Hope can sometimes feel like a premium we’ll never be able to afford. With rising energy costs – 80% in the UK, and that’s just the most recent rise – it can truly appear terrifying to look ahead. As Christians we are, of course, not immune from the struggles of this world. Yes, we have a world creating God who loves to answer our prayers. However, He is not a distant magician with a magic wand; it isn’t a case of using the right words, or convincing arguments to get God to give us what we think we need.
During the Second World War there were posters with “Do Your Part” These were more commonly used by the US to seek to inspire American women to get involved in the war effort, from the Home Front – working in machine shops, factories, farms and wherever they were needed. They didn’t go to fight, but they did support those doing so.
There is so much in life that can drag us down and make us give up. But, there is much reason to keep going! Andy B started a project in September 2021 – writing a book. This is a project a friend had asked him to undertake. And it’s quite a rapid turn around. But there are so many things that Andy B never got to do.
It's been a while since we last filmed, or published an Episode of Marriage Matters. Well, we're back! This week we look at "In Sickness and Health", and share a couple of times that sickness part has been put to the test! Andy and Jo
As a Stay-At-Home-Dad for more than 15 years I’ve thoroughly loved everything with caring for my family and our home. But since catching Covid a little over a month ago, discovering an issue with my heart, getting through a lung infection and adjusting to a whole host of medication to keep me healthy until the heart issue can be resolved, it has taken a lot out of me. The most challenging part is being on blood thinners. Because there is so much I can’t do, or need to seriously question whether I should do that, or not.
Andy and Jo are thinking about how 2 become one, 2 halves make a whole, 2 become one flesh, 1 + 1 = 1, or is it 2 + 1 = 5? You will just have to join Andy and Jo to find out what this maths is all about! To put it more simply, when making a marriage commitment, you go from being just you and from this Day Forward, as they say, you are a couple, a pair, married persons. What does this mean for us as individuals?
Go Deeper with Andy B, as he looks at 2 Corinthians 13:11, which explains that we need to grow up as Christians in maturity, love, peace, and in unity with other Believers.

I've spent a chunk of today creating some graphics and a draft advert for a new project we'll be launching, God willing, this coming Autumn. While I've got plenty to do preparing for our next, and coming very soon, seasons of Endurance and Little Blessings Online, I also sometimes need to switch to something different.
