Prayer Chain for South Africa: Just 1 Minute a Day


If Christians really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless.

Did you know that during World War II there was an adviser to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every day at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace?

There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in South Africa . If you would like to participate:  Every evening at 9:00 PM. Stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of South Africa, our citizens, and for a return to a Godly nation.

If you know anyone else who would like to participate, please share this. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.

Lord and Master


An INcontext International devotion by Cherolyn Amery
Now listen, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.’Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.’ James 4:13-15 (NIVUK)

One key principle in chemistry is that matter essentially changes in only two ways: physically and chemically. Physical changes are mostly reversible (e.g. heating and cooling), while chemical changes result in matter becoming irreversibly different (an example is an egg being cooked).

Genesis and the Big Bang


In 1915 Albert Einstein completed his famous general theory of relativity and almost immediately he attempted to solve the relativistic equations to in order to describe space-time physics of the whole universe.  His results published in 1917 correctly showed an expanding universe but as pointed out by Gerald Schroeder in Genesis and the Big Bang (1990), the prevailing theory at the time was that the universe was static or isotropic.

“Word” That Overcomes War


By Daniel Shayesteh, originally published by In context

Wouldn’t it be comforting if a word or several words had the power to stop wars and protect or rescue people from the losses and bloodshed of war and from the wounds that war leaves behind for decades and centuries?

I remember the cry of a man over the dead body of his younger brother who was shot dead by a religious guard in Tehran, Iran, because of his opposition to Ayatollah Khomeini. The older brother was crying loudly, humbly looking around and to heaven, expressing his heart-melting words and saying: “Isn’t there anything, anyone to extinguish the fire of hostility?” Almost all the people who were watching him and his powerless family were touched and tears poured from their eyes.

The Greatest Rescue in Human History

Have you ever been in a bad place? I suspect all of us have at one time or another. In 2002 my son, Richard, and I were once mock-charged point-blank by a very angry lioness in the pitch dark near our camp site . . .

Choosing Life

Prologue: An Appointment with Death

Some of us make it through childhood without directly encountering the grim reaper’s handiwork. Others are less fortunate.

One particular morning back in 1972 I was riding my bike to school. Milton Senior in Bulawayo, Rhodesia (as the country was called in those days), was named after Sir William Milton−as opposed to the poet−and has to this day as its motto the Greek for “quit ye as men”. As all attendees soon discover, this actually means “taking your punishment as a man” however far distant manhood might be in reality.  You’ve doubtless picked up the drift:  discipline was tight and being late was never an option.
