1. “A modest proposal for the transformation of church and society”

2. Regional Events (It’s a busy February)

3. Humour


From the Australian Prayer Network:


 “So here is my modest proposal for the transformation of church and society, a simple two-point plan”:

One: Begin to think of salvation as the transformation of your entire self from death to life rather than as mere forgiveness for sin with a ticket to heaven.


Two: Stop telling people outside the church how they ought to behave and give full attention to the transformation of your own soul.


That’s it.When Christian people live lives marked by hope, joy, and a fresh, new way of living, we will be transformed people, and we will transform the world”.

The Kingdom of God is within you… 






One beautiful Sunday morning, a minister announced to his congregation: “My good people, I have here in my hands three sermons…a $100 sermon that lasts five minutes, a $50 sermon that lasts fifteen minutes, and a $10 sermon that lasts a full hour.

“Now, we’ll take the collection and see which one I’ll deliver.”




Pray with, and for, other Christian leaders in your area.
