In memory of Tim Keller | A personal tribute
'I write because I don't know what I think until I read what I say.' [Flannery O' Connor]
Why this blog?
The simple answer...
Because I have things to say and my voice sounds better when it is written down.
The variety of chair styles in the above image represents the various walks and stages of life, cultures,
backgrounds and places we all come from but signifying that we can all sit around one table and
respectfully engage with one another; sharing conversations, burdens, joys and perspectives.
This is a personal blog...
The perspectives, thoughts and opinions are my own and informed from personal context, crises, conversations, concerns, characters (real or fictional) and Christian convictions.
I am not writing on behalf of any specific group, or organisation (secular or Christian).
My intention is to pen my thinking with heart and integrity and for visitors to my site to
pause | read | engage - to think biblically and critically and to have conversations where truth and grace have the final say. .

'Writing is thinking. To write clearly is to think clearly. That's why it's so hard.' [David McCullough]
'Write about what really interests you. Whether it is real things or
imaginary things. And nothing else.' [C.S. Lewis]
'Writing is my way of expressing – and thereby eliminating – all the various ways we can be wrong-headed.' [Zadie Smith]
'Why does one begin to write? Because she feels misunderstood, I guess.
Because it never comes out clearly enough when she tries to speak.
Because she wants to rephrase the world, to take it in and give it back again
differently, so that everything is used and nothing is lost.
Because it’s something to do to pass the time until she is old enough
to experience the things she writes about.'
