Reformation (1500-1600AD)

Rediscovered!  For centuries, the church had been distracted and confused.  During this remarkable period, the Word of God and the Gospel itself are brought back to the centre.  Through Luther, Calvin and many others reformation is in the air.  May we learn from this era, that we might continue to reform the church by the […]

A Quest for Blessing

Genesis 27-28.9 – This is a story without a hero, at least a hero that is seen. Each character in the story is seeking blessing, but all of them seek blessing in their own ways. It is only when this family begins to seek blessing in the Lord that true blessing comes.
