Are You Worth Persecuting? show art Are You Worth Persecuting?

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!

What Really Lasts? show art What Really Lasts?

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!

My family has been influenced recently by Taylor Swift. People are desperate to be in her physical presence. Who influences you and how do you influence others?

Rachael Farthing show art Rachael Farthing

Stories of Hope

I used to babysit Rachael when she was just a toddler and so have known and loved her like family for many years. She and her husband Phil are Salvo officers in Kempsey, but in many ways their defining ministry was in a challenging suburb of Mt Druitt in Western Sydney Called Bidwill. It's hard to measure how the love of a salvo officer impacts a life, but Rachael's ministry exemplifies this and her story will inspire you.

Obey God Not Men show art Obey God Not Men

Stories of Hope

The apostle Peter said this: "We must obey God rather than man". What seems best to the authorities or even to our families and friends, is not always the path we should take. My path has had all sorts of illogical twists and turns, but they have all made me the sort of Bryce I am today.
