The Word

Before there was you were. The Word one with the Father. A word was whispered into the void and darkness was replaced with light. Light in its countless millions of worlds. Arrayed in the night’s sky like a necklace of iridescent gems. But the Word did not stop. He co-laboured with the Father and Spirit... Continue Reading →

The Causeway

Golden City

A beautiful city stands in a silent lake. A sunrise sends its golden rays into the streets. Across parapets people walk. Walk through unguarded gates. Gates that lead into a city of immense wealth.
