On this webpage you will find some of the topics he teaches, listen to some mp3 sermons, view some photos, read some poetry and, hopefully, be encouraged and blessed.
First, however, please read the latest newsletter.
Update May 2015
In February Anne and I journeyed to Brisbane, Australia, to see our daughter Lynette and her family - and to attend the wedding of our youngest granddaughter Emma. We were there for 10 weeks, for the first three of which we were accompanied by our oldest daughter Corinne. She arranged the flowers for the bridal party which, though beautiful, were outshone by the beauty of the bride! Emma married Luke Wright at a lovely location some miles north of Brisbane. Both Anne and I had excellent health while in the 'the tropics'; I even went cycling most days! I further exercised my lungs by joining the Brisbane Festival Male Voice Choir, thoroughly enjoying the weekly practices and the four public presentations we gave. The last time I sang in a MVC was when in university, so it was a rejuvinating experience.
Other ministry opportunities came with preaching at Wynnum Manley Alliance Church where my dear friend Bill Armstrong had pastored for many years before recently retiring.

Recent and new Material June 2015
1) I have added a new page - see sidebar - Words of Encouragement. These are prepared by a dear friend of mine who sends them to me quite often. I think they are worthy of a greater audience so am pleased to add them to my web page. Hope you are encouraged and challenged by Bills' writings. Read the first one here.
2) New SOAPBOX article - Kicking my Butt!
3) I have posted a poem written by Chas Wesley to George Whitefield in 1755 - a challenge to those who allow doctrinal differences to divide them. I'm sure you will be blessed as I am.
4) Trevor Baker has written many songs (hear some on my favourite links page). I highly recommend his web page at www.trevorbaker.ca
MY SOAPBOX - Check out what's on my mind at the moment! Recent addition.
Quote of the month: (see Quotable quotes page - renewed June 2015)
Jesus is the centre of all, the object of all, whoever does not know Him, knows nothing aright, either of the world or of himself. Blaise Pascal
Remember: Those who follow Him "afar off" can still keep their eyes on Jesus - but those who go one step ahead of Him, lose all sight of Him and walk in their own shadows.
"May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory, give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him."Eph 1:17
"That You should love me as You do and be the God Thou art, is darkness to my intellect - but sunshine to my heart!" - unknown
