Revolution & Resolution

This post is a slight reworking of a short talk, or 'testimony', I gave in our church on the evening of April 24th, 2016. It is also a follow-up to two previous blog posts - My Rocky Road and God is Love.

Briefly, those two earlier posts were about me learning, in my heart as well as my head, how deeply God and His family, the church, love and care for me. That probably sounds nuts, coming from someone who's been a Christian for thirty-six years - you'd think that I jolly well ought to know by now! We could say that I'm a little slow on the uptake at times, but perhaps instead it is because the road has been long and bumpy...

Basically, what I want to talk about now is the culmination of my long and, at times, painful journey to wholeness. Having learned, in the first couple of months of 2016, how deeply I am loved has given me a sense of security which I've never experienced before.It's completely amazing; I didn't know it was possible to feel like this, and it's taken quite a bit of getting used to.1 John 4:18 says:
