I have found myself not wanting to read the news. Following Jesus has suddenly become more real than ever. Jesus was… Continue reading Living Life at 180°

The sound of a harmonica could be heard from somewhere on the busy high street. The hustle and bustle of evening shoppers and the start of a Friday night. Joel and I went… Continue reading A Heart For The Homeless
