Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. This blog is a personal blog about my thoughts and ideas. I am a Christian living on the Isle of Wight, which is apparently the sunniest place to live in the UK, hence the Island and sunshine theme (plus one of the names for Jesus is ‘The Sun of Righteousness’).
I am passionate about a few things that shape my thinking;
1. Gazing on Jesus – I know I really need Jesus in my life but there are days when I find writing as the best way to show myself this. I struggle in conversations sometimes but here is where I can think more and process what is happening around me. I also want other people to see Jesus too and hopefully break down some misconceptions about him.
2. Engaging with Culture – Films, TV, Music, Art…. from a Christian perspective and thinking about the meaning behind the media. I think it is important always to have a analytical eye on what is happening in the world around us. As a journalism graduate I wish to uphold truth and I am learning that power does not come without responsibility.
3. My local church – This one is still growing but I want to share with you why church is really exciting place to be and the benefits of living in community here on ‘the Island’
