'In today's hurrying age, I am firmly persuaded that many Christians don't give time enough to the private reading of Scriptures.' JC Ryle Whether the stable and steady, or the uncertain and fearful I find myself returning to two places again and again: God's Word and God-songs songs that anchor the truth of God's Word to my soul.

'As Christians we do not look at the Bible from outside. We live in it. It is our story.' Lesslie Newbigin Scripture is God's Word that in every place from start to finish shouts of Jesus (2 Tim 3:16, Jn 5:39). It is our story, because we are a part of God's Story History.
