Celebrating the Sunday

(May 2018) It is a blessed tradition for us as Christians to celebrate the Sunday. In so doing, we profess the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the space of a week, we experience many an injustice and learn about many evils that occur in the world. Then we... more ...

The right questions

(April 2018) God has created mankind with a free will. He does not prescribe to us what we must do. He always leaves us the choice. You can pursue this path or the other path—but you must make your own decision. Many would rather have God take the decision... more ...

Compensation

(March 2018) We live in a meritocracy, a society in which people are measured by their accomplishments. Those who make an effort, show commitment, and do their work are acknowledged and compensated correspondingly for their achievements—not only materially, but... more ...

The experience of love

(February 2018) Young people who have never experienced any love in their lives—who were not loved as children, who had to grow up without the experience of a mother’s love, without a loving, sheltered parental home, who were only treated with coldness and... more ...

God is faithful!

(January 2018) A new year always begins with expectations: how will the year turn out? What will it bring? At such times people even venture to cast a speculative glance into the future and make certain predictions, albeit cautiously. Even with regard to the... more ...

(November 2017) This year’s motto “Glory be to God, our Father” will accompany us throughout the year. In fact, it will guide us throughout our lives. It is both a mission and a need of the Christian to recognise the greatness of divine creation, to thank God, and... more ...

Let us not be short-sighted!

(October 2017) Decision-makers in the areas of politics and economics are often reproached for only planning until the next election or shareholders’ meeting. Long-term and strategic thinking beyond the day is said to be in rather short supply. Whether this... more ...

Without words

(September 2017) What a shame—yet another minister is retiring. And this one really had something to say! No one would ever sleep when he was preaching—not even on a hot and sticky Wednesday evening after a long and stressful day at work. His words really carried... more ...

Acknowledging our weaknesses

(August 2017) Anyone who ever aspires to be anything, or hopes to be successful in life, must never show any signs of weakness. This is already apparent in the schoolyard. Be strong! And if you are not strong, then at least act as though you were! Some have so... more ...

A little sin

(July 2017) Anyone who tries to eat somewhat healthily will do their best to keep to certain rules. Once you put your mind to it, it actually works quite well. Every now and again, however, it happens that we “slip up”—a glass of wine too many, snacking on a... more ...

Isolation

(June 2017) Differences among human beings can be very enriching and fruitful. The diversity arising from the various characters, gifts and talents, and life experiences can bring delight and help us expand our horizons.  However, otherness can also be... more ...
