I was inspired to start this blog as a result of attending a training session on the Facebook Generation. I’ve been a Methodist minister for the past fourteen years and currently serve in Helsby and Kingsley, Cheshire. Part of the motivation behind the blog was an opportunity to dialogue with a diverse group of people. I have been a preacher for 25 years but know I have much to learn. So when I blog about a sermon or reflection my hope is that my congregations will have a forum to respond, either by name or anonymously.
Other than my work I am actively involved in my local RoundTable group serving as secretary this year. I’m a member of the local golf club although no great golfer. I’m also the chief cook and bottle washer in our home.
My inspiration for ministry and life continues to be fuelled by interaction with people. The main blog I personally follow is visualtheology which never fails to inspire. I regularly visit twelvebaskets.co.uk to trawl their library of resources. I read fairly regularly for work and occasionally the words jump out of the page and slap me in the face.
