An angling session to start the day, the sermon inspired by a guestbook post, blogging and comments

The last comment on my guestbook was from an anonymous poster who shared something from Romans 11.

I liked how the person described the verse in question, which was pretty much saying that if you get the roots right then the branches will take care of themselves.

I liked it so much, that was my sermon for today.

Get the foundation of our life right and what comes after will take care of itself.

Of course, it’s a scriptural theme anyway so it wasn’t a revelation, just that it was also an opportunity to mention my blog as part of the illustration.


  1. I didn’t realize you’d been blogging so long, Stewart. That’s amazing. I enjoy reading your posts even though I’m no fishermen. I like how you weave in the Lord and what you learn about Him within your fishing tales. I pray you continue for a good while to come.

    1. Thanks, very much appreciated.
      It’s definitely what they call a labour of love, without doubt.
      My faith is very important to me and who I am, and especially here in the UK where Christianity is very much on the sidelines for most people, it’s an opportunity to try and portray faith in a positive light.
      Every blessing.
