Prayer changes lives (triple helix - winter 2006)

Son of a South African pastor, Richard Johanson was born in South Africa. His mother's obstetrician was Paul Bremer, an old friend of CMF, so much prayer must have surrounded him from the start. We met in 1984 when Richard joined our hospital team as a junior doctor, by now...

The prayer life of a doctor (triple helix - autumn 2005)

Doctors are not alone in leading busy lives. Jesus was busy but still took time to draw close to the Father in prayer, responsive to his word.We must do the same. Prayer has been described as the breath of the soul .We breathe in (are inspired) by the Spirit, God’s pneuma...

Bow down and worship or stand up and sing? (triple helix - summer 2005)

'Words mean what I want them to mean,' says Humpty Dumpty in Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. He is not alone. Today's teenagers, for example, use 'cool, 'random' and 'wicked' in ways puzzling to their elders. Christians, too, can alter a good word's meaning. Our Lord Jesus came amongst us...

Relax in-to disaster …and see what God will do (triple helix - spring 2004)

Recently I undertook a round trip of several hundred miles to renew various neglected but inspiring friendships. I found a friend’s motto ‘relax in-to disaster’ an enormous source of illumination as I travelled and talked. My friend had had to give up nursing after an adverse reaction to a yellow fever...

When prayer seems unanswered (triple helix - Summer 2003)

There's no heavenly insurance policy exempting people from life's realities, writes Janet Goodall. But that's not the end of the story. In Disappointment with God, Philip Yancey reflects on those whose faith in God is seriously shaken by seemingly unanswered prayer.[1] Although earnestly asked to intervene, the Almighty still allows devastating...
