Welcome to purple serendipity

Much of the time I find life perplexing.  I write to make some sense of it.   It is a struggle to reconcile my deep faith in God and Jesus with the world in which we live.  The two are  inextricably linked – yet, how do they fit together?  For many years I associated faith with religion.  Now I know better.  What I am still working out is how to live by faith.

My quest is not just about  inner peace (though that would be nice) but from an inner  desire to make some kind of positive contribution in a  choatic and uncertain world.   Too often I have charged head first into things with good intentions with not always such good outcomes.  My ways it seems are not God’s ways. 

So many questions run around my head about the way the world works, or more to the point doesn’t, for the most impoverished ones.  This is where my faith in God and logic reach loggerheads.  It doesn’t make sense, it doesn’t seem fair and I hate being so powerless to do much about it all. 

If  through these musings I am able to do something little then maybe it is worth it.  Until then I shall ramble on.

If  you relate at all to this then you are welcome to  join me in my quest. 

Whatever you do will be insignificant,

but it is very important that you do it.
