Stones, Not Bricks

Morning Thought: Stone walls are different than brick walls. Bricks usually are all the same. Stones, however, are all different shapes, sizes and colours. Instead of bricks, God chooses to build with stones, “living stones” to be exact. Through Christ you are his “living stones,” different from your brothers and sisters, but chosen to be together. The man-made church is constructed through bricks of conformity, the Spirit-made church is built through stones of diversity. “You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ” (‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2:5‬, NIV‬‬).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
