Expanding our Knowledge of Life-And-Matter and understanding how this knowledge, together with our modern Abundant Lifestyles have impacted Christianity.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained; what is man, that you think of him? What is the son of man, that you care for him?
Psalm 8 : 3-4 NLT

Our Knowledge of Life-And-Matter is expanding so
rapidly that the inherited fundamental perceptions of our Christian Faith and Spirituality need constant review and transformation to maintain their relevance and influence on Life Sciences and developments in today's quantum world.
Social and Technological Change. Our societies have undergone such mind-boggling social and technological changes over the last two centuries, that the very foundations of our inherited concepts, both spiritual and social, have been shaken to the core. In fact, as so many convictions that in the past have served as landmarks are eroding away, it is no wonder that many of us feel lost and seem to be casting about in search of a new compass!
Regarding concepts of Life-And-Matter, such as The-Origin-Of-Matter and The-Origin-Of-Life, never before has mankind had such free and easy access to seemingly boundless resources of information as we have increasingly become accustomed to. Unfortunately though, this information-overload has had devastating effects on both religion and the fabric of society as a whole.
Inherited Paradigms being sidelined. Our inherited cultural traditions that were based on Faith and Trust - especially in the West - are being sidelined and increasingly replaced by Agnostic Skepticism. This is increasingly due to affluent living, uninformed individual opinions pertaining to life-and-matter and, sadly, a decline in the inherent compassion and understanding traditionally so characteristic to our faith. We are all the poorer for this.
However, the truth is that these same boundless resources of knowledge, technology, and infrastructure that have so overwhelmed us and have been partly responsible for many of our problems, in fact also present us with unimaginable opportunities.
Step out in faith. Are you like me? I have been a believing Christian for most of my life, but one who largely remained just a passenger - securely closeted aboard the "boat of faith" afforded by the Christian Church while the storm is raging outside? I have since been lead to decide that it is time to stand up, climb over the side, and follow the apostle Peter's example of stepping out in faith to serve the Lord.
Won't you join me in attempting, however inadequate and clumsily, to do our bit for the kingdom Christ? We are aware of the decline of traditional Christendom and hopefully are concerned, but probably feel too inadequate and insignificant to do anything about it.
Well, there is an African saying:"If you think being tiny is insignificant, try and spend a night in a hut with a mosquito!"
Could we, as believers, pro-actively shoulder our responsibilities in respect of our Stewardship of the Church of Christ by staying informed as to the newest knowledge regarding life-and-matter? Let us help each other understand and weigh the implications, and then help formulate insights into how new truths that are being learned could be incorporated into an enhanced understanding of the Magnitude and Glory of our God!
As stated in our Mission-Statement, it is our dream that this website will develop into a vibrant, insightful, but also an enjoyable platform, providing a forum where we can communicate and encourage each other while finding opportunities to carry out Christ's commission.
An Oasis Watering Hole. Rather like a watering hole on an old caravan route! Where we can stop for a while, change our stories, replenish our supplies, make new acquaintances, help each other and, refreshed, resume our individual travels.
We all have our own talents with which we can serve. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could establish an inter-denominational, worldwide, network of believers that become involved not only individually, but also through their own organizations? Forming a forum for exchanging experiences, identifying opportunities and utilizing available resources. Where we can share success stories, organize projects and seminars, all the while inspiring and encouraging each other.
In other words, transforming our knowledge of life-and-matter into building lives-that-matter!
