Crossing OverReading Time: 5 minutes
There are many crossings a human will make in a lifetime.
Our introduction to life is just the first.
From the dim, watery, stillness of the womb, we are thrust out into the bright light of day; into this dizzying kaleidoscope we call life.
Our lungs, filled with fluid and collapsed upon themselves like waxy, paper bags, suddenly inflate; as our intricately crafted nervous system reacts to the sudden change in temperature and environment. We breathe, for the…

Beneath The SkinReading Time: 7 minutes
What’s beneath the skin of our collective Christian identity?

Grasping Hold Of Grace: RepentanceReading Time: 5 minutes
Imagine a man lost the middle of the Atlantic ocean. He doesn’t remember how he got there or where he’s going, all he knows is this endless swimming in circles. No ships in sight, he’s been treading water for hours and now he’s beginning to tire. There’s a very real danger that he will actually drown – that’s if the hypothermia doesn’t get to him first. He doesn’t realise this, however. He thinks he’ll be…
