CHRIST IS RISEN – WHAT A MESSAGE!
Picturing the Easter Story
Take time this Easter to read a portion of God's Word each day, beginning on Wednesday.
Barbara Detlefsen 16th September 1951- 30th January 2013
Barb, as she was affectionately known, went to be with her Lord and Saviour on the 30th January, at her home in Australia. Barb endeared herself to us all when she came as our Summer reTREAT speaker in 2007 and then again in 2011. Two weeks before arriving in NZ in 2011, Barb could barely walk. God graciously answered prayer, raised her up and brought her to us. We remember how our lives were touched as she took up the theme of "Courageous Commitment".
"……let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS
Why do we make them?
From all that is written and said, it seems we make resolutions to pursue and accomplish personal goals. Activities that will make us 'better' people. Eat less, eat healthy, make more money and exercise more seem to top the list. I have heard it said that over 80% find they cannot keep their resolutions. Could it be because people are more apt to promise something that has little meaning in the fulfillment of their lives, or the lives of others?
How then do we seek and realize fulfillment in our lives as we begin 2013?
As we cross into 2013 and take the time that is given to us, ask God to help you,
- walking along the road, travelling away from home,
- going to bed at night,
- getting up in the morning,
Saturate yourself in the Word of God. Remember as Moses says in 6:15-19,
