A real yes could change your life

A real yes could change your life

Letting your yes be yes.

This small act of clarity and love in our communication, and the courage to live it out, could be the small but powerful cornerstone that makes you think about your life, what matters to you, why it matters and what you spend your time on.

Everything has changed

Everything has changed

Everything has changed… That’s a big claim. It’s the kind of claim that gets you into trouble because it so big. As they say in sales, ‘under promise and over deliver’. This claim seems to make the opposite mistake. It seems to over promise and have no hope of delivery. Until you consider the resurrection of Jesus.

Our self-existence is in relationship with others. Or to put it another way, it is paradoxically with others that an individual exists. Where there is no shared life a single human life disintegrates from the inside out.
