Go With The Flow

When I wake up on my writing day, my brain is often awash with creative ideas and projects. I sometimes have several competing blog ideas swirling around in my head. It can be hard to know which one to blog. And it is not just blogging that fires up my creativity. There is the allure […]

Lament and Repent

As much as people have been panicking lately, we have seen acts of incredible kindness of generosity. It is a silver lining of crisis. Unfortunately, we have also seen some of the worst of human behaviour. I think this says a lot about humanity – and how pandemics can pull the curtain back on our […]

Jesus in Isolation

Now that Easter has passed, I find myself thinking about Jesus and his times of isolation. I must have isolation on the brain. I wonder why. In these trying times, it can be tempting to think others who have gone before us have not experienced this hardship. When it comes to Jesus, we may be […]

Faith in a Time of You-Know-What

Ever since the you-know-what hit mere weeks ago, I have seen an escalation of anxiety in the world. The presence of a pandemic, coupled with social isolation, has served to heighten the anxiety of many people. This has me thinking about fear, lament and faith. What exactly does it mean to have faith in a […]

The Piano Man

I have always been allergic to musical instruments. As a teenager, I was an enthusiastic singer, but I could not bear to touch an instrument, let alone attempt to play one. I avoided instruments like the plague. The reason for this was my lack of coordination. I was accident-prone. I was constantly walking into things, […]

Lamentations Song – 1000 Views Special

No-one was more surprised than I was to see Lamentations Song pass 1000 views on YouTube this week. In honour of this momentous occasion, I feel it is time to review this song again. (I have already blogged about it before, but why not blog about it again?) There are certain unwritten rules when it […]

Why I’m Going to a Worship and Creatives Conference

So next week is the annual Hillsong Worship and Creatives Conference (WCC). I’ve been waiting all year for this. I went to their inaugural WCC last year and when it was over, I immediately paid for my ticket for this years’ conference. I have many reasons for returning to the WCC, some relating to my […]

One Divine Breadcrumb

Last week I shared about how writing, and any other act of faith, is a little like following the trail of breadcrumbs through the forest in the manner of the fairytale Hansel and Gretel. Today I would like to share a recent breadcrumb experience. It was a Sunday night at church. The preacher had just […]
