Welcome to the story of an 84 year old who as an adult, has been on a very unusual journey into, around and through Christendom (see the sidebar for a controversial definition) for over 60 years without having had any formal theological training.
It was in the autumn of 2018 that I decided to step back from all the divisive theology that had been a part of my life for so many years and try to encourage people to think about what they and other people understand by the word ‘God’.
Would you like to share something of your story?
It is said that there is a book in each of us waiting to get out. Instead of writing a book I created a web site over 19 years ago when I was already retired. I can vaguely remember that the purpose of the site changed four times in the first five years.
I had absolutely no idea that that web site would eventually become the foundation of what is now my current blog – that still contains some of the material – including the Mind Maps – that is now about 15 years old.
It was in 2008 when I was 72, that I was introduced to the likelihood of having lived with Asperger’s Syndrome or High Functioning Autism all my life. That was an exciting experience. Here was something of an explanation of why I think and act the way I do, and why I developed a bit of a reputation for asking some of the awkward questions to which there are no easy answers.
With this new introduction I sense that I’ve probably gone about as far as I can go, but I now have something tangible to share.
If I can encourage even a few people to think about something that they had never thought about before, that will be a success.
If you would like to ask questions or share some of your thoughts please feel free.
