Over the course of last week we shared in our Missions Conference.  We climaxed our weekend activities yesterday evening with ADORATION, a festival of worship. This was simply awesome!  We give God thanks for all our singers, musicians, sound, visual, property, hospitality, car parking and all other teams who served to make the evening special. THANKS Swallows!


We invite you to continue worshipping God in song during the week with our Song of the Week,In Jesus' Name



Last Sunday we concluded our Missions Conference by looking at Follow Me and I Will Make You Fishers of Men – Ambassadors of Reconciliation from 2 Corinthians 5:10-6:2. We are facing a crisis in masculinity evidenced by among other things, fatherless homes; abusive behaviours towards women and children; perpetuating and escalating violence and criminality; lack of commitment to monogamous relationships; poor work ethic; high unemployment; poor educational performance and illiteracy.

My doctoral research investigated the factors contributing to distorted male identity and dysfunctional behaviours among inner city males giving particular focus on our community of Swallowfield. In so doing the construction of black masculinity was reviewed in Africa, North America, the Caribbean and particularly in Jamaica, and revealed the following similarities: 1) Man Must Rule and Dominate “tings” or in other words black male identity is rooted in hegemonic masculinity in which there is quest for economic power, male privileging, and domination of women, which may include violence.

I have been harping about us slowing down over the Christmas season and not becoming embroiled in the usual frenetic busyness of the season. I return to this theme as I close with the thought that to live regularly observing one day in seven for ceasing work, rest, delight and contemplation is not a God suggestion but are his instructions for living.

I am challenged to live obedient to that command. Let’s ‘work’ at doing this.

Let’s be prayerful for our families, nation and troubled world.

In Christ’s love,
