I’m a fairly recently retired Christian church pastor, and writing is one of the many things I enjoy. But having 65+ years of rich life and work experiences, enjoying good health, still doing some casual and voluntary work in various areas, being free to travel and belonging to a large, much-loved, and widely scattered family tree, and doing lots of jobs around the house with my nearest and dearest Helen – all this means that blogging can’t always get first priority. Life is often like that. If you subscribe, WordPress will email you whenever I post.
I’m putting on the record some of the things I’ve done, learnt and observed in a lifetime of involvement and service with people in general and especially with the Christian community. I want to share these things with whoever is interested.
My marriage and family and my work have given my wife and me much joy and satisfaction – it’d be great to record some of the memories in word and image. But dare I do that, really?
I’ve always been a person of many interests – God’s fantastic world, photography, family history, music, politics and Australiana, gardening and small projects at home, walking and swimming, people and how they tick, Christian history and history in general, work and thought, the sea, ships and ship modelling, and medical matters and especially infant surgery and pyloric stenosis, matters that have affected me deeply if very privately until now (click on this link to my blogs on this if you’re interested – or just curious). I’m sure I could extend this list.
Again, if you’re interested, my Flickr photo pages bring many of these interests to more life – just use the Search box to select a theme. I’m also on Facebook, a great tool for keeping in touch with family, friends and my networks a little better than without it. So if you’re a Facebook subscriber too, you’re welcome to make friends with me there.
There is plenty to do, just in the world of blogging – but so little time to do it all. For several years I’ve enjoyed the blogs of other people, some of them strangers-become-friends. Now I’m doing my own blogging.
