I discovered, late in life, a passion for writing, whether formal or creative, responding to an issue or a cry from the heart. I have been discovering how to employ that passion here these last few years, and have greatly enjoyed the friendships formed here.
Here I am “wondering” about various topics of interest mostly to Christians. I’m not a fulltime preacher, but it is an important focus of my life, and my interactions within the “community of saints” (sinners all) is what guides much of my thinking and “wondering”.
There are many folk who have passed through, some who have stayed to chat, while others, I hope have been touched and moved on. I’d love to have your comment, and engage with you–do leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments. If anything is useful for you, please feel free to use it in any way you like–but please acknowledge and let me know about it. If you use it on the web or share it in an email, please put a link back to this page. This is about sharing, getting to know each other, and testing one’s ideas.
The Stories I have written here have been used as a sermon somewhere, and are best read out loud. The prayers and meditations may have emerged during a retreat or simply “out of the blue”. Some were in response to a set theme, others, like Pippin, just arrived, demanding to be written.
The Elephant at the top of the page crossed in front of us when we were driving through Kruger National Park. We have a powerful message; if we can be half as bold in declaring it as an elephant is, we will be doing well.
