Say No to witchcraft on Halloween!

We are busy preparing for three 'Laughter and Light' parties as an alternative to children getting dressed up for Halloween and causing havoc in the neighbourhood: One will take place at Kirkheaton, one at Grange Moor and a third at Rawhtorpe.

Involvement in new age and occult activities is rife in our area and we hope to teach our children to follow the Light of Christ rather than be drawn into following the darkness of the devil and his cohorts.

There is plenty of opposition, so I would welcome your prayers

Atheists join Alpha

The British Humanist Assosiation are apparently going to do an Alpha (not literally). Supported by Richard Dawkins, they are going to publicise their 'good news' on buses in London. But the liberals have had their way again! (I mean the liberal humanists - as opposed to the conservative humanists). The advert will not deny God outright, but their message will state 'There's probably no God'. Mmmm I thought this was an agnositc view?

Never mind I believe that although the idea of this advertising comes from the devil, it will be counter productive. It will probably enhance the number of those going on the Alpha course who ask: "Is there more to life than this?".

If you want to research the answers to these question click here to find out where your nearest Alpha Course is. Alternatively if you live in Huddersfield, why not e-mail me (see my profile for details) and we will set up an Alpha course near you.

Looking for a rock solid investment? (Part Two)

Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasures for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life which is truly life.

1 Timothy6: 17 - 20

Surely this is a word in season. Many people will have read this from the Common Lectionary readings this morning.

Looking for a rock solid investment?

In these days of market crashes there is one and only one rock solid investment. There is one Trust that you can trust! That is the investment that will provide life long security, total peace of mind, and a better return then you can ever imagine:

Of course the investment and Trust that I am talking about is the trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Repenting of your sins and walking with him in these uncertain times, will bring eternal life - a quality of life that can not be bettered. Everything else will at some stage let you down - but Jesus - never will!

Putting your trust in anything else is akin to worshiping a false god:

I waited patiently for the Lord
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.

He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.

Many will see and fear
and put their trust in the Lord.

Blessed is the man
who makes the Lord his trust,
who does not look to the proud
to those who turn aside to false gods.

Many, O Lord my God,
are the wonders you have done.
The things you planned for us
no one can recount to you;
were I to speak and tell of them,
there would be too many to declare.
