Welcome to 'Conversations' ...
Worship, prayer, preaching, inspiration and song

Mothers are God’s best blessing!
God bless mothers
hands full, heart full
food for the hungry
comfort for the upset
brief moments of rest
countless moments of joy
God bless with strength
enough for each day
God bless with courage
the truth to say
God bless with grace
for her to hold and give
God bless with peace
to breathe, and rest, and sleep.
HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY!!
Family Tree: Material about my family tree, ancestry, where my ancestors came from in England ...
In 'Conversations.net.nz' you will find:
GOD ... resources for worship, especially 'Calls to worship' and confession
- prayers and home-grown 'psalms'
- Communion liturgies

interpreted and reworked for prayer and for use in worship
LOVE ... poetry, discussions on marriage & intimacy
and dramatic explorations of Biblical love stories

SONG ... original music, for worship and for kids
... and lots of lovely photos!
Because I believe ...
that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true!
that growing to maturity in Christ takes work
that courageous honesty of heart and soul is required
that worship is wonderful
that each person is a taonga, a treasure,
no matter the age, assets or abilities
that the local church is the hope of the world.
In conversation ...
... chatting with friends over coffee
... finding words for the moments and movements
of mind & body,
my spirit alive with God-Spirit
... getting to know Jesus Christ,
ever curious as to what he would say and do
... bringing every fibre and phrase into the eternal conversation of Father Spirit Son
... conversations with children and elders,
with church as it is and as it might be
... with my people in my place and offered to everyplace
... with pain and with celebration,
with beauty and with scars,
with the sacred and the ordinary,
with scripture, song and silence.
