don’t over anlalise

Do we over think stuff.

I’m all for contextualisation, tradition and orthodoxy not so much antinomianism, and I could impress with other big words.

Love you neighbour and your enemies, do good to those who harm you, love one another, seems straight forward to me. Some would argue that if you don’t love neighbour and enemy you can’t claim to love God,  preposterous I hear you say!!!

In a theological lecture some years ago, students suggested the need to believe in  literal 6 day creation, but warned against taking Jesus literally……..really?????

So perhaps then the ‘poor you will always have with you’ really did mean Jesus was not concerned with marginalised, oppressed people???

PS I believe we are called to love all ‘people groups”……..I’m in deep trouble and have some serious work to do in that department, how are you faring????

what you see depends on where you stand

 When Jesus walked the streets of towns and villages, he saw stuff and people which are often easy to miss or ignore.
Maybe it says something about where we stand and what we see??
It never fails to amaze me, that what might appear to us to be the lest, Jesus saw as the most important.


Darkness conjures up negative images.

I’m not sure that darkness is always ‘bad’, with the exception of a headlight failure while riding a motorcycle at night!!!

when you can’t 
look on the bright side,
I will sit with you 
in the dark


Sometimes I think I see You.

Sometimes I think I don’t.

Sometimes I think I’ll hear You.

Sometimes I think I won’t.

Sometimes I feel I trust You.

Sometimes I feel I doubt.

Sometimes I feel I’m into You.

Sometimes I feel I’m out.

I see You in the darkness.

I hear You in the silence.

Thru’ clouds of uncertainty.

In doubts and inquiry.
When the night is misty,

When the day is still,

That’s when I know You –

I believe in You.
Derek Lind – adapted by Dave Andrews.

Sometimes the best map will not guide you 
You can’t see what’s round the bend
Sometimes the road leads through dark places 
Sometimes the darkness is your friend
Today these eyes scan bleached-out land 
For the coming of the outbound stage
Pacing the cage 
Pacing the cage 
But then………
Sometimes you’re made to feel as if your love’s a crime
Nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight
Got to kick at the darkness ’til it bleeds daylight
When you’re lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
Lovers in a dangerous time
We were lovers in a dangerous time
We were lovers in a dangerous time
