Does the Church adequately support members for their daily work life? My most recently published research discusses this question and shares some statistical data gained from the broadest and most recent empirical research on faith and work in South Africa

Our conference starts at 5pm this evening so Megie and I went for a run and a swim this morning before having tea! I think this is the first time in about three years that we've had so much 'down time' together. It is such a blessing!

I would love one of these. They are a littlr pricey! Perhaps I will check them out when I am in the UK in May.
 
New kit from Brompton. The Brompton Oratory Jacket. From the press release
"The design team behind the iconic, award-winning Brompton bicycle has today unveiled the Brompton Oratory Jacket – an innovation in cycling apparel that can be worn throughout the day straight from bike, to boardroom, to bar." Also see a blog from Evans Cycle who attended the event. http://blog.evanscycles.com/commuter_urban/brompton-oratory-jacket-launch/

A beautiful resort with wonderful grounds and facilities. Wifi throughout the complex, a great gym and very helpful staff. I wish I had a chance to bring my family here for a holiday. They would love it. I was here for the ABLI Forum.

I just installed a new battery in my mid 2011 MacBook Air! Wohoo! I got it from iFixit - I'm looking forward to the new lease on life with my little MacBook! With all the flying that I do having a 5-7 hour battery life is going to be super useful!

This is a great station! I love arriving in Nijmegen over the River Vaal and seeing the city. There is a Starbucks and Albert Hijn on the station platform. The bus service from the station to Radboud University is awesome (take the number 10 Stadsbus to Erasmusgebou). Happy memories!

I attended the #2014ISTR conference and presented a paper at the Torhaus building. The facilities of the University are magnificent. Like my University (Stellenbosch University in Cape Town, South Africa), the University is spread across the city in various buildings. Pop into the Schlosshaus and get a map for free and you're set to go!

If you are a keen cyclist and love bicycles you must visit the Velorama museum. They have an amazing collection of historic and rare bicycles that are well presented and beautifully maintained. I try to visit each year when I am in Nijmegen.

I love flying to Lanseria. It is a completely different experience from OR Tambo. Flights are mostly on time, staff are friendly and the airport is less congested on the whole. For the cost of a return trip from OR Tambo to Sandton I can rent a small car for the day and drive to my meetings and be independent.

A great hotel right in the centre of Münster. Starbucks across the road, in walking distances from WWU (Münster University), the parks, the Promenade. It is a modern hotel that is well maintained and fairly affordable. I would certainly stay here again. The only little problem was that the wifi was very unreliable. I had to use Starbucks to Skype and FaceTime home.

This is the largest provider of Theological training in the Southern Hemisphere! Great courses, super friendly staff, and good theology. It is an honour to serve on their board.
