The House of Dots

The Bible is like a photo album It displays images from a long journey.   As we begin our own journey through this thing called life We pick up the Bible to show us the way. Charted by God it must be precise We examine the verses and take the advice   Walking through grain … Continue reading

A Poem – GUILTY AS CHARGED

My last couple of posts have been like a whirlwind for me – I know that some people following along who don’t know my background or the background of the Lutheran Church of Australia may have looked at my post a bit perplexed as to what exactly am I talking about. A tiny bit of … Continue reading

ONE BULLET

    Proof texts like bullets penetrate flesh An ugly distortion Of sacred text   Words are the bullets   Your right to bear arms   Find the words Remember the verses   Safety off Bang   Your dead   Sola Scriptura It only takes one bullet ———————————- This poem was a hearfelt sadness that … Continue reading

It is Time to Get a Porcupine…(sorry meant Concubine)

Ages back I wrote an offensive poem – so offensive it got moderated out of a Lutheran site that apparently welcomed different viewpoints – the poem can be found here. The poem explores my struggles to read the atrocities of the Old Testament. It is my opinion that we don’t fully acknowledge the stuff that … Continue reading

The Wind….Where is it Headed?

Many years ago, I tried sailing a small catamaran on Cockburn Sound in Western Australia. The wind was probably only about 1 knot, barely enough to move us in a forward direction. The wind did pick up a little bit, and I was white knuckle terrified. Reflecting on Jesus’ words to Nicodemus made me think … Continue reading

Beer Goggles

If it weren’t for the goggles I wouldn’t pick up   Squelchy carpets Thumping music Sleazy people Wanna root?   Goggles on   What a place! Friendly people Chicky Babes!   Beer Goggles and religion Much the same thing Obscuring your judgement Impairing your vision   Morning breath Pounding head Need to piss What the … Continue reading

The World is a Fiend

We are taught to shun the world as one  been bitten Shackle the flesh and ignore the passing Patterns of God or truth re-written?   Truth is plain In front of our eyes Read instinctively in what has been made The bonds of family Friendships secure Empathy Compassion Love   Life and death both intertwined … Continue reading

Actions Speak Clearer Than Words

I did my apprenticeship with the “late” Mount Isa Mines Ltd. They have since been taken over by Xstrata but in the good ol’ days it was Mount Isa Mines. When my apprenticeship was over I received a tool kit to replace the one that I had used during my training. The major difference with … Continue reading
