Living on approval


This article was adapted from a talk entitled ‘A Christian Man Gives Spiritual Leadership’, delivered at a Katoomba Men’s Convention.

Some men spend their lives waiting for the approval of their fathers, or trying to walk in their footsteps. But perhaps we need to learn the lesson that the Pharisees never learnt: to be satisfied with the approval of our Father in heaven.

Everyday Ministry

When I first became a Christian and went to a Protestant church, I noticed two things: one was that the church buildings were very small compared to Catholic churches, and the other was that everyone was different to me: they were in the main Anglo-saxon. Over the last 15 years, I have spent time in six churches, and our church buildings are still too small, and most of the people inside them are still Anglo-saxon.
