500 years ago, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to a door in Wittenburg and the Refomation was set into motion. In a world where salvation could be bought and people were kept in the dark, the Reformers spoke a message of salvation by faith not works. They shone a light on the truth of the gospel – that Jesus’ death on the cross is enough to save us, and this is for anyone who believes.

You might have worked out from this blog that food is a big part of my life. I like to eat well and I try to eat healthy. I like my dining experiences to be organised and straight-forward. So, quite soon after I moved out of home (about 6 years ago now), I discovered that meal planning really works for me. Where I sit down at the beginning of the week, and plan what meals I’m going to cook on each day. I also then write my shopping list based on what I’ll need for those recipes.

Have you ever finished eating a meal and realised you’re still hungry? The portion wasn’t enough. Or have you ever tried to meet a deadline but didn’t quite make it? There just wasn’t enough time. Finding out that things aren’t enough can be disappointing. The world’s voice can also tell us that we are not enough. And it’s easy to listen to this voice. I compare myself to other people or to the ideal that’s grown in my mind over time and suddenly I’m feeling insecure.

This month’s cuisine night was another Asian one – Chinese food. My cousin’s wife was born in China, so there’s a very slight family connection there. Looking up Chinese recipes on Pinterest came up with so many delicious options, the hard bit was narrowing it down!
