Why I don’t panic

I enjoy keeping up with the news and today there is a lot to keep up with! But a steady dose of this world’s news can quickly leave you negative and depressed which is why we need an even steadier dose of the good news !! Too much of the world’s versions of news will […]

Its All a Matter of Perspective

Isn’t it utterly amazing how a microscopic organism such as a virus can wreak so much havoc and change our perspective?! COVID-19 has really changed many people’s way of looking at things now. We are more conscious of what we touch, to wash our hands, to keep our distance, the importance of maintaining a healthy […]

The Pandemic of Indifference and the Vaccine of Prayer

One of the things about this coronavirus that is so unsettling is that you cannot see this enemy ! Therefore medical experts are teaching us to assume the virus is on everything. With this in mind you are much more careful not to touch surfaces where it may be lurking. They do not want it […]

HAPPY about this whole VIRUS thing?

For those who came to church recently I preached a message from the first four verses in James so if you have a Bible handy take a moment to open it and read those verses but before you do take another moment to ask God to open up your understanding to what you are about […]
