Vegetable Pancakes: Carrot, Corn, & Zucchini
We discovered this dish years ago and have not looked back. It is so popular that people are helping themselves to the pancakes fresh from the fry-pan before they even makes it to the dining table. A good way of getting your vegetables for the day!

1.Stir milk, yoghurt, cheese, butter & eggs together in a large jug. 2.Place flour in a bowl with a well in the middle.

Add it, plus the carrot, corn, parsley and parmesan cheese, to the flour/milk mixture. Stir until combined (don’t over stir). Salt and pepper to taste. 4.

DIVISION & DECLINE: WHY STUDY II KINGS

Now all theses things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come I Corinthians 10:11 (NKJV)
It is not a happy story and there is plenty of heartbreak, yet the Book of II Kings is an important part of God’s Word. For in it, we learn the legacy and the lunacy of turning away from the LORD: division, decline, decadence, depravity, and dispersion. II Kings was written is for our benefit, so that we learn from the successes and failures of the people of God.
II Kings is the narrative of the Israelite nation divided into two competing kingdoms: Judah in the south and Israel in the north. Neither of them were faithful to the LORD and the result of such unfaithfulness is the challenge of invasion, conquest, and exile. Yet in the midst of the backsliding and inevitable judgment, there is the scarlet cord of redemption. Though Judah was chastened and exiled, by God’s grace, it returned from exile. Those who returned became kn…

7 PILLARS TO UNDERSTANDING THE FUTURE: PILLAR 3 -We Have Power Over the Enemy

And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do — I Chronicles 12:32
One of the wisest and noblest goals you can have in life is to help yourself, your family, and others to become ‘future-ready.’ Teachers, financial planners, pastors, and parents all have a role to play in this.
The resources are out there but sadly many are simply not ready; indeed, they are in danger of ‘sleepwalking into the future.’ The risk of falling into the ditch becomes all the greater. With so many challenges in our world today, being ‘future-ready’ becomes a necessity, not a luxury, in order to survive and succeed in the days ahead.
So far, we have learned two pillars to understanding the future. Number One is to understand that Bible prophecy is the key. If there is anything to has been given by God to help us be future-ready, this it it. Bible prophecy is God’s early warning service. Number Two tells us to understand that we live in a spi…

500 Years Ago - The Protestant Reformation 31 October 1517
Yes, the Reformation will be half a millennium old as of 31 October 2017. The Reformation was when a group of reformers broke from the Pope, the Vatican, and Roman Catholicism. It cut across centuries of tradition and papal control in order to return the church to a more Biblical foundation.
The date October 31st was chosen as ‘Reformation Day’ because it was when Martin Luther (1483-1546) nailed his 95 Theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. It was a big gamble - his life was at stake - but Luther survived and succeeded.
Luther was not the only reformer. John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, and John Knox also played a major role in the break from Rome. The reformers objected to the following Catholic doctrines:
