Occasional observations, comments, journals and narratives to inform, challenge, and entertain. 

I have written a number of books and papers, ranging from biblical commentary and theology to resources for Christian schooling.  

Home based Bible studies especially (but not exclusively) for people unable to meet in a virtual or actual Bible study group.

I love taking photographs: scenery, candid portraits, and especially street photography.  

My greatest passion is making Jesus known and the Bible understood. I am of Ngai Tahu and English heritage, and am now retired from a 50 year career in state and Christian schooling.

  The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.        For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.  He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.        And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him,  and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.

Colossians 1:15-20
