“I believe what I write, or rather, by writing I learn to believe.” – Stanley Hauerwas
I’m making a concerted effort to take back the poetry, in the words of Walter Brueggemann. Not necessarily by writing poems, although sometimes. I’m trying to organise my life around the principle of one day to remember I am free, and six days to exercise that freedom. You’ll be picking up a pretty strong Judaeo-Christian vibe.
I write poems, prayers, words about and for God and try to articulate stuff around those old big questions – and I’m offering it up to see if anyone else thinks it’s worth a look. But mainly, thanks to Stanley’s insight above, I think it’s the best way for me to learn to believe.
If you’re confused by old posts suddenly appearing, it’s because this started life as a private blog/journal when I did the Course in Christian Studies offered by Willesden Area in London Diocese. Unfortunately they haven’t managed to get it on a website as far as I can tell, but the latest info is here: CCS General leaflet – 2012-14 | CCS Application form 2012. It was a great experience. I recommend it.
