My parents celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary this year. They are still very much in love. They have brought up 4 very socially aware, intelligent, good looking children who – may still not know how to dress for the occasion, but all have started wearing shoes more appropriately. Our family is great to hang out […]Read more "Support Families."
I am a son. As so as I enter my parents house, I stop being a 29 year old, experienced musician, trainer, photographer, adventurer and become their third child. I get fussed over. I get shown the snack cupboard. I get to use their car. My mother makes sure I have a clean towel, and […]Read more "I like being son / brother."
Go back in time about 8 years and you find me and my best friend Evan driving in a van to Sydney. Our conversation revolved around the idea that when each of us were apart, we didn’t really miss each other and when we returned to each other it was like we had never left.

I flipped to a page that described the train trip home to Newcastle after returning from Singapore. There were some cheeky kids sitting behind me who […]Read more "Aids orphans and Mi Goreng"
We are the catalyst redeemers. We aren’t the redeemers, as we are broken and sinful. We are the catalysts, the space makers, the co creators, the lynch pins that Jseus partners with to bring redemption to all. Justice, perfectly melded with Mercy is redemption. We are the catalyst redeemers, the captain planet of Mercy and […]Read more "Catalyst Redeemers."
I’ve been some freaky and different churches. But as we sat in a large bus with a crew of less then ten aboriginal kids with the promise of Go-karting later I chuckled. The pastor/ bus driver began talking about ‘earnestly seeking God’, I had become almost the summariser of the trip, looking for ways to […]Read more "Earnest – GO-KART church."
I know very little of physics, or how the human body actually works. I know very little about sport and I only a know a few words in languages other then english. But I know the powerful force of joy. I know of being so joyful that daily abuse didn’t touch who I […]Read more "What I know I know about Joy"
I am constantly surprised by what people settle with. Friendships that silently rip our identity and self respect to shreds. Romance that oppresses and changes us into people we never wanted to be. Schedules that eat our souls. Jobs that are uninspiring prisons. Mortgages that hold us back from adventure. Children we regret having, parents […]Read more "Journey. Risk. French Toast."
