My kitchen is bigger than her whole house.

My kitchen is bigger than her whole house. My walls and floor gleam white and one entire corner of my lounge is well-tended, exotic jungle.   Her bed fills her entire room, save a 2-foot strip which allows space to get dressed and access the personal effects stored under the bed.  My apartment is flooded with […]

“You are invited!” He said. The punctured reply – “No thanks, I have better offers.”           The housing market is ripe                     and I’ve got to get ahead.           Business is unceasing                    and the ambitious never […]

"I sense God is asking us to get out of the way!"

Much has been preached, spoken, and written of the Great Commission in Matthew 28. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” This principle is further underscored by another ‘great commissioning’ of Jesus’ followers in Acts 1. “… you will […]

Te Āhuru Wairua
