Fitting In And Standing Out

Author:  Bill Colyer | Jan 5th, 2013

The soundtrack for heroism?

Heroism is hard work without a good soundtrack. You see it in the difference between who we love to watch and who we love to be.

Sitting in the cinema, we cheer for the person who stands up against injustice and we imagine ourselves bravely making the same stand. However, when we’re actually faced with the chance to stand up for something, to stand out from the crowd, we often shrink back.

Without a stirring soundtrack, our dreams of standing out fade away. We prefer the comfort and security of fitting in with those around us.

Rosey Huf looks at why Christians should stand out against a culture of piracy and provides some alternative legal and economical ways to access what we want and need.

Being content & generous

I find it really difficult to be content. There is always something else that I need or want to buy. I often find myself thinking, “If only I had ... then life would be easier” or “I would be happier if ...” But would I? What more can I get that would truly satisfy?Being content & generous
