    On blogging
    The past month has been one of discovery for me, in which I ceased being a passive consumer of the world-wide web, and began to contribute instead. Greenbelt got me into it, as Greenbelt so often does. Europe's predominant Christian arts festival has featured largely in my life for many years and its community is rich with gifted and enthusiastic folks, whose gifts and enthusiasms rub off on me and encourage me to get creative.

    So I joined the Greenbelt Blog and enjoyed the discipline of sitting down each day and thinking of what to write; a good reflective exercise. And, being a peripheral techie (before I went into the Church full-time I was a computer programmer) I've found myself reading around the blogging phenomenon, and getting my own website set-up today with which to keep on blogging post-Greenbelt (or perhaps, alongside Greenbelt depending on what its blog team decide to do about our future when we meet this weekend)

    So, on this platform, this is the first of hopefully many blogs. And hopefully also some good dialogue with those who take the interest to read them.
