Twenty-five years ago, I had a spiritual experience which changed the rest of my life. I said ‘yes’ to Jesus. A decision I have never regretted. In the good times, it is God I thank; in the dark times, it is him I reach for. As I have got older, my faith seems more like poetry and less like prose. I have more questions and less dogmatism. I crave authenticity, love community, celebrate unity and long to see justice, mercy and grace. But oftentimes I’m muddling along – a pilgrim stumbling along a twisty-turny path.

Thankful today as always for the heroes of faith in my life – ordinary men and women who have prayed, loved, taught, preached, challenged, shown hospitality to me, forgiven me and inspired me to seek God afresh.
