Your attorney is here

Many television shows give us a look at how the courts of the world work. They actually involve four characters only. The guilty person, or rather the alleged guilty person, because you’re innocent until proven guilty. Then there’s the prosecutor, usually the state. This person defends justice and must prove that the accused is really […]

The best Advocate and He’s free!

A friend of mine works for a major international firm of attorneys. At the height of Covid-19, I asked him how the company was doing in this difficult time. He said his division was doing fairly well, but the people in litigation were struggling, because the courts were closed. He added that the people with […]

Jesus adds up differently

While we were growing up, there was no such thing as Grade R. Even playschools weren’t that common. We ate, played, ate, played and slept. So it was no surprise that many of us got quite weepy when we were pushed into a classroom. It felt like a cage to us. Everything was unfamiliar. The […]

Hot, because you’re red hot

We’re visiting friends in Bloemfontein. It’s over the top; they just didn’t stop spoiling us. Three meals a day. But it didn’t stop there. Every little spot still left was stuffed with dessert and cake. First, lemon meringue, then cheese cake, and the cherry on the top: a double-layer chocolate cake. But Friday evening something […]

Free in Christ

Nowadays you find people who want to convince you of one or another faith principle all over the place. Just look around you on Sundays. People meet wherever they can in town to keep church. I’m not saying it’s wrong, but we must take care not to become so caught up talking about the things […]

No need for Doom

1 Thessalonians 1:6-10 (We are now also on Instagram. Follow us here.) It upsets me when men of God mess up. They say and do what they want and it seems as if people follow them blindly. But what they preach is so completely untrue. Like the pastor who sprayed people in the face with […]
