A true Christian path would lead them into the untidy stables of the poor and oppressed, to shovel shit with the Messiah. Instead they remain spiritually shipwrecked, floundering on the shoals of their own ambitions and indifference, slick and ridiculous in their genuflections to greed.
From B Cockburn: Rumours of Glory: on thoughts of Brennan Manning


Over the past seven weeks I have had time to read and reflect while a fractured ankle healed.

I read, listened to music and watched movies and documentaries.

I was challenged  as to how and why I do what i do as i loiter.


I was challenged  as to my  responsibility in the communities i live and move, so now I’m back on my feet, i need to implement the “KISS’ method…….

                                                               KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID!!!!!













ARE YOU RESPECTABLE??

Being respected and  or respectable are values we often demand. It usually comes from a place of power. 
That power is not always associated with money, but often from privilege. 
I get worried when we demand respect, based on our privileged position as followers of Jesus, because I don’t see it being demanded by Jesus, in fact Jesus humbled himself to the place of a slave.
As followers of Jesus we need to humble ourselves, not seek or demand respecting much the same way we ought not seek happiness, or fame too readily.
I’m OK with being considered unrespectable if it means identifying with those who Jesus hung-out with.
I wonder if like pride, respect comes before a fall?????
