Stories of Hope

Change is inevitable, but when Stephen suggested to the Jews that Jesus introduced a new way of understanding God's love, it cost him his life. You are listening to a podcast right now but just 20 years ago we only had newspapers, TV and the Radio. A lot has changed since then.

Stories of Hope

It's useful to carve out time to reflect and assess what we do and the ways we have before us to innovate and change, but it can be confronting, as we are often comfortable and set in our ways.

Stories of Hope

When we do good, it almost always makes someone else look bad and so we sometimes find ourselves being persecuted in some way. Collingwood's Nick Daicos is constantly harassed and tagged because he is such a brilliant player. It's no fun, but it is a mark of respect too!

Stories of Hope

In 100 years, 2124, very few people will remember me or anything I have done. The only things that truly last are the seeds of God's eternal love we sow into the lives of others. Oh, and the repair I did on my compost tumbler!

The disciples of Jesus were largely uneducated and simple men. They had a vibe about them though, that came directly form the Love they had encountered through Jesus. Powerful, pure, humble sort of love. An undeniable force for good. It's so simple, even Bluey has it.
