Today @ Healingsprings fellowship

Our Operative Narratives (ON) can be simply defined as scripts, rule book, philosophy, stories or narratives; we use to navigate our lives through the complexities of this world.

There are good and bad scripts. Good scripts enhance our personal effectiveness, while bad scripts hinders it. Perhaps most importantly, bad scripts are often replayed in times of change or difficulty.

Scripts can also be divided into two levels, namely: meta scripts and personal scripts. Meta-scripts are the overarching stories of how the world operates, and personal scripts are our understanding of how the world operates.

Daniel Taylor puts it this way:

“You are your stories. You are the product of all the stories you have heard and lived – and many that you have never heard. They have shaped how you see yourself, the world, and your place in it…

Our stories teach us that there is a place for us, that we fit… the more conscious we are about our stories, and our roles as characters in them, the more clarity we have about who we are, and why we are here, and how we should act in the world.”

– Tell Me a Story: The Life Shaping Power of Our Stories

To this end Jesus urged his audience to Repent with a view to identify these scripts – especially bad ones, and begin the process of personal transformation.

Join us for Operating Narratives as part of my end of year reflections.

Living On Purpose

LIVING ON PURPOSE: Rightly Diving the Word of Truth (2 Tim 2:15)
In 1744, Alexander Webster and Robert Wallace (both Presbyterian Clergymen in Scotland), decided to set up a life-insurance fund for the widows and orphans of dead clergymen. 

So they proposed that each church minister contribute a portion of their income into an investment fund, and if a minister died, his widow would receive dividends from the funds, thereby allowing her to live comfortably for the rest of her life.

But in order to determine how much can be paid-in to keep their obligations, these men had to be able to provide answers to the following questions:

  • how many ministers are likely to die each year?
  • how many widows and orphans are these ministers likely to leave behind?

  • and by how many years are the widows likely to outlive their husbands?


First, let us see what they did not do. They did not:

● hold prayer meetings, perhaps to ‘bind the demon of death’

● hold theological debates on poverty 

● embark on a research on the work of ancient theologians


  1. They contacted Colin Maclaurin (Professor of mathematics, University of Edinburgh)
  • They collected data on ages at which people died and used it to calculate how many ministers are likely to pass away in any given year

  • They applied recent breakthrough in statistics

  • Using mathematical modelling, they realised that:

    • on average there were 930 living Scots clergymen at any given moment
  • 27 ministers are likely to die each year,

  • 18 of them would be survived by a widow,

  • 5 of them who had no widow – would leave orphaned children,

  • 2 of those survived by widows would be outlived by children from previous marriages who had not yet reached the age of 16

  • And most importantly, how much time a widow is likely to draw dividends before passing away or remarrying.

    Dear friends, these were the early days of the investment instrument known today as SCOTTISH WIDOWS.

    Biblical reflection:
    – 1 Samuel 13:19-22

    To a blessed week!

    This Sunday @ Healingsprings fellowship!

    Built To Last.

    In a world obsessed with Pop Culture and excesses, the term success conjures a whole new meaning. 

    Jesus faced the same challenges in his era. For instance, when the elites ridiculed his perspective on financial stewardship his answer was, 

    ‘for what is prized by human beings is an abomination in the sight of God.’ (Luke 16:15b).

    In the same vein the preacher drew a sound conclusion to his thoughts with these words: 

    ‘Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man’s all.’ (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

    Therefore our love for God and humanity makes wealth a force for good. 

    To this end tomorrow’s lecture is entitled: Built to Last.

    During the course of my talk I will explore 5 Pillars of Success, and 5 mind sets that can drown our dreams.

    This Sunday’s lecture | Call of Duty: we build together

    In the 31st chapter of the book of Exodus, we are introduced to a God that: calls, equips, and linkup people with unique talents and skills; towards a common purpose. 

    This pattern provides us with a blueprint which can be used in the fulfilment God’s purpose. One that provides leaders and disciples with: wisdom, knowledge and understanding for everyday life and the work of the ministry. 

    So join us tonight: (6:00-7:30) pm

    Art Centre, Drama Room, Bexleyheath Academy, Woolwich Rd, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 7DA

    The Words of Our Elders: C S Lewis (1898–1963)

    The man who is contented to be only himself, and therefore less a self, is in prison. My own eyes are not enough for me, I will see through those of others. Reality, even seen through the eyes of many, is not enough. I will see what others have invented …. in reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. Like the night sky in the Greek poem, I see with a myriad eyes, but it is still I who see. Here, as in worship, in love, in moral action, and in knowing, I transcend myself; and am never more myself than when I do.

    ~ C S Lewis

    The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.

    The Words of Our Elders: Charles Spurgeon (1834-1892)

    Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. ~ Charles Spurgeon

    The words of our elders, are words of wisdom.
