S07E001, Lessons from a Rubik's Cube, Endurance


In this first episode of a brand-new season Nathan and Steven explain some of the things that they have learned from solving a Rubik’s Cube.

Endurance is your weekly spiritual workout, whether you think of yourself as a beginner, an intermediate, or advanced!

Steven first learned to solve a Rubik’s Cube during a recent time of illness. Since he didn’t feel fit enough to exercise or study, but felt determined to achieve something, he sat down and had a bash at solving the Rubik’s Cube. After getting nowhere fast, he turned to the internet and learned how to solve the Rubik's Cube.

Through learning to solve the Rubik’s Cube Steven learned three additional lessons. 1) Sometimes we need the help of others. 2) There is value in writing what we learned down. 3) The importance of humility.

He goes into further detail into these less...[READ MORE]...

S04E002, Places to Pray: Dining Room, Family Prayer Time


Peter and JoJo continue their new season of encouraging us to pray as a family by praying in different places. This time they’re in the Dining Room a place where you can eat together and do so many different things as a family and take the time to pray together.

They discuss the benefits of praying in the Dining Room as well as some of the difficulties. From this discussion the table was a key selling point for pray time as it gives us a place to put things – like bibles and prayer pointers. Peter and JoJo thanked God for the variety of food we have, for God’s provision and prayed for the needy.

Peter and JoJo challenge us to pray in the Dining room, make it a habit to pray in the dining and give to others – be generous.

Details Matter, Andy B 2 Minute Video


We all need to work. In one way, or another, we work. And sometimes we work for ourselves, but many of us will work for someone else. But how we work with them is important when it comes to our desire to live out our Christian faith.

It’s easy to look at what you get paid, and decide work according to that. Actually, it’s very healthy to only work within the limits of the hours you are paid to do. Go beyond that and you’re likely to take away from someone else, get more tired and even more grumpy when what you do for free isn’t appreciated with a promotion or raise in your salary.

What we do is one thing, but how we do it is of far greater importance. Because God looks at our heart more than He does our hands.

Sure, it’s good to finish a job and for it to look good; to be safe; to work efficiently. But if we do that with a b…[READ MORE]...

Open Doors, Andy B 2 Minute Video


We all instinctively know that the best way to move through a wall is via a door way. We know that we’re not going to push the brick wall into conceding us to move through it.

So why is it so often we find ourselves straining against the walls of life, getting worn out and angry that God has somehow failed to help us move through this solid object? When, in reality, there is a wide, gaping, open doorway just a few feet away.

We sometimes talk about following God as walking along a path – that he guides us along the paths of life. We read something similar with the shepherds when Jesus was born as God even used a star to guide the shepherds to their destination.

In my walls and doors metaphor, that would be similar to God providing the shepherds with a bright light to light their path, the shepherds knowing about that bright light and the reason for it, then cove…[READ MORE]...

: A Prayer Answered Before It Was Prayed

Every day is a learning day, and every day God is still very much at work.

Read our latest testimony of God at work today!

It's often been said that when we pray we get one of three answers: Yes, No or Wait. I wonder where this one fits in with those three usual response.

A Prayer Answered Before It Was Prayed

We've been praying about how to fund replacement microphones for the ones we've been using to create buff.ly/3FF9kUE Video Resources: we wanted some Lavalier Microphones (miniature lapel placed microphones) because the ones we had been using sounded amazing, but were large and not helpful for the aesthetics of our video ie great for radio and podcasting, but not so great for video!

There was one major issue - we couldn't afford to buy the new microphones!...]READ MORE]...

Don't Force Things, Andy B 2 Minute Video


Have you ever thought to yourself that since God seems to have so much to do in the world, that you’d help Him out? You know, give God a hand to help Him answer your prayers since He is so very busy with all those prayers that need answering?

There’s very clearly nothing wrong with praying! And God desires us to be a part of building His kingdom here on earth and that includes, among other things, being those answers to prayer lifted by others.

But there is a large caveat here, however, because while it is good to be obedient and serve God by helping someone else, it isn’t the same thing to expect God to be obedient to us, and answer our prayers...[READ MORE]...

Land Ahoy, Dave Unleashed


Join Dave the Dog for the latest episode of Dave unleashed as he continues to look at creation. This week is Day Three when God created Land and Vegetation – not vegetarians!

Dave introduces Story time and Art time and tries to get his head around the order of creation! JoJo regrets calling this episode ‘Land Ahoy’.

Story Time with Dave the Dog

Join JoJo and Dave the Dog for a short story – The Creation Story Day Three – when God creates Land and Vegetation.

JoJo reminds us that God not only created dry ground calling it ‘Land’ and let the waters flow together and called the waters ‘seas’ but he also created all the plants and trees.

‘The land produced vegetation—all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants and trees of the same kind…’ (Genesis 1:12)

‘…God saw that it was good.’ (Genesis 1:12)
