Come to me - From the Desk of Erin

Do you have a scripture that you come back to again and again and it keeps speaking to you ? I do, and it is Matthew 11:28-32 "Come to me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest." All we have to do is simply come, and He will give us rest! That's an amazing offer! When we come to Him, He is with us, and will give us rest. So simple: "come!" "Take my yoke on you and learn from me..." I read somewhere recently that His yoke could be considered His teachings. I...

The Father Heart of God - From the Desk of Mike

I was talking to one of our young dads at church recently about the instant love that can occur for a child even when still in their mother’s womb. That child can immediately change hearts, minds and attitudes. They turn a once staunch ‘bloke’ into someone who speaks in those high-pitched tones that apparently babies understand, and they can turn an avid sports watcher into someone who willingly spends hours gazing at a sleeping child. This important relationship between father and ch...

'Apart from Him, I can do nothing' - From the Desk of Claire

A few Sundays ago Don talked about being grafted into the vine. As he spoke I recalled a time when my father had grafted my favourite plum variety from my childhood home onto our plum tree. I watched as he carefully cut both trees with his pocket knife, joining a branch from my favourite tree to our existing tree and taping them together tightly. Two years later my exisiting tree began producing two varieties of plums! Grafting is an incredible process where tissues of plants are joined to conti...

Trust in the Lord

‘We will not make it through Christianity with just intellectual assent, because there will be times when we don’t understand and when we don’t understand we will need to make the choice to trust. Neither will we make it through on our feelings or emotions, for when we don’t feel or experience something we will have to trust.’ - a quote from Chris from Sunday's message....

'But like you, I journey towards the goal' - from the Desk of Don

I know that for many people the re-emergence of Covid 19 and the subsequent lock down, at least only level 2 for us here in the Waikato, has been disconcerting. It is so ‘human’ to be thrown by things that break into our ‘normal’ and threaten the things we know and feel somewhat comfortable with. Our plans, dreams and hopes can be all be put on hold by things that seem to be completely out of our control. Even things that we imagined were ‘God’s plans’ for us can be ...
