Welcome to my new blog! Over the next few days, months and years I hope to blog on a wide range of eclectic subjects of interest to a broad Christian audience. There will be reflections, musings, comments on contemporary news stories…….there may even be snippets from some of my sermons along the way!
My aim is to create a space where the ideas running through my mind can be aired, discussed and modified in the light of wise counsel and constructive criticism. As that wonderful and insightful Christian Mystic, Meister Eckhart, once wrote:
Human beings ought to communicate
all the gifts they have received from God.
If a person has something that
he or she does not share with others,
that person is not good.
A person who does not bestow on others
and the joy that is in them
has in fact never been spiritual.
People are not to receive
and keep gifts for themselves alone,
but should share themselves
and pour forth everything they possess whether in their bodies
or their souls
as much as possible.
