About me

Location Scotland, United Kingdom
Introduction I am: a fan of ginger beer; walking on the beach; thinly spread vegemite on hot, buttered toast; warm hearths on wintry days and warm hearts most every day.... Rather fond of: Protestant reformers with long, flowing beards; spontaneous musical gatherings; conversations silly and serious over good cups of coffee.... Quite partial to: early modern Scottish church history; sunsets that leave me breathless; Orkney, the Inner Hebrides and the beauty of East Lothian; chocolate.... I think that the bible's a cracking read; that Jesus is pretty amazing; and that life is a rather surprising and amazing thing.... I tend to: wander and wonder and try to be thankful, as I ponder and process this pilgrim way.... I know: the healing power of laughter; 'that my Redeemer lives - what joy that blessed assurance gives'; that 'the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice'; the peculiar, aching, joyful beauty that is Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis, and how it moves my soul.... I give thanks: not always, for I can be forgetful or overly-busy...yet, nevertheless, God is good and I am blessed indeed.
