The Vine and the Trellis

Morning Thought: A vine has no strength on its own. It needs a trellis or similar structure to grow. The latticed wood of a trellis allows the vine to intertwine with its framework. Without this support, the vine would lie on the ground, unable to bear much fruit. Hope is like binding yourself to the trellis, who is God. God’s hope lifts you up. He is your strength and song. “We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield” (Psalms‬ ‭33‬:‭20‬, ‭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).
