in money we trust

todays blog is a song which as we hurtle towards the silly season it might be worth thinking about

If in money we trust If in money we trust

And you bite the dust

And it’s not enough If in money you trust 

But it’s not enough

And you bite the dust
If in money you trust
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
If in money we trust
If in money we trust
No substitute
No substitute
No substitute
When god is dead
And it’s not enough
Then in money you trust
Then they call the bluff
When god is dead
And money’s not enough
In what do you trust
When it’s not enough?

Where’s God?
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
When god is dead
And it’s not enough
What substitute
What substitute
When God is dead
And it’s not enough
When God is dead
And it’s not enough

If in money you trust

If in money you trust
But it’s not enough
Then you call the bluff
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
Where’s God?
No substitute
No substitute

You’ve got to think it through again
You’ve got to think it through again
You’ve got to think it through again
You’ve got to think it through again
Got to think it through again
You got to think it through again
Got to think it through again
Got to think it through again

when will jesus return???

Driving through a country city recently, I spotted a sign posing the age old question…when will jesus return??? As a kid this was the subject of many a ‘sermon’, ‘discussion’ and ‘debate’, people became wealthy writing endless books about it, there was even a ‘movie’ or two made to try and answer that very question!!
I reckon Jesus will return when good and ready!!

Maybe the more important question is, what ever this ‘return’ might look like, is how are  things since Jesus ‘left”??

Have we stuffed things up?, how have we loved our enemies? and have we loved our neighbours as our selves?

How are we doing on the ‘stranger’ and ‘sojourner’ front?, how is the planet looking?

Who have we in excluded rather than include?

Has ‘justice been served’?

Has God’s will been on earth as in heaven?

Have I though of  the needs and desirers others over my own?

Now ask yourself, when Jesus ‘returns’, how ready are you?

If I think my faith and you think your faith is is about ‘pie in the sky in the sweet by and by, you’d be wrong, its more like ‘steak on the plate while we wait’!!

before worrying over Jesus return, ask yourself has justice been done?, have we loved kindness? and have we walked humbly with God?… THEN if time permits spent time concerning yourself with Jesus return, OR get on with humbly walking with God….. you might run into Jesus along the way!!!

beautiful feet

Speaking recently  with a friend as he told me the story of his adopted sisters arrival,
he himself is adopted, and this story was relayed to me as we prepared the funeral service for their father.

He described a time when his dad was still in bed and he and his wife heard the foot steps of their daughter as a toddler coming down the hall , on hearing her foot steps, that they knew they had made the right choice in adopting her.

It is said ‘how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news’.


As we  many of us prepare to celebrate the arrival of  Jesus, and as we consider those who were trusted with the task of bearing the good news, the dodgy, the mistrusted, the ‘low life’, the confused, the bewildered, the marginalised and the vunerable it  is true of them that they indeed had beautiful feet.

GOOD TIDINGS (NEWS) OF GREAT JOY

DONT BE AFRAID I BRING GOOD NEWS OF GREAT JOY

FOR ALL PEOPLE
