A one paragraph CV

As you know, Crossroad’s vision is God’s Word in today’s world. God’s children must be helped to use his Word at life’s crossroads. We don’t discuss themes, but walk verse by verse through the Bible. Sometimes, when Paul is direct and calls a spade a spade, we have to deal with that too, even if […]

A Partner and a Farther that works with you

I was privileged to manage two wonderful wine farms in the Boland for 12 years where I could farm as if these two farms belonged to me. For me, starting and knock-off time weren’t numbers on a clock. No, we knocked off when the work was done. When a fungicide was urgently needed, we got […]

Ordinary faith

All Christians are called to show the world with their words in whom they believe. And similarly, their way of doing must also be in line with God’s will. That is why it is so important that everything we do should start with love. The next very important building block for Christians is to show […]

All in love

Each of us has a calling. We should not make excuses. No, we must set the example for others by the way in which we speak as well as the way in which we do things. That is fairly obvious. But Paul helps Timothy and us by going a little further: we must show love. […]
