I don’t want to sound like I’m blowing my own trumpet, but New Zealand had been doing pretty well when it came to deal with Covid-19, relatively speaking. We got to a point where we had no known cases of community transmission, for 102 days! The only way the virus was going to get into […]Read More Guess who’s back, back again…
Once upon a time, I was in a long-distance relationship. We would chat every day on the phone, claim to love each other, and enjoy each other’s company. But there was a big problem… we lived in different countries. Eventually we did meet a few times, and we really enjoyed the times we had together. […]Read More Leaving a relationship with Jesus.
Another fun thing I thought to do was to list my top 10 music albums. Be warned, this will be showing my age (or lack thereof, depending on how old you are…). The Essential Michael Jackson (Michael Jackson). In my first year of uni I picked this up for a cheap $13 at a retail […]Read More My Top 10 Music Albums.
You don’t need to be told that there is a lot of shit going on in the world right now. A global pandemic, rioting and widespread socio-economic disruption just to name a few… But at 1pm today, it was announced that there are no known active cases of Covid-19 left in New Zealand. Also, it […]Read More NZ is now officially COVID-19 free!
I do not discuss my hobbies on here often, except for my hiking adventures from time to time. But with all the negativity going on in the world right now, I thought I would do something different. One of my favourite hobbies, since I was a young one, was playing video games. I still play […]Read More My Top 10 Video Games.
A few weeks ago it was Easter, normally a time of celebration for Christians, and a time to enjoy some extra days off work for almost everyone else. Where did you go this Easter? Nowhere? Ha! Me too. Well, unless you’re in a country which doesn’t have Covid-19 right now, then good for you. When […]Read More The Great Sacrifice.
The Christian God is meant to know everything, to see inside our ‘inner most thoughts and hearts’. It would stand to reason then, that one shouldn’t be able to trick God. Yet in the Old Testament of the Bible, people did just that. Enter the story of Jacob and Esau. Jacob and Esau are sons […]Read More Is it possible to fool God?
I have been living in Wellington for nearly 6 months now, yet I haven’t written about any of my hiking adventures. How shocking! Rest assured; I have done plenty of walking since then. It’s time to change that. At 468 metres, Colonial Knob is one of the highest hills in Wellington. It offers gorgeous views […]Read More A good Wellington hike to do.
I often hear from Christians that [person X] has a PhD and is really smart, and that they also happen to believe in a God/higher power. People such as Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein are often thrown into the mix. This is used to try and lend more credibility to their fanciful, often absurd beliefs. […]Read More … but intelligent people believe in God.
Like many countries around the world, we are in lockdown in New Zealand. That means everything is closed except for workplaces classed as ‘essential services’. Being involved in food safety testing, I still must work though, and I don’t have the luxury to work at home. Recently though, I started to get ‘cold like’ symptoms. […]Read More I got tested for Covid-19.
