I’m delighted to join presenter Samuel Ball on UCB 2 every day this week as his guest.
I was in the studio with Sam, on his show, a few months back and so it’s great to catch up with him this week.
I’ll post clips of each spot here…Or you can tune in to UCB 2 at 18.40 every day this week, by clicking here.

Tuesday – I share my two favourite passages of the bible
Wednesday: I share my 2 year old daughter’s favourite worship song
Thursday: In this slot, I share how God has blessed me in recent days.
Friday: Finally, I share some prayer requests and my all time favourite worship song.
Volunteer Role: Administrative Assistant
As Tom’s work expands, he is increasingly on the road not only for gigs, but meetings, media interviews and other key appointments.
In the time he’s not on the road, he needs to invest in the development and delivery of his events in order to increase and sustain excellence in all that he does.
Therefore we are now looking for an administrative assistant to help in some or all of the following area
– Making initial contact with churches
– Dealing with Toms public facing email. (Gmail) Forwarding to relevant team members and replying on Toms behalf when appropriate
– Arranging meetings with key leaders and event hosts where appropriate with access to Toms diary in iCal.
How much time is needed
The amount of time this role needs will vary from day to day but we would suggest that if it was one person fulfilling the role, they would need to commit around 3-4 hours a week to these tasks.
The emails would need checking daily and sometimes dealt with immediately.
If interested in this voluntary role please email Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Day I Got Stuck In A Mail Bag & Handcuffs
Earlier this week, on Premier Praise, I told the story of the day I got stuck inside a mailbag and handcuffs.
It was at Gorsley Festival, here in Gloucestershire and myself and Steve Legg, were hosting the after hours evening for 300 campers.
They all gathered, with hot chocolates, marshmallows and puffer jackets, prior to spending the night in tents. Being the final night of the festival and my turn to entertain, I decided to do my mailbag and handcuff escape. Continue reading…
I’d value your input on this…
One thing I love about those on my social media & mailing list is the variety of people on it.
Christians, Atheists, Ministers, Business people and performing artists – All from many different towns, cities and villages across the UK!
I’m committed to learning and developing my work so that it’s the best it can be!
The best way of doing that is by bringing together the minds of all these different people and allowing God to shape my thoughts through the input of others.
Would you kindly take just a few minutes to complete this survey?
Is your perspective right?
I heard a great story recently of a young lad who went off to University. Months had passed since he left home and his parents hadn’t heard from him once.
They were starting to worry, get frustrated and upset at his lack of response to texts, emails and calls.
One day his dad was just about to leave for work when an email from his son pops up on his phone. Having almost given up waiting, he was delighted to see his sons name.
Here’s what it read;
Dear mum and dad
Sorry I haven’t been in touch for a while. To be honest the last few months have been crazy.
A few months ago there was a fire in my block of flats and I lost all my possessions.
I managed to escape through a window but in doing so I broke my back and severely damaged my knees. I was in hospital for weeks and suffered a great amount of pain.
Whilst I was there in Hospital, I met a lovely nurse who I fell madly in love with, so much so that last week we got married.
You’re probably not to happy, but I want you to know that everything I’ve written above is a lie.
The truth is…
I have failed all my exams, but I wanted you to understand this in perspective.
Love from your son.
Understanding our lives in perspective, is key to living in the fullness of life that Jesus promises us.
We need to understand the perspective of who God is and who we are.
We need to take a moment and remember that God is above all things and wants us to have ‘life in all it’s fullness’.
That doesn’t mean life is automatically easy, but it requires us to depend on and trust in him.
When we are clueless – God is a God of infinite wisdom.
When we are lacking – God has all that we need
When we are hopeless – God offers a greater hope and purpose
When we are down – God offers a deeper joy
When we are broken – God restores us in the very places that fractures have occurred
Remember who God is. Get your perspective right.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
