An orgy of writing about myself

I’ve just added two pages telling a little of my own story from two different perspectives.

People who read this blog may want to know where I’m coming from, and experts say that people find a website more trustworthy if they can see a photo of the writer and know a little of their story.

So I’ve taken things I’ve written elsewhere and adapted them for this blog:

  • Seventy years in the making. The story of how I came to believe in Jesus, why I continue to try to follow him more than 50 years later, and how my beliefs have changed along the way – adapted from my Is there a God? blog.
  • Church and me. Since I write a lot on this blog about the church and how I think it needs to change to minister in western cultures in the 21st century, I thought I should share my experience of church, how I’ve tried to serve God and people through the church, and some of the lessons I’ve learned – adapted from a chapter I wrote for a book, Finding Church, edited by Jeremy Myers, which I blogged about 2 years ago.

I hope this is of some interest to some readers. But if this orgy of writing about myself leaves you with ennui, fear not, normal transmission will begin again soon! 🙂

  1. Na, keep orgy. It made me laugh 😉
    I think that a good ‘about’ section is important. I need context when I’m deciding to follow a blogger or not. Heck even I have a photo of myself and that’s really not something I’m comfortable with 🙂

  2. Hi PVS, thanks for visiting. Have you not heard that expression before? What didn’t you like about it?
    Hi Eva, however you feel about your photo, I’m sure it looks better than mine! But hopefully both our readers can decide we are more than “just a pretty face”!
