Stock photo stock

The site I mentioned in my previous post is a photo stock site with loads of free professional pictures, photos et cetera. The URL: Thanks to Mirjam from HQ School for the link. Also a little promotion for their theater tour coming up in June: (guess where the background image comes from…).


The traditional Easter weekend ‘Opwekking’ (Revival) conference will also be held this year. Since a couple of years one of the youth programs is called ‘HQ Event’, run by the HQ department of Agapè. The philosophy of HQ is in their name: Heavenly Quality! No wonder the scheduled program is both in content and in […]


I’ll take my responsibility in linking to (Dutch readers only). I think this initiative needs to be supported, it can’t be that such a commonly used tool remains unnamed 🙂 And by the way, on the site Wikipedia is mentioned – another link worth a visit. Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia that is maintained […]


Our new neighbours from across the street paid us a visit last night. Samuel and Alice van der Maas are the pastors of the largest evangelical church in Almere, the CAMA Parousia. I think I have to screen my Church Quest posts on Parousia (here and here) 🙂

Manager for God (2)

Since January he is again part of the leadership of Agape Netherlands, but he is also Director of Agape Belgium, interim leader in Germany and leader/coach for the Baltics… heavy! We need him right now, but he will return to Europe as soon as […]

Manager for God

Agapè leader Hans Pruis gave me a unpublished book he wrote last year, called ‘Een boekje open’, which translates something like ‘A story unrevealed’. It is kind of his memoires, in which he writes down thoughts and reflections he finds hard to express otherwise. It is fun to read and very accessible. I started when […]

He is a Christian philosopher with a wide range of interest, who gives lectures on subjects like ‘The secret of a successfull compliment’ and at the same time taking his PhD on ‘Dignity, Truth and the Want to Be’.

The Wedding

Yes, my sister Ingeborg got married last Friday! It was a great party, from the beginning to the end. We were home at 2.30 in the morning – that’s always a good indicator 🙂 She looked gorgeous, and her man Joan too. The story is that they met not even 10 months ago during holiday […]
