I’m 56 and Priest in Charge of St. Barnabas Little Ilford. Part of my role is to work with others to create a new way of being church that engages with the local contemporary culture and community of East Ham.
I must stress the postings on this site are my own and don’t necessarily represent the views of the Diocese of Chelmsford, the Bishop of Chelmsford, or any part of the Church of England, or any other organisation, that I may work within.
I am also a passionate fan and season ticket holder of Gillingham Football Club! I would walk 500 miles for good coffee, great whisky and beautiful rum ….. and maybe for a couple of Empress types!
Oh yes … and in case you missed it the first time …. I must stress the postings on this site are my own and don’t necessarily represent the views of anyone apart from myself!
Couldn’t find a contact for you, but I used a quote from your old blog on my site (after having to google it since a tumblr person stole it w/out crediting you). I just wanted to let you know. Happy New Year!
thanks – it’s interesting and grabs me all the time …. the comment tho is not mine but from adbusters and can be seen on this blog too here: https://theshinyheadedprophet.wordpress.com/2011/06/29/apocalyptic-adbusters/
thanks – and happy new year!
Hello again Rob,
I found you in the summer of 2010 – and I am grateful for your thoughts on ‘the way people believe rather than waht they believe’. It is now time for me to get serious about my own pioneer ministry. And possibly write applications for APL and APEL – scary stuff, – but adventures are. You can find a bit about my social work side here:
Hi Rob, Someone posted a link to your blog on FB. I like that poem about bleeding on the carpet. Very powerful. I see that you are about new ways of doing church. With that in mind, I’m working on a doctorate that you may like to participate in: http://www.reimaginingnarratives.com/questionnaire/survey.cfm
I hope you’ll join the conversation. Cheers, Theresa
thanks … sadly i don’t think I can take part at the moment … but thank you.
Greetings to you! At some point in the coming months ahead, I would love to dialogue with you more, having begun reading your blog. There is so much depth to this writing that I can’t stay away from it. 🙂 Thanks for writing these things out for us to see and share with you.
thank you so much for your kind words
dialogue is always good… and I’ll swing by your blog too
I had not realized it was still sending across to my previous blog. Heh. In any case, how would you like to communicate?
either here or via my email address in the profile is good 🙂
I followed up with sending a message to your Facebook.
Hi! I just wanted to say, I don’t believe in christmas (it’s pagan) but I do believe in the Messiah, the Anointed Savior, Jesus the Christ, or Yahshua Hamashiach, thank you Lord for your blood which you shed for me and all who believe. Oh, and I teared up at the picture you posted, he indeed was a little Bl@ck baby boy. Color matters. The ancient Hebrews and all those in that region of the world at that time (Egypt, Middle East, etc) were what we in America would call “Bl@ck” today, I know it shouldn’t matter, but it does. Thank you that image of the Messiah is so powerful indeed. I downloaded it, printed it out and my children colored it and its hanging on our wall today. Bless you.
thanks for your kind words
