on 7th November 2016

If you’re like most people, you’re probably not overly concerned about online security. Maybe because your various email, social media and other frequently-visited sites haven’t (yet) been compromised, you think it won’t happen, or perhaps it has and it was little more than an inconvenience.

When I first heard Karl Martin preach, I was sitting in a cold marquee at CLAN Gathering.  He didn’t mince his words then and he hasn’t started to now.  By his own admission his new book, Stand, is a provocation to encounter the risen Jesus and have him transform your life.
