    Today the world - tomorrow the pub!
    Despite introducing himself as a Man U supporter with the usual arrogant traits associated with that particular leisure pursuit (witness, if you must, his comments on my blog last Sunday) I think I shall grow to like Hedge Hughes and his ogblog. He's one among many "who fell off the back of the bus and couldn't/didn't get back on - the bus being the church." and who (down the pub most often it seems) "are still wanting to work out our faith in awe and wonder (aka fear and trembling)".

    Ogblog relates to the word 'openground', which "says it best for us right now":
      "openground has meaning for us - meaning we will elaborate on and continue to explore using this blog - and we suspect that it will have meaning for others who sit at the roadside having also fallen off the bus - maybe it's time to go public - today the pub - tomorrow the world!"
    Well, I'm in a similar place except I think I may have witlessly fallen onto it and the bumpy journey's making me queasy. Right now, worn out after lots of human interaction (morning prayer, school visits, funeral gatherings), I'd really like to be able to say, today the world - tomorrow the pub!
