Fresh* back from Greenbelt and I thought I would blog some thought and ideas about what we got up to. (And who knows, maybe this heralds a return to more regular blogging…). Way back in the past, the Greenbelt Worship team asked if we (the park life collective) would be interested in running a graffiti […]

2012 has been a bit of a year. I feel like have been plagued by coughs and colds for most of it, probably not true. Lots has happened, and I am glad it has. Here are just a few of the highlights: Parkology collective and lent (and advent) We are blogging over here, and our […]

hello 2012


So, dragging myself out of the last two weeks of sickness, I thought it would be fun to think a little about what I might want to achieve in 2012. Not in a new years resolutions kinda way, but more just a things I would like to do way. 1. learn to ride a longboard […]



A while back now, as we exited a season of Lent, I blogged some reflections of a community lent walk in our local park. In that post, I used the term ‘park theology’ and now, in an exciting, post-reductionist move, we have coined the term ‘parkology’! We will be blogging here, hopefully as a collective, […]

Light and Dark


If you’ve been following my blog for a while you will know I listen regularly to the Mars Hill Bible Church Podcasts, and have done so for a while. They have just started a series on 1 John. So far it has been good, interesting and is certainly making me think. This morning as I walked to […]

A while back I read Ultramarathon Man. It is a great book, very inspirational, but left me feeling that Dean Karnazes is nuts err, maybe a little OCD. His current “project” is a run across America (find out more here). Well I say a run, 40-50 miles for 75 days in a row… Last night […]

I took this photo at the beginning of a Lenten journey I went on with some friends. Every night we were present in our local pleasure ground, talking, thinking and praying. I didn’t make it every night, but those I did were good. It was quite hard explaining to people at work that I had not given […]

Wednesday lunch time las week was good. A sandwich alongside a conversation with Martin. We talked about a lot of things and not just about being part of God’s church. As we parted, heading back to our desks the conversation paused, paused on the statement of this blog post title: God is not a vending […]

The internet has been alive with all sorts of views and opinions on Rob Bell and his forth coming book (for light relief) if you have five minutes spare, do take a look at this case of mistaken identity, I can’t help but smile, especially at this tweet I have a ticket to listen to […]

A while back, quite a while back actually, church was this thing I learnt to understand as something that helped keep us out of the world. Now, I realise that might sound a little strange, but indulge me. ‘Being in the world but not of it’ was a phrase  I heard a lot as I […]
