have a postal plebiscite coming up next month and so I encourage us all to be a part of the say on same sex marriage. Whatever your view on this issue, it is undeniably one of the most important decisions in our life-time because it will change the  traditions, the historical…

Hi Church, Over the coming weeks we will be covering some false and dangerous teaching that seems to be in the Church (Universal) at the moment. The first topic we covered was about the prosperity doctrine. I came across this picture the other day while pre-paring for the recent sermon about the dangers of the…

Hi Church. I’m a spinach appreciator. I use it a lot when I’m cooking. I put in in omelets, in salads, steam it, puree it and just eat it by itself. I think it is a great vegetable as it can be used hot or cold and it is really good for you too. Now…
