We are all artists of our own lives. This art of life itself is meant to be shared. Come and share the ramblings of a poet / pastor / prophet ...and ordinary person...

am going to start a simple series of posts of "Why I (john tw) am a
Christian". I am not aiming for the popular apologetics that is aimed
at proving the Christian faith is reasonable and evidence based... I
believe others have done that better than I could do. But rather I want
to make explicit some of the gems that I have found in living into my
faith that has made my life the good of what it is and has become.
This is my experience of walking the Christian life out. It is only
possible to experience this kind of life giving grace if one is truly
open and honest enough to face one's personal pain and willing to turn
to God for help.
This grace of inner healing and forgiveness is an experience that is shared around the world by Christians and is essential to the future of our communities. I can not think of a better example of this than what is found in the struggle for healing and justice as expressed in the book -- No Future Without Forgiveness by Bishop Desmond Tutu.
