7minutes is divided into three

The 7Minute Blog makes you think. series-blog… Original articles on topics such as growing in our faith, the Bible, New Atheism, and suffering; and community trends like consumerism and impacts of technology. Trying to make sense of big questions, trying to live well as a Christian.

7minute Media is encouraging, thought-provoking but easy viewing Presenting
7minute Audio truth using short stories and anecdotes. You will find stories of Jesus, hope guidance, heaven and hell, and more. Based on recordings made for Christian radio stations or short snips taken from recent sermons.

7minute Stumble is content published elsewhere. Outstanding articles or videos from series-stumbleother websites and Christian blogs. These also talk about faith, culture, relationships, social and technology trends, from a Christian faith perspective. More discipleship, in bite-sized chunks!

7minutes.net is short — discipleship, in bite-sized chunks

The aim of 7minutes is to give you the guest something to think about, something to encourage, maybe amuse, refresh, challenge or inspire, but to do this in a few minutes – bite-sized chunks. Listening times and reading times are always indicated because your time is precious. Everything here is designed to be read or viewed in a few minutes, generally MUCH less than 7 minutes! Only occasional videos taken from recent sermons will occasionally exceed this rule — and only by a few minutes!
