How much do you give?

It is interesting that we can notice the big contributions others make but what of the insignificant people that provide for others.

You are not rubbish, you are just dirty

You are not rubbish, you are just dirty. The dignity of the human person is immense, but we all struggle to really fathom the value of one life let alone ourselves. Christians need to have a better understanding of this than others because as Saint Paul says "we are already the children of God". In […]

Life is a box of chocolate so choose carefully

30th Sunday in ordinary time We have all heard the line from the famous movie "forest gump” when Tom Hanks Character says "Life is life a box of chocolate, you never know what you are going to get".

Make sure you get this right, what you can do

What IS in your control and what ISN’T For a person to flourish in their life there needs to be a focus on what they CAN DO. For a person to get stuck, react negatively, fail, procrastinate, remain a victim and be in a state of hopelessness, then they are focusing on what they CANNOT […]

Make way for your Potential
