Pastors Ponderings

by Pastors Ponderings

This week’s Pastor’s Ponderings is a challenging message written by a Jesus Follower. Enjoy! Am I Comfortable or a Comforter? I’m a great believer in the principal that if I don’t care for my own health I’ll be no good to help others. So, I set my ‘self-preservation’ plans in place and sit back to […]

Mothers

by A Jesus Follower

Like many holidays and festivals, the origins of Mothers day (or mothering Sunday) were based in the Catholic and Anglican church calendar.  It actually wasn’t about mothers at all. In the 16th century it was a day where everyone returned to their ‘Mother’ church where they had been baptised and worshipped there with their family.  […]

Courage

by Mrs Jesus Follower

Schantelle’s baptism, a few weeks ago, raised a very interesting perspective that we’d love to share with you to think about. A beautiful young woman, a wife, a mother chose to be baptised the other Sunday. It was a God-honouring service and a joyful celebration of her new life in Christ as we walked to […]

This year in CBBC, it is like we are going on a journey where the Holy Spirit is the map reader and guide.  This journey started at the beginning of the year with the scripture from Psalm 51 which says, Create in me a clean heart oh God and renew a right Spirit within me.  […]

Over the next few weeks, we will be feeding back some of the words and prayers received from our week of prayer and fasting. This word came from Tanya, and it is a wonderfully encouraging word to pray and meditate on.  It reminds us that we are all called to the purposes that God has […]

We are almost at the end of our week of prayer and fasting.  How did you find the whole experience?  Setting aside time for God is always an experience as you never quite know what He will decide is the priority for the time. It’s definitely been worth it and over the coming weeks we […]

On Sunday Daniel spoke about our corporate responsibility to maintain a ‘clean heart’ (Psalm 51).  Events like the recent outrage surrounding George Pell do so much damage to the world’s perception of the church.  It makes no difference that Pell was working in a different setting under a different denomination.  All the world sees is […]

No, Lord, You’ve got the Wrong Person!

by Mrs Jesus Follower

We all settled back to listen as the young woman stood up to share. She’d been working overseas for several years and was now home for her first break. Tentatively she looked around at us and, without warning, burst into tears. I don’t want to go back, she sobbed. I can’t do it anymore.  In […]

This week’s pastor’s ponderings come from Steve, who as most of you know is a member of the Oversight team here at CBBC. As you know we at CBBC are praying Psalm 51: “Create in me a pure heart, oh Lord, and renew a right spirit within me.”  I’ve been pondering on some of the […]
