Diagnosed with cancer, this Christian got through it by praying and painting Jesus’ last day on earth

  Derek Culley’s ‘Golgotha’ at RUA-RED, Dublin with Irish harpist Cormac DeBarra I had my first heart attack in 2005 and my second in 2006. While in hospital the second time, I promised myself I would paint my version of the Stations of the Cross. So I got hold of a 30 foot by 59 inches single piece of canvas. Half way through painting this, which I titled ‘Golgotha’, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. It was when having a routine blood clot reading in the hospital that I chanced on a poster about prostate cancer; and thought, I have some of those symptoms. I had a simple PSA test and cancer was identified. So, if I did not have the heart attack I would possibly have missed identifying the prostate cancer. I was 54. The strange part was, I felt no anger. No ‘why me’. I felt blessed that my cancer was caught early and finished painting...Read more

Honoring Christ’s sacrifice: These three words will change your life forever

Honoring Christ’s sacrifice: These three words will change your life forever

Aaron Burden/Unsplash John 19:30 (KJV) “It is finished.” Matthew 28:6 (KJV) “He has risen.” I want to take a moment and use this Christ’s Corner to truly honor the sacrifice Jesus Christ did for us. This time of season is when believers celebrate the death, burial, and resurrection of our Saviour. I chose these two verses because to me, these three little words speak volumes. Have you ever stopped to think about what all Jesus went through? I know that growing up we are taught that Jesus died, was buried, and arose again on the third day but then that is simply followed with a dismissal prayer and off families go to rush home and have their dinners, egg hunts, and other various traditions that were brought in over time. For some, its hugging after the dismissal prayer and going into the fellowship hall to have breakfast after Sunrise Service. Now,...Read more

‘He Lived To Save Others’: The Legacy Of Dawson Trotman And The Navigators

Sign outside of The Navigators Glen Eyrie castle and conference centre in Colorado Springs.David Shankbone/ Wikimedia Commons Today marks the anniversary of the founding of The Navigators, now a discipleship charity known for its student ministry – but originally begun as a mission to sailors by a man named Dawson Trotman. Who was he, and why does he matter? Dawson Trotman, known to friends as ‘Daws’ became a Christian at 18, and was soon inspired to share the good news he had learned with others. On March 3, 1933 Trotman began The Navigators, through which he and his friends reached out to sailors in the US military. Trotman was inspired by the principle of sharing life 1-1 with another, and through this relational model, sharing the gospel with many. He taught a sailor called Les Spencer about Jesus, spending many hours studying the Bible, praying, and memorising...Read more
