Isolation

4th April 2020 Many people feel great distress because they are “isolated”, “quarantined” and “stuck at home”. During this COVID-19 crisis, when many are dying, the biggest inconvenience to some unconverted men and women, sad to say, is that their weekend partying has been restricted. They are “suffering” because Netflix doesn’t have enough binge-worthy programs to watch. They are b-o-r-e-d because football season is in jeopardy. “Internet influencers” (modern man really is mad, isn’t he?) lament that their influence is…

Bicester During Lockdown – April 2020

These are unprecedented times. Our world has seen epidemics before, but never a “global lock down”, with the skies emptied of planes and billions told to stay at home until further notice. Locally here in Bicester the normally busy Spring time is eerily quiet. Most shops are closed. Hardly any traffic on the roads. Sadly, for the first time in 55 years, Hebron Gospel Hall is temporarily closed. But you can still reach out to us through this website, or…

Worry

1st April 2020 I know I am not supposed to worry, that it accomplishes nothing. But here’s the thing about worry – it seems so pointless in other people…until it hits us! We know all the promises; we try to “rest in the Lord”; we try to “wait patiently for Him”; we try to “fret not” and to “fear not.” “We’re too blessed to be stressed” is a great saying – until the stress comes. Sometimes waves of worry can…

Recommended Reading List

With the UK and much of the rest of the world in total lock down, many people find themselves with some precious spare time on their hands. Time to engage in the lost art of reading! If you are wondering where to start, here is a list of highly recommended books, kindly submitted by Eugene Higgins (New Jersey, USA), who has often preached at HGH over the years and is a widely read Bible teacher: BIOGRAPHIES George Müller of Bristol:…

Fear, Frailty and Faith in a COVID-19 World

Fear, Frailty and Faith in a COVID-19 World 21st Mar 2020 The busy jovial self-employed painter I met yesterday in the decorating supplies shop was having none of it. “I won’t be getting the virus. I’m immune to everything. I’m even immune to work!” I smiled at his dark British humour, inwardly wondering if he was really more worried than he was letting on. The Romanian cleaner I met earlier in the day was, I think, more honest. “We are…

Climate Change, Covid-19 and Mounting Global Debt…Where Will It All End?

In the series of presentations below, experienced Bible teacher and evangelist Eugene Higgins (New Jersey, USA) explains what the Bible has predicted will happen from now till the end of time. Because the Bible is God’s Word, it has a 100% track record on predicting the future. These accurate Biblical presentations about the Bible’s…

Spurgeon on the Cholera Outbreak of 1854 and 1866

The Victorian era preacher Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834-1892) began preaching in London in April 1854. Later that year our capital city suffered an outbreak of cholera in which 600 people died, with a mortality rate of over 12% in parts of the city. Another outbreak in 1866 claimed a further 5,596 lives. Spurgeon visited many of the sick and dying and spoke at multiple funerals. He often addressed the issue of the outbreaks in his sermons. The following selected quotes…

A Biblical Perspective on COVID-19

Dr. A. J. Higgins M.D. (New Jersey, USA) draws key lessons to be learned from the Covid-19 outbreak: It is inherent in human nature to always search for a “meaning” to everything. To feel a victim of random, meaningless events, to be a cork bobbing in the sea of life’s uncontrollable events, is to be reduced to a sense of futility and near despair. While I would not profess to find meaning in the events which are occurring over COVID-19,…
Cali, Columbia, South America

Where Are We?

On December 20th 1995, an American Airlines Boeing 757 took a regular scheduled flight (AA965) from Miami, Florida, to Cali, Columbia (photo above), carrying passengers mainly returning for the Christmas holidays. Captain Nicholas Tafuri, age 57, and First Officer Don Williams, age 39, were highly experienced and skilled pilots, but through a tragic navigational mix up they erroneously put the aircraft on a collision course with the 3,000-metre El Diluvio mountain 38 miles north of Cali, instead of the Cali…
