Where have we been?

We just need to get something back on here because it has been sooooo long. I guess that one of the reasons is that we've been posting and commenting so much on the Scroll for the last few months that we've not given ourselves time to post on our very own blogsite. Besides, I guess we are thinking, "Well, who's going to notice anyway?" But, that's not the point is it! We are as committed to biblical equality as ever and circumstances only dictate that it is even more of a necessity. Our difficulty at the moment is finding a church that is as fully committed to equality as we are. Some appear to be but on closer examination may have given some freedoms for women to be involved in certain aspects of ministry but, are still a closed book when it comes to who is the boss in the home. The whole headship thing. That's the sticking point. Many churches are keen to tell us how far they have come and what concessions they are prepared to make, but balk at the headship in the home question. Anyway, it's not as if we are not finding enough to do and churches to visit in the meantime. Thankfully God knows.

Disappointment - AW Tozer

I was really excited when I got hold of one of the latest AW Tozer books that was compiled by James L. Snyder, "The Crucified Life". When I began pastoring some 40 years ago I had everything that Tozer had written and they were incredibly formative in my approach to ministry. So to come across fresh material of Tozer's reignited the passion and got me looking at some of the other classics, like "The Pursuit of God" and "Knowledge of the Holy." Not content with that I started hunting around for anything Tozer on the internet and discovered that there is a biography out written by Lyle Dorsett, titled, "A Passion for God: The Spiritual Journey of A.W. Tozer." Then I read some reviews, of which there were many, but I was struck by the recurring theme that Tozer was a loner who was not even close to his wife and 7 children. This spiritual giant of a man was as alone in his death as he was in life. One of his colleagues noted that one of the last…

NO MORE POSTS ...

We are sorry to have to say that we are not going to post any more blogs on this site. The last post has been deleted because we couldn't alter the text size and colour, no matter how often we edited it?

We understand that it is virtually impossible to remove a blogsite from blogger so the site will be dormant. Sorry if you have visited and found it disappointing. We may blog again at a future time.




50th ANNIVERSARY - Trevor's Story

On the occasion of our 50th wedding anniversary we both had the thought of writing a post about our journey from our own perspective. Liz has covered a good deal of that in her post and I had written a post too but before mine could be published the computer somehow confused the two and mine disappeared? Have had several goes at finding it but it looks as though I am going to have to revisit my thoughts and write the whole post again.

I think that the key thing to the longevity of our relationship has been its genesis. We had both decided before God that we would not enter into a relationship, on a dating basis, unless we were sure that God was in it, or had orchestrated it. For Liz this came about when she was in her mid teens, so she busied herself in work and church life waiting for God to bring someone of his choosing along. For me it was a little different. I was in the Royal Australian Navy and for a time was a typical sailor with a girl in every Port. My Christian life and convi…
