"As soon as Jesus was baptised He went up out of the water, at that moment Heaven was opened and He saw the Spirit of God desending like a dove and lighting on Him" Mathew 3:16 I recently had the strangest dream…a dove=landed on my head! The sensation of the dove landing on my head was so vivid and so real that I immediately woke up searching my hair for the stray bird! I was instantly reminded of the baptism of Jesus in mathew 3:16 where the Holy Spirit descends on Him like a dove. I was..

"But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favour with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son and you are to give Him the name Jesus…” Luke 1:30 On December 8th Roman Catholics around the world celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Conception of Mary.

The Christ Child Last night I had the strangest dream and I thought I would share it with you… I dreamed that a little baby boy was left in an abandoned pushchair on my doorstep. In my dream I interviewed lots of people, contacted the press and did everything I could to find the parents, all to no avail, so it was decided by the authorities that I should keep the child.

Gone Fishing! And then He told them: “Go into the entire world and share this Good News with everyone” Mark 16:15 The great commission was Jesus final parting instruction to His disciples. His parting words are just as relevant and pressing for us today. ‘To boldly go, where no man has gone before’ to coin a phrase from Star trek, is a constant call for all Christians.
