Can People Really Change?

One of our readers responded to one of our articles and commented on the need to catch our youth early in order to train them in positive behavioural dynamics.

The Gain Of Pain

It is the middle of the night. I have been sleeping restlessly after taking a hard fall earlier in the day in our church parking ground. I tripped coming off the pavement, and this ‘Old Man’ felt as if I was literally running into a brick wall. For a minute or so I was in […]

Respectfulness

The other day I was impressed with the following thought: ‘It is not so much differences in opinion that is hurting our country, but differences in respectfulness.’’ For some time now I have been intending to write something about the universal value of respectfulness and this is now probably a good time to do so.

Finding That Little Bit Extra

I have noticed a difference between the really iconic sport athletes and the rest. Wayde van Niekerk runs the 400m race and what happens towards the end?
