The story of the man Thomas, a follower of Jesus who found it really hard to believe what was happening! A lot like the rest of us when we’re told just how much God loves us!

Some people think it was such a shame what happened to that nice man Stephen – but if you listen to the story you won’t think like that any more as you hear how God remained in control and how He loved and used His servant Stephen to do exactly what He planned. And, that Stephen’s life was all it should have been because God is so good.

This is the story of how God broke Peter and the other apostles understanding of who the Good News was for and who He wanted to belong to His Church. Powerful stuff!

NB – Shout out to the late Rev. John Stott for the idea.

This is a Sycamore tree on the site of ancient Ashkalon. This Israeli species of Sycamore is different from the tree that goes by the same name in North America and some other places. It is, however, the same variety climbed by Zacchaeus in the Gospel of Luke 19:4.

Samson And The City Of Death

Photo from Flickr.com by pcstratman – Samson steals the gates – Bible drawing by Otto Semler

Here is a link to another story about Samson once again broadcast on UCB Inspirational (28th Feb 2015). However, while the last story looked at all the promise that never really found fulfilment in the life of Samson, this story looks at what we can learn about Jesus when we try and understand a short and rather odd story in the life of this man – who was after all a special gift from God to the people of Israel!

In this story there are great riches to be found about all that Jesus would do for us many years after the life and death of Samson so that we can see that in some ways and at some points Samson’s life was a prophetic life pointing forward to the ‘Real Saviour’ who was still to come.

Glowing Streaky Text in After Effects & Fusion

Here is a link to a couple of tutorials I put up on YouTube that show how to do a similar thing in both After Effects and Fusion. If you don’t know, Blackmagicdesign.com have made Fusion FREE up to 2k output and it is an amazing compositor and worth looking into. So, just to get people started, I have done this project to show the workflow in AE and in Fusion. Hope you enjoy it.
