My name is Chris Thomas. I’m a fortunate husband, a father of three and Dad to five. I’m an advocate of foster care as an expression of the gospel. I’m a pastor at Raymond Terrace Community Church, a regional church based in the Hunter Valley, Australia. I mostly write about the gospel and how it informs both work and rest.

A couple of links for your weekend reading:

Rory Shiner: What happens after the last Christian?

If, some years from now, the last Christian in Australia is buried by children who no longer share their parent’s faith, what will that moment mean? Will it matter if Australia loses God – the God of Christian faith?

Murray Lean: The Joys (and challenges) of Rural Ministry

So why is it that churches in the country seem to have so much more difficulty finding pastors than their city cousins? Could it be that a growing number of trained gospel workers today are actively resisting the possibility that God might be leading them to serve in the country? And if so, why is this the case?
