Happy New Year to one and all! Can I start off my thanking those of you who take the time to log in and read some of my thoughts from time to time. I am constantly amazed at the numbers who read this blog from around the globe. It is with this in mind, alongside the launch of 20schemes, that this…
What a Wonderful World (In 16 Musical Genres)!
As you can tell I am using lots of video fillers for the Christmas season. Tomorrow I will start the countdown on my top 3 blog posts of 2012 (statistically). Then, early in the New Year I will be leaving this blog and starting over at www.20schemes.com. However, I will give plenty of notice about…
Video Resources For Grief Counselling
I cam across this resource some time ago. They are definitely worth checking out but I can’t claim to give 100% backing to them because I haven’t watched them. However, worth checking out as a potential resource. http://www.bradhambrick.com/griefseminar

As I was there for 5 days of intense meetings,…
Gay Marriage Issues: A Christian Response
I have been away in the US for the launch of 20 schemes and so I have been a bit disorganised with my posts. Tomorrow, I hope to post a review of my trip overseas. But, for today, I will link to two posts that struck me for different reasons. John Stevens link here. A really helpful (and in-depth) article on the gay marriage debate. Please take the time to read it…
The Four P’s Of A Fathful Pastorate
Another great resource from 9Marks as Mark Dever delivers a sermon on the requirements for pastoral office. Download it here.
20 Schemes Shout Out On TGC Blog!
I was encouraged to see Thabiti Anyabwile give a shout out to the work of 20Schemes on his blog recently. Check it out here. We are praying for a new wave of gospel workers and church planters to come and help us establish healthy, gospel centred churches in Scotland’s housing schemes.
Bible Resources For Non readers
I came across this site recently and wondered if it may be helpful for those of us who work with people who have little or no reading ability. Worth checking out here.
