Flogging :(


Flogging - my own term for 'failing to blog'. For the second year in a row, I failed to complete the A to Z Blogging Challenge. It frustrates me that I didn't finish the challenge. I have always loved the challenge but I don't think I will try it again next year, unless my life …

J is for Jumping Around


Greetings all. I'm away at the mo, so catching up on my posts using the app on my tablet. Apologies if the post looks a bit wonky. I'm using this #AtoZ ¬†to share about being a 'Clumsy Carb Cutter' for the last 3 years. As well as changing my eating habits in that time, I've …

R is for Rampart


This is a word that is easy to pass by in the Bible. It's only mentioned a few times. Rampart. Definition of Rampart on dictionary.com says this: 1. Fortification. a broad elevation or mound of earth raised as a fortification around a place and usually capped with a stone or earth parapet. 2. anything serving as a bulwark or …

Q is for Quickening


My dad was a big fan of westerns. He was an avid watcher of The High Chaparral and Bonanza. He talked about Little Joe and Hoss, like they were mates he drank with in his local. He'd watch all the films too, from The Dirty Dozen and The Outlaw Josey Wales to more fun musicals …

P is for Perfection


Ah yes, now here is a subject I know a LOT about. Only because I've been searching for it¬†for a long long time - no sign yet. (Although the little one to the left there thinks I'm doing ok...) During¬†the sermon last Sunday morning, in Colossians 3, the preacher said that Paul's teaching was encouraging …

N is for Nephilim


Now these guys ¬†are interesting. I've read quite a bit about the Nephilim - and not everyone agrees who they are... They first appear in Genesis 6... When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were …

K is for Koinonia


Welcome to the half-way mark of the A to Z Challenge ¬†- or just beyond it. This is the start of week three and today's letter 'K' is for another word I love - Koinonia. GotQuestions.org explains the word like this:¬†Koinonia is a Greek word that occurs 20 times in the Bible. Koinonia‚Äôs primary meaning …

J is for Just when you think you know what’s about to happen, something else happens!


OK so strictly speaking, the title of today's blog post is not a theological term. But then I've been trying to take some of these complicated¬†sounding words, and make them more understandable. With this post I'm just doing it the other way around... You see, today I wasn't going to write a post at all. …

I is for Immanence


I found today's word on a blog called Rebecca Writes. I've spotted some of the terms I've done so far on her list. She quotes from Wayne Grudem's book Systematic Theology (IMO a great book). Immanence means ‚Äúremaining in‚ÄĚ creation."¬†Grudem says that, 'the God of the Bible is no abstract deity removed from, and uninterested …
