On Tuesday 19th January I had been invited to join a small panel of writers who had written ‘Words from Down Under’ stories uniquely about Australia. I knew I would be the only Christian on this panel. This blended well as our different voices were shared. However an issue arose that disturbed me. It was in the area of ‘forgiveness’. National identity and a 2015 perspective of Kingdom ie Christ as the KING ……. all nations, tribes and tongues . One SAVIOUR. One LORD. For your interest I will post below an image showing what happened. For a brief moment I know my ‘cap’ of writer slipped and Passionate Creative Christian came to the front.
My husband who took the picture felt what I did was appropriate but I know I felt more like a ‘preacher’ than a writer for a few moments. The whole room went incredibly still.
I was not speaking here about writing.
There were gathered in the Library men, women and a TV crew.
My prayer this day is that as we journey on we do KNOW when we must speak and when we must be quiet. If you are not a Christian what you say and write and do may not matter so much. When you belong to HIM your whole life must reflect His Presence.
Good morning! Journey on and light up your day with LOVE.
