A BIRTHDAY – A theology of play – THOUGHTS

Happy 75th Birthday,26th March, 2018  David, mate and best friend.

2013 (7) a ginger ice-cream at the Ginger Factory, 17 July. - Copy                                                                                  *****


Have you ever heard of a man call Mark Galli? Yesterday, I read a piece he wrote.  He said,

I am writing a Theology of Play.    I believe that Resting, celebrating and Playing are central to life in the Kingdom of God.

We must be disciplined about the importance of our Prayer Life, Our Sacred Times of Remembrance and what we ‘Do’  in our Love and Service to the Lord


When we Rest, Celebrate and Play – and this is vital for human-well-being, we can do this with FREEDOM  in the FULLNESS OF JOY as we live our whole of life with  Christ as  Saviour and Lord.

                     Many Happy Returns of the Day, David. 

Blessings and Love to all.!



About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    I love this “play” theology. As our children were growing up I was dubbed “The Principal of Fun School” and was quite intent that one day such a ‘place’ would exist for me to guide in a principally sort of way! Your post ignites renewed hope that if even not in this earthly world, perhaps my whimsical visions will manifest in the next! Hugs to your dashing mate on the celebration of his earthly entrance!!
