More Inspiring Words


New additions to my website – a labour of love; a work in progress – just like our own selves!

I’m posting new worship on a weekly basis. If you’ve not visited fro a while, then you are in for a Kingdom treat!

My long-term friend, Kent Henry is one of the forerunners of contemporary praise and worship and he’s still going strong in St. Louis. Hours of live recorded worship here, and over the next few days, hours more on the way!

Ken Henry Live Worship


For something completely different, I’ve just made a new page and gone live with it last night: The Life & Words of Madam Guyon


PLUS: a new (and controversial!) post from our guest blogger, the Rev. Dr. William DeArteaga HERE.


The enigmatic Zaine Bible Atlas remains a popular search item on the site, so I’ve made it easier to find on the top menu. Speaking of menus, I’ve been trying out a couple of beta-test menus. To browse all the site content, however, I suggest keep using the top header menu.

Visit us on our constantly updated website now! God bless you in the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ! – John & Gladdys Ruffle.

Author: John E Ruffle

As a redeemed, recycled 1970s Californian Jesus Freak, John has faced too many extreme situations and sticky wickets through the years to mention here. Returning to his native England, John was actively involved in mission and outreach and taught English in a Further Education college in London until retiring in 2017. After a ten-year journey into a deeper appreciation of the historic Christianity, in 2013 John was received into the Catholic Church where he now serves in a lay capacity. Yet foundational to his faith has always been his experiences living in Gospel Outreach - an orthodox evangelical Christian commune in the USA. He is still in touch with many of his original “Jesus Freak” generation buddies. John serves as co-leader of a local Catholic Charismatic prayer group and writes to instruct and inspire. Prior to Pope Francis' election in March 2013, John accurately predicted in his personal journal that the new pope would choose either the name John or Francis. Currently, John is engaged in researching the 1967-1977 American 'Jesus People Movement' that saw tens of thousands of hippies coming to Christian discipleship through communes, coffee houses, and street outreach. He has been revitalising his ministry website at throughout 2019 and is writing a devotional. John and his Filipino wife Gladdys have one boy, several stray cats that appear and disappear at will, and a growing extended family both in the UK and abroad. They make their home in Birmingham, England where they love to praise and worship Jesus. Still young at heart, John is passionate about engaging young adults in the faith, particularly though relational small groups.
