Aloha and Welcome to Stoke!

Why check out this site?

All human beings have deep and longing questions.

–       Does God exist?

–       Why is there suffering?

–       Is happiness possible?

–       What is the meaning of life?

We explore the answers given by the person we date all history around: Jesus Christ.


“Perhaps you already think like a Christian!”

“Nah, you’ve gotta be kidding.”

If you’re like me, you don’t believe polygamy is a good thing. I’m sure you agree that a man should have just one wife and not half a dozen. Now where did you get this radical idea from? I say radical, because when Jesus taught this it was not how the dominant world cultures thought.


See, you are more Christian that you realise!


Pray and begin the search today because life’s better as a Catholic in boardshorts.
