What's God Like?

Question

I recently had a revelation about what God is like. I can't remember whether I read it somewhere or if it just came to me as I was reading the Bible, but either way I'd like to share it with you. First though, let's refresh our knowledge of algebra!

x = 5
Pretty easy, right? x equals 5. 5 is the same as x.

How about this:
y = x
In this case, y equals x. x is the same as y. If we have no other...

Mother's Day, 2013

Ever since I created my Father's Day video back in 2005, I've been wanting to do a similar video for Mother's Day. 8 years later I finally did!

Created in the latest version of Windows Movie Maker, this video was shown in church on Mother's Day as a tribute to our Mums. It displays photos of mothers at various stages of 'motherhood' (e.g. childbirth, toddlers, teenagers, graduation,...

Genesis

This video was in the making for about two years before it was finally finished and debuted at church during a sermon on honouring the God of creation. It's a journey through Genesis 1 showing live footage of God's creation set to dramatic music.

The voiceover at the beginning of the video is a recording by one of the crew of Apollo 8, reading from the book of Genesis on Christmas Eve, 1968....

The Wonders of Creation

Originally created as a Powerpoint presentation for a school competition (in which I was one of the winners!), this video got updated and re-created in Windows Movie Maker. It goes through Genesis 1, quoting verses and displaying images of God's creation.

The music is Geoff Bullock's 'The Power of Your Love' from the album 'A Symphony of Hope 2'.

Easter 2008, Part 2 - He's Alive

At Easter my church holds two services: a Good Friday service and an Easter Sunday service. I decided to make a presentation in two parts to show at each of these services.

This second part was shown on Easter Sunday and displays scenes from the 'Jesus' film with a song by Don Francisco called 'He's Alive'. It shows how the disciples came to learn about Jesus' resurrection and is told from...

Easter 2008, Part 1 - This Blood

At Easter my church holds two services: a Good Friday service and an Easter Sunday service. I decided to make a presentation in two parts to show at each of these services.

This first part was shown on Good Friday and displays scenes from 'The Passion Of The Christ' with a song by Carman called 'This Blood'. It starts with Jesus' flagellation and ends with His death on the cross.

The House of God

During a session of Cre8, we were given the task to create something based on the theme 'The House of God'. I decided to make a multimedia presentation and, after searching for something to use, came across a beautiful poem by Sherri Puckett titled 'The House Behind The Weeds'. I then found some music: 'Coming Home' from Edge Church's 'One Sunday Afternoon' album, and 'Thy Word' performed by...

Part of the Puzzle

Puzzle pieces

I have a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle of a Giant Panda that myself and Mum been trying to put together for over a year now (possibly closer to two years). We started off going really well, but then got stuck on some of the large areas of black fur and brown tree trunk. The semi-completed puzzle spent six months under a bed gathering dust, but is now back on the dining table and I'm vowing not to...

Randomness, predestination and free will

Funny cartoon

While listening to the "In Our Time" podcast recently with some friends, specifically the "Random and Pseudorandom" episode, the topic of predestination vs. free will came up.

I made the statement that, as a Christian, I don't think anything is truly random - God created everything with, and for, a purpose. Just because we can't see a pattern or logic in something doesn't mean that it doesn't...
