There are more female pastors…but.

  I came across an article today that sounded very encouraging. Female pastors are on the rise, I skimmed to the section where this was mentioned just to be sure that I had not read wrongly. I hadn't. There are more females as pastors than ever before today. This...

“Pre-evangelism” in a Secular Age

I've been regularly meeting up recently with a group of people who are not Christian to talk about spiritual things. In our meetings the point is not to talk about Christianity, though people can if they want to, but rather to explore a more generic expression of...

The prophetic task of the church

What is the role of the church today? By the church I mean a people that have freely chosen to follow Jesus, in our world. What would the world reimagined look like if it displayed the beauty, salvation, love, justice, truth and mercy that we see Jesus embodying in...

Imitating God’s Work Ethic

  I seem to be learning the same lesson repeatedly these days. My tendency is to plan, strategize and set in place processes that will achieve my goals. That’s the way I’m wired and like all personal characteristics this has its strengths and weaknesses. But I...

Homosexuality and the Church: Two Views and Some Thoughts.

  As I sit here in my local inner-city library writing this blog I am very aware of the people around me. I surreptitiously hold the book that I am reviewing and hope that no too curious person next to me reads the title. I have just read Two Views on...

The Courageous Love of a Frightened Mother

  Today I was talking to a mother who shared with me a story that made me smile and cheer her on. She told me that her teenage son was beginning to make friends with a girl at school who had a reputation for being a trouble-maker, promiscuous, badly behaved and...

Throwing Flower Bombs

Today I walked my neighbourhood with my  six year old niece. She took her phone and I told her that we would go on a photographic journey. "What's that?" she said. I told her that we would walk the streets and she could take photographs of anything she wanted and that...

The Thing about Gladys

  Yesterday the second female Premier of NSW was sworn in and apparently it took only about 15 minutes for the press to get to this; Journalist: Julia Gillard was prime minister and she copped a lot of questions about her marriage status and her child status,...

How do we practice being long-suffering in a polarised world?

This is a picture I saw in my newsfeed today. And also this I haven't really wanted to write about what's going on over in the USA because I needed to believe that it's all happening "over there" and not "over here". Why should we take such interest in what happens...

The spiritual discipline of repetition in an age of surface-skimming

When I was a minister in a church I used to think up of a new message to impart to my hungry congregation each week. Each week I would sit at my desk in my home and wait for inspiration. What I wrote had to be fresh, it had to be new, it needed to be a word for the...

The Shame of Loneliness

I am prone to feelings of loneliness. It's not because I'm single, I'm quick to add I realise. I used to feel this way even when I had that "special someone" in my life. I feel it when I am alone and also when I am surrounded by people. I don't feel it all of the time...

On Homo Incurvatus In Se and Becoming

    In my reading group a while ago quite suddenly, the concept of original sin popped up unexpectedly while reading a beautiful work of literature. The short story we were delving into did not mention it but as we reflected on what we read, a question...
