Have you ever spent time looking high and low for something that you just can't find – your keys, your phone, a bag, a book – only to have somebody else point to it straightaway, right there in plain view? It can be so frustrating!
It's well established in biological science that not everything a person 'sees' at any given moment is really there. Where the optic nerve connects to the retina at the back of each eye is a spot with no photoreceptors. Every image that our brain receives from our eyes has a 'blind spot'. Remarkably, our brain fills the hole so what we 'see' is a combination of what our eyes report and what our brain believes to be there.
The Truth may surprise you!
All of us experience difficulties in our lives which seem tricky to solve. Over the last ten years alone, many, perhaps including you, have experienced both good times and bad. Whether that is personally, or looking at the greater whole, we witness contrasts running parallel to one another. Whilst some gain more freedom, others suffer fear; some obtain higher living standards, yet others, ﬁnancial ruin; ﬂoods in our part of the world – drought in others. We are left constantly wondering where to turn to for help in both global matters and in daily life.
An invitation to join us in reading the Bible in 2017!

Today Britain looks set to leave the EU. The process could take 2 years, however during the campaign and with the Leave result of the referendum, with the Bible in hand there is little surprise at the result.
Ezekiel 38 refers to a great battle in the last days, which will ultimately result in God's Kingdom being established on the earth with the Lord Jesus Christ reigning as king. It is a glorious age to come when there will be true peace and plenty on the earth.
Why does everyone in the 21st century struggle so hard for contentment? What is stopping us from being satisfied?
From childhood it seems we have been programmed to want more and more. We are rarely satisfied, constantly searching for a state of contentment that we think will only be found when we get that promotion, run the marathon, get into a lasting relationship, receive a pay rise, pass the exam, win the lottery… Seeking contentment is usually unsatisfying. We become trapped in a never-ending cycle of striving, perhaps sometimes achieving, but never being truly content.
February is the month of love.
Valentines Day can be summed up in the famous saying: ‘the greatest thing you will ever learn is just to love and to be loved in return’. Valentines Day is only one day, it promises one day of love. Thankfully God’s love is not so fickle. It is eternal.
"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened". That great wit, Sir Winston Churchill, is credited with this amusing observation.
