Faith always wins Through!

Over Traditionalism?

We hear much about the Christian religion in the media, but we don’t get to hear of the good things that are happening around the world and all over the place?

New things, God moving changing lives, wars ending, people talking, trying to make peace, new schools, hospitals, pumps for water in deserts and much more!

What God really wants is for His believers to keep living by faith and not caught up in the deadness of ritualism and traditions!

Psalm 36:3,   Acts 10:38,   Ephesians 6:7,   1 Peter 2:15,   20,   3:6.

Spreading Out. Part-Two.

We have work to Do.

Our Testimony may not seem much to us, but to a lost world and the societies around us it is a God send. All kinds of people today around us are living in despair and darkness and many want answers to what ‘is life all about?

Jesus is the only answer and we who believe in Him should know this and want to share it with the outsiders. Witnessing ones faith is easy, we can talk about what God does for us every day in the simplest of things.

John 4:23,  Acts 26:18,  Colossians 1:6.

Celtic Saints. Part-Two.

St. David. March 1st.

We know very little about who Dawi Sant was? He was believed to have been born around 500AD in Caerfai, Pembrokeshire and died in 589AD. He was probably converted by an Irish missionary team, who arrived off south-west Wales 10-20 years after the death of Saint Patrick. The endeavour to reach the western parts of Britain were well underway by now.

David was canonized by Pope Calixtus in 1123AD. David may have been more than one person, who worked very hard in a very hostile environment to preach and teach. He is remembered by his famous words ( Gwnewch y pethau by chain) ‘Do the little things.’ It is claimed that St. David made pilgrimages to Rome and Jerusalem, but this is unlikely since the Celtic Church was hostile to Papal interferences.

A Cathedral in Saint Davids and a small church near by Glyn Rhosyn are attributed to him, while a stained glass window in  Clonard, Ireland records him as being the teacher of St. Finnian. Isaiah 61:10, Revelation 14:2, Psalm 23:4, 1 Timothy 4:8, Proverbs 30:24.
