Today, in the protestant tradition, we celebrate Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the week leading up to the week Passover occurred somewhere approximately 33AD (forgive my approximating with the calendar, I wasn't actually there...) It was the week before the crucifixion of Jesus as remembered in the Christian calendar. It's called Easter, though where the name came from I'...

For your amusement; (I thought you’d be interested to know) Father has me back inside a congregation. Also for your amusement and delight  - I’m loving every minute of it!

It’s fascinating how He orders our lives. The one thing He asks us to do is to love Him and do what He says out of that place of Love. This is how I have ended up back in a congregational structure, by attending to His vo...

You ever wonder about the origin of a word? I do, sometimes I find it by accident, which was the case recently. This can sometimes lead me up the garden path into the land of fancy and fun, oh yeah! Sometimes it’s sparked by a serious quest (Cue mystic trumpets and horse noises from random computer game) while I’m looking for something else, and sometimes I’m just being perverse and lookin...

Not the word you were expecting, right!?

That happens to me often, welcome to life inside my head. I had several other posts lined up as possibilities to go this week, but they’ve all had to take a back seat to my inability to pull the concluding thoughts out of the ether and onto the page. I live at the Mercy of the Father. Unless He shows the way forward, I am completely lost.

Many years a...

“The winter season is when roots and tubers grow.”

I recently heard this from Father after spending time in the garden on a super frosty day. I needed to hear it. It has been one of the most revelatory things I have heard from him in the last 12 months!

I think that in desert times we can often be bewildered by the process we are going through. I have heard a lot about how to position myself...

…Christ in you, the hope of Glory… Colossians 1.27 (NIV)

…your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God… 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV)

There are thin places on the earth. For long years many different peoples have known their country and where the sacred sites are, the holy places, the ley lines, the dangerous places, the quiet places of the soul. That...

Forever and Ever. This is who we are. One foot in Eternity, one foot in Time.

Actually, that’s about as inaccurate a description as you can get… However, it's also in some way paradoxically true. (One of the joys of living the way we do, there's a paradox around every corner, sometimes two paradox may assault you and treat you to a Morris dance!)

We live in these clay jars, right. (2 Corinth...

A while ago, I was taught to ‘exegete’ the Bible. To use study tools to discover the meaning of the original meanings of the original languages the text is written in, rather than using our predisposed English, first world brain to lay a meaning on the text. (that, I am semi-reliably informed, is called isogeses)

The english text is:

But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their streng...
