    What is a human being?

    Nicky Gumbel uses an analogy to describe the limitations of science in one of the excellent Alpha videos. If someone finds a cake then if they are a scientist they could potentially tell you what it was made of, when it was made and how it was made but without knowing the cake maker they […]

    Star Gazing

    I find the science behind the Star of Bethlehem fascinating. I have always loved astronomy and Psalms 8 and 19 are among my favourites. The heavens declare the glory of God in more ways than one. If, like me, your faith is not a blind one but uses the reason that God has given us […]

  • Basic Faith

    Basic Faith

    Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. It is impossible to please God without faith.  Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those that sincerely seek Him. (Hebrews 11:1, 6 NLT) When […]

    Coherence

    “What is the difference between a bird and a car?” I heard the Holy Spirit saying to me in my thoughts this morning. Don’t mock, God is quite capable of speaking to you too in plain English. A wagtail had just mounted my car outside and flitted about in its inherent freedom. A bird is […]

    Biblical Creativity: Summary

    God’s creation is wonderful as any, even cursory, look over it will reveal.  I have really enjoyed meditating in depth about the 6 days of creation as it is literally revealed in Scripture.  It seems every day I spend some quality time with God on this subject I get a new insight.

    Biblical Creativity: Light and Life

    In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. (John 1:1).

  • Biblical Creativity 3b (cont.): A Closer Look at Seeds

    What is a seed? A seed is a stored program.  A program is a set of instructions for doing something.  A seed stores a set of instructions for making a plant of some sort.  An acorn contains a set of instructions for making an oak, a hazelnut for making a hazel tree, etc.  So God’s […]

  • Biblical Creativity 3b: Seeds and Plants

    11 Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened. 12 The land produced vegetation—all sorts of seed-bearing plants, and trees with seed-bearing fruit. Their seeds produced plants […]

    Biblical Creativity: Day 3a Motion

    9 Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened. 10 God called the dry ground “land” and the waters “seas.” And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:9-10 On Day 3 God introduces us to flow or motion for the first […]
