Priceless!

by Simon Chen

Priceless. What is he/she trying to say? One of the fun things about enjoying art is trying to decipher the artist’s message. Whether it is a song, a movie, a drawing, a painting, a sculpture, or whatever other medium the artist is using, there is usually a message. But what is it? For years, artists […]

God’s view from the top

by Simon Chen

Australia seems to be having a leadership crisis. Or at least an outsider might think that. We go through leaders more quickly than catty contestants on the Bachelor. Take for instance, our national broadcaster. In almost a week, the ABC lost both chairman of the board and the managing director. Reasons include interference, bias, leadership […]

50% Jesus, 75% Jesus, or 100% Jesus?

Honey is good for all sorts of things. Nowadays we usually use it as a sweetener but it also has all sorts of health benefits. Back in the day (like a long time ago), it was used to treat cuts and scrapes. For some reason, honey has antibacterial properties. Even now, if one has a […]

How do people know you are a disciple of Jesus?

by Simon Chen

What are followers of Jesus most known for? For those who read the news often, Christians are often associated with all sorts of things. Quite a few are negative and to be honest are quite justified.

Did you see the blood moon? Apparently it is a sign that the end is nigh. Of course, add that to the fact that Mars is the closest to earth since 2003, and it is sure and certain we are all doomed. Don’t you know Mars is the god of war? And that in 2003, […]

The Big Dry

by Simon Chen

If you ever move West, get a rain gauge. It is interesting how many conversations can happen around those devices and what’s in them. “How much did you get?” is something everyone would be interested to know. It is highly likely that for most people East of the Great Dividing Range, the drought is just […]

Of kids in caves and captivity

by Simon Chen

Yay! The kids are free! Other than France winning the world cup, the story of the Thai football team stuck in a cave has been in the news a lot of late. It is great news as many professionals thought it would be impossible to get them all out alive. It makes us wonder what […]
