This is a personal blog, not (usually) an academic or technical one. I am a Christian, a husband and a Dad who spent 20 years working 2 simultaneous careers. One in (mostly) IT&T, the other as a Baptist Preacher and Pastor serving independent churches throughout Sydney and NSW. In 1997-98 my wife and I spent time in East Africa leading a group of church planters and trained and mentored local pastors and ministry students. We also started medical clinics and children’s nursery (prep or preschool) schools. From 2009-2015 I worked exclusively in pastoral ministry (including at a Chinese Church in Sydney). Following a difficult season in the Marsfield Community Church that was harmful to our family’s health, I moved them interstate and am now, among other things, studying towards post-graduate research. My research interests vary but are mostly in Old Testament, particularly the influence of late editors and writers upon the shape of the Bible stories about how the monarchy developed and declined.
But, because this is a personal blog the content and emphasis varies. It has everything from trivial fun to detailed bible related topics.

I don’t get many comments on the blog, but I do like interacting with readers. I even welcome dissenting views. But I won’t tolerate trolls – i.e. people who comment only to make personal attacks or are trying to sell something – their comments will be deleted :)
Thanks for visiting!
