This weblog is intended to document my journey as I seek to follow Christ and to grow in my knowledge and love of Him. I had been thinking of doing this for a while and failing to get around to it, but recent events in my life have made me wish I'd started sooner. Still, better late than never!

A brief biography. Born in 1962, in Cumberland, I became a Christian in the spring of 1980 in St. Paul's Elim Pentecostal Church in Carlisle. Shortly after that, I came to Lancaster to attend the University. I'm still here, never having managed to achieve 'escape velocity'. In the early years I attended an Elim church here too, but that closed down in the summer of 1984, when I was getting married to my wife, Linda.

We looked around for a church, and settled on St. Thomas's, here in Lancaster, as 'the best of a bad lot'. We stuck with it, and it gradually grew on us, so that now, after more than a quarter of a century, we feel very much 'at home'.

A fresh, fresh, start.

I started this blog about my Christian life in the summer of 2011, but due to some changes at my then web-hosting company, I lost access to any space to host it. However, my ISP then made some changes to their web-hosting arrangements, and I was able to republish the old stuff, and start adding things again.

After some time, I took a partial break, and published very little - not least because of having experienced a somewhat bruising encounter with some people who objected to one of my posts. I 'plucked up the courage’ to start again in late Autumn 2021, and posted quite a lot.

Most recently, someone pointed out that my website wasn’t ‘responsive’ - i.e. it didn’t ‘respond’ well to browsers on devices with different screen sizes, so a complete re-format followed.
