Mike here. This my first ever blog. I’m a middle aged, middle class, white, heterosexual, male who lives in a leafy suburb in Brisbane Australia – about as “vanilla” as you can get. But … I love what Lynda, Rob and the crew are doing. It’s about 40 years since I first decided to follow Jesus – and its still as fascinating, strange, exciting and confusing as ever. I’m also a bit of a mystic.
I hope I can share some stuff that will be helpful to people looking for God. Heh – after all these years – I’m still looking myself. One of the guys who wrote the bible said its like looking through an opaque window. You’re absolutely sure of what is there – but you just know there is so much more to see.
I don’t really even know how this “blog” business works (dinosaur – I know) but if there is a way you can get back in touch with any questions, I love talking to people who are thinking through the God stuff. My only request is – I don’t want to get into the stupid “debates” that rave on on some pages. You know the ones – where people just yell at each other in ways designed to upset each other while ensuring no-one is ever helped in any way at all. I am not a bishop, or a philosopher – and I am a lover not a fighter. Love to chat – but lets keep it real!
