On Sept 2nd, I started on a challenge to run 5km in under 25 minutes, a goal of running a 5 minute/km average. I ‘m not a huge fan of exercise, least of all running so I started skating. That first week, I skated over 50km. As great as that sounds, it wasn’t the idea of getting […]
I remember the first time that someone asked me about my faith and I freaked out. I wasn’t sure what to say or how to explain it. As a new Christian all I had was ‘I just believe’. A powerful statement of my faith in the hope that Jesus offered but without explainable foundation.

It’s Australia Day and it’s always nice to celebrate what’s great about Australia. Sure, we’re not the perfect nation and we have our flaws but Australia Day is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the things we love.
