As Christians, we have brilliant news to share. Every person, from each culture and country, can have hope and freedom. Their sins are forgiven and everything that causes pain and destruction has been overcome. It is incredible, but Jesus victory over sin and darkness took place a long time ago. Rather than generating excitement, telling people about his death and resurrection can seem like passing on old news.

We live in a world that tells us we should fight for our rights and that our freedoms need protecting. It’s easy to believe that life is one big competition and that there are many people who want to take advantage of us. Yet, that’s not how God describes our role in the world; in fact, his view is the opposite of this. He calls us to humility and when things get tough, we are to love our enemies.
The tagline for this website uses the phrase ‘in the world but not of the world’, a tension that many Christians are familiar with. There are also paradoxes and enigmas that exist within God and are captured in the oxymorons that describe Him. My hope is that by understanding more about God we can find encouragement for our double lives and the tensions we experience.
