The title of this blog, “Just a Thought . . .” means exactly what it says. No great profound revelations (I wouldn’t know one if it sneaked up and bit me on the ankle), but perhaps a few reflections on life and faith. Some of them have been gathered together over a period of a few years as I have scratched my head in the face of things which life or God have placed in my path.
The sub-title, “Joining the conversation” does not, again, suggest that I think that the world desperately needs to hear my point of view on everything (or anything for that matter). It is more of a “note to self”, a post-it on the fridge door reminding me that life consists of more than standing on the sidelines watching the world go by.
All my life I have loved to learn new things, despite the fact that I am no great scholar! Perhaps this little project has a lot to do with my curiosity, my need to learn something new. If that’s all it amounts to then at least it is a harmless pursuit.
Me? I’m a husband, dad and (now retired)Church of England minister. I had a life before ordination and, though I am passionate for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I have other interests, too. My family and a few close friends are extremely precious to me and have greatly encouraged me as we have journeyed along.
If anything in these blogs offers you encouragement or gives you pause for thought, then I am pleased. If not, then thank you for spending a few moments with me.
I have been described, in public, as “a bit of a rebel” but, on my good days at least, I would never seek to deliberately offend. So please accept my apologies if anything you read from me causes you to be angry.
I would welcome your comments on my posts but do, please, try not to shout at me.
