I don't remember mentioning

Have i mentioned that i write? I write for a magazine called eChurch active ( ) and have written various bits of poetry and prose for special events and one off magazines. I am still very much clambering up a steep learning curve on this, but it is fun and gets the old creative juices going. When i get around to setting up my website i will post my articles there, but for now here is my latest submission - before publication no less - for 'McCollum's musings' I am a blogger!

Contact via our shared admiration for Martyn Joseph - singer, songwriter, activist and good bloke ( ) .
