Are you making anti-racist disciples?

Have you considered making anti-racist disciples? This is something we don't hear too much about. When we hear the term 'disciples' we might think religious context and christianity in particular. The last recorded command we have from Jesus was: 'Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them... and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.'  But there is definitely something in there worth paying attention to, even if you are [...]

An Easter Communion reflection: Do this in remembrance of me…

A communion reflection for you at this very unique time for us all... The original communion moment took place within the context of a feast... a meal between a teacher and his students who became close friends [well, most of them]... ...and i want to call us to this today. With the focus on what is happening with the homeless in Strandfontein, plus our own lockdown context, plus trying to stay connected to family [...]

#40TipsForChristFollowers: Tip #11-15

#11 Put your money where your faith is. Where is your treasure? Discover that and you will find your heart. This is an important one.

In my experience the church typically has a once-a-year money preach which is on how and why you should tithe [ten percent] your money to the church and then usually apologises for [...]

This post is going to be a collection of scattered thoughts largely inspired by a Keegan Davids sermon last night [so attribute all wisdom nuggets to him]. He managed to put a lot of good words on some of the things i think and feel and know... Disciples over Converts "Discipleship has collective implications for us and people" - Sho, this thought was too deep and could be unpacked for days. One of the biggest problems [...]

a theist walks into an atheist… (big)bang – it's a steel atheist

'a theist believes in at least one god, but denies the existence of many gods' [the skeptic's dictionary] whereas an atheist denies the existence of god completely and 'at heist' is just a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but that's not important now... a theist and an atheist - so vastly different and yet the difference between them is nothing... or 'a space' to be more precise...

a radical minimum standard [part the seconde]

Excerpt from Erwin McManus ‘an unstoppable force’ (available from Loot - http://www.loot.co.za/refer.html?referrer=85894849355 – for R170) [continued] HOW MANY TIMES DOES HE HAVE TO CALL? Why are there so many levels of Christian calling in our contemporary Christian community? Where are they found in the Biblical text? I have a strange suspicion that the nuances of these “callings” have less to do with theology and more to do with the condition of the church. Paul seemed [...]
