I’m shocked by the ignorance of man to the goodness of […]Read more "Church has Changed… But do we let it?"

I walked into a room of under 18 year olds. They were bouncing off the walls energetic and as I ascended the stage there came a strangely peaceful quiet. I sat on a chair and started to eat from a bag of lollies. It was a large trash can of sweets. Of candies. Of chocolate. […]Read more "Share it!"
In the last few months, the amount of ground breaking, heart revolutionising, mind blowingly awesome information that has assailed my head and heart has today ended with me sitting in a hostel with a blank page. I don’t believe in writers block. But I am overwhelmed. So lets start with some simple thoughts. The bible. If […]Read more "Staropramen and the band of “don’t tell them I told you”"
I love dining rooms. I have spent large portions of my life in them. With people. By myself. Being loud. Playing guitar hero. Eating food. Making food. Doing work. Not doing anything. Learning. Praying. Doing speeches. Hugging, Sleeping, drinking teas. Occasionally cleaning, meeting new people, reuniting with old friends and family. Playing board games, doing […]Read more "Dining Rooms."
