What is the Corona/ Covid-19 Virus Really Teaching us? 

I’m a strong believer that there is a spiritual purpose behind everything that happens, whether that is what we perceive as being good or being bad.


New Year's Message

You can have flaws, be anxious, and even be angry, but do not forget that your life is the greatest enterprise in the world.


Heeding Nature's God...Contemplation on Climate Change and the COVID-19 Audio Message by Dr. Colin Archer

As noted in my paper (recording above), HEEDING NATURE'S GOD, from the very outset I perceived a clear connection between climate change and covid-19. Just now on CNN it is observed that as a direct result of more people and things etc. being shuttered [quarantined so to speak] over the past month, the whole planet has cooled measurably! Nature, and Nature's God seem to be getting the worlds collective attention!

His Story

Rev. Dr. Colin Archer’s ministerial and professional career as a Bahamian Methodist Minister and Psychotheologian has been shaped primarily by his work in many churches in Jamaica, the Bahamas, Caribbean and The United States, and his longtime engagement as a psychotherapist and specialist, mainly in alcoholism treatment, research and rehabilitation.


Approaches and Antidote to Suffering
In my thirty-five-year-old week-day radio program and newspaper column, 'Investing In Being Human', I’ve elected many times to focus this topic, suffering, as, The Mystery And Miracle of Suffering. Material for those works, and some pertinent data used in this paper, are informed by the thinking of Warren W. Wiersbe’s deeply insightful 158-page booklet, 'When Life Falls Apart' [WLFA], and complimented by Pema Chodron’s When Things Fall Apart [Heart Advice for Difficult Times]. To these are added an infusion of devotional and biblical material.  read more....

... Dr. Colin Archer's new book...COMING THIS NOVEMBER!

"Wow Colin! What a life you've lived! Or more appropriately, what a life Jesus has lived in and through you! I commend you for producing such a brave , honest deeply personal and profound spirituality volume. It was through Grace that you, somehow, were able to face moments of pain, challenge, doubt and the messy stuff of humaness. WRAP UP has challenged me to a fresh self-examination of my own convictions and will strengthen the cords of my own faith.

Reverend Lester T. Ferguson

"I was flattered that Colin would ask me to read WRAP UP. To be honest, I thought it was going to be a bunch of Goody-two-shoeness. I could not have been more wrong! WRAP UP is more than a memoir, it's like a self-help manual; it leaves you asking question, not only of yourself, but of the meaning and purpose of life in general. Colin Archer is an enlightened and informed believer in God, Oh that there were more like him! If anyone doubts about yourself, whether you can "make it", I can strongly suggest that you get a copy of WRAP UP."

Greg Lampkin

"The Rev. Dr. Colin Archer and I share a treasured relationship and ancestry as cousins. We are both the fortunate offspring and beneficiaries of two well-known Bahamian families, the Archer's of Abaco and the Bethel's of Eleuthera. It is with a great sense of pride and pleasure to witness Colin's remarkable development and achievements over the years. We admire his sterling character, deep convictions, faith and spirituality, keen intellect, capable yet unassuming manner, graciousness, courage, generosity, friendship, quiet humor and servant leadership qualities. As a family elder, I am particularly blessed to commend for your reading Dr. Colin Archer's facinating memoir, WRAP UP."
