A word for our time

What do we need to do to get out of this mess? A power message from Andy Stanley. We need to go on further than the word of Jesus, “Love one another as I have loved you” But this is not a proximal thing. It doesn’t happen in our minds. We need to act.



Reflection on discipline

What is the message I am sending here: I will judge and punish you? Or I will help you think and learn.

Mindset, The new psychology of success. Carol Dweck

My own opinion, as I…

My own opinion, as I travel the world and just observe, is that many people don’t seem to be that conscious and aware of what is going on around them… and they’re definitely not willing to be intentionally uncomfortable even for a short time.

Today transcends sport.


There are one hundred chairs…

There are one hundred chairs set out. Each has a white cross on the back representing 170 000 lives lost per chair. On each seat is the name of a soldier who fell; British, Commonwealth and German. Details of their lives; their loved ones and where they lived as well as when they died.
Sobering thoughts as we sat to watch, ‘They Shall Not Grow Old.’

“As we infuse technology further…

“As we infuse technology further into students’ lives, we must hold tight to the fact that personal relationships, face-to-face interactions, and quiet reflection will always be essential to a happy life—and that the convenience and excitement of technology should enhance—but never outweigh—the value of authentic human experiences.”

“Everything can be taken from…

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

Victor Frankl

“Do you trust that God…

“Do you trust that God can and will take care of you?”

Waitingi Day

Today is New Zealand’s national day. A fitting quote from Dame Whina Cooper.

“Take care of our children. Take care of what they hear. Take care of what they see. Take care for what they feel. For how the children grow so will be the shape of Aotearoa.”
