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 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, now my new ISP has made some changes to their web-hosting arrangements, I'm able to republish the old stuff, and start adding things again.

Even though some of the entries have never been published before, I've posted them with the dates they were written, because they make more sense (to me at least) this way!
