Fall on your knees

“Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, the night when Christ was born;” – O Holy Night “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had. Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, he gave up his divine…

The Santa I Never Knew

I first got acquainted with Santa as a child, singing “Jingle Bells” in school, addressing Christmas wish-lists to “Mr Claus”, watching The Santa Claus movie. I associated Santa with milk and cookies and presents for good behaviour. But what if I told you there was much more to Santa than that? What if I told…

Free

I recently discovered a tactic to get free food from Dunkin’ Donuts, and as I am no longer able to take advantage of it given that I have moved back to a country that doesn’t run on Dunkin’ I thought I would share it with you all. Step 1 – Go to Dunkin’ Donuts Step…

Mary Did You Know (Cee Lo Green)

It has to be a Christmas song for this week’s worship post, right? And this may not be the most obvious choice – it really shouldn’t on paper work, but somehow it does, and the video is fantastic. It isn’t every Christian blog that posts Cee Lo Green songs, but he doesn’t want you to…

Jason Gray – Christmas Stories Review

This album is one of the better Christmas albums around, as Jason doesn’t take the lazy route followed by so many of just singing some carols, but rather there is a mix of classic traditional songs and new material, plus the classics are reworked with new verses and arrangements so they are fresh. The format…

Putting the dragon back into the Nativity

What if I told you one of the characters from the Nativity has been left out for many years? What if I told you a creature present at Jesus’ birth doesn’t get a single mention in any carols? What if I told you for too long we had been leaving the dragon out of the…

Bethel Live – For the Sake of the World

On monday we had a post about laying down our crowns and giving control to God and this week’s worship song is all about surrendering to God as we await the revelation of His glory to all the earth, and includes a powerfully prayer plea that God would set our hearts on fire with a…

Throw your crowns down

In Revelation the apostle John gets a vision of heaven. And in Chapter 4 he tells of about 24 elders who sit around the throne Of God, worshipping Him continually. “Each of these living beings had six wings, and their wings were covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day after day and night…

Rend Collective – You Bled

In anticipation of our upcoming exclusive interview with Rend Collective Experiment (coming as soon as I get around to typing up the recorded conversation…) this week’s worship song is a reminder of why Jesus came that first Christmas – to sacrificially show his love for us by bleeding for us on the cross. It is…

YOLO

“You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.” ~ Marshall Bruce Mathers III The philosopher Drake has this year popularised the life motto YOLO (You Only Live Once for those of you who are neither in the world nor of it). The most common way for people…
