Life status check

I wrote the following a few weeks ago but never quite finished it. Now I am not sure what else to add so figured I might as well just post it as is, before starting to write about what I have been doing for the last few months, such as my trip back to NZ and my holiday in Italy. Watch out for another post soon, hopefully! Or else bug me about it. In the meantime, here is what I wrote a few weeks ago…

Work is good. Busy at times, frustrating sometimes, but still overall my favourite of the companies I have worked at so far. There is less of a community feel than there was at Innaworks, which is perhaps unavoidable given the size of the company. I am slowly getting to know my colleagues a bit though, which is good.

My flat is not particularly community-like so far, but it is still early days and everyone (including me) has been away at various places a lot of the time so I am hoping that that will improve.

I seem to have reached a bit of a plateau at church, so I am not sure where that is going. I know people in my homegroup a bit, and a few others vaguely, but it does not seem like I am likely to get to know them much better. There is never enough time to talk in much depth.

I am still not sure where I am at with God. A bit stuck, not going anywhere, and my motivation is decreasing.

Travel is nice. There are still lots of places to see, and I perhaps have some people to go travelling with. I guess I will see how that goes.

Girls. Where am I at? What am I doing? I am not sure. It is difficult. I will not say any more here, but question me personally and I might be open to discussion.



  1. What is it that makes church distinctive? What makes it the bride of Christ and not a sort of faith-based rotary club where people make friends and donate to causes? The church needs to be changing people’s lives spiritually (feeding the poor is essential, but if it’s only feeding them using physical food, it’s only half the job). And when I say changing people’s lives, I mean the people outside the church, not the people within it, though the people within the church obviously need discipleship.

    Anyway. Long story short, and I may be off the mark with this, but perhaps the way to get past your church plateau and to direct your relationship with God is to figure out how you fit into that. How does what you do every day fit into Jesus’ vision for the church of making disciples of all nations? You’re certainly going to the ends of the earth which is great 🙂 I guess what I’m saying is that church can be a bit meaningless without that vision. Any group of humans can be a community, even a supportive community. The reason for a home group is that we need support and prayer for each of our ministries as the priesthood of all believers. We need support to encourage us and spur us on to see God change the lives of the people we work with and see each day. Otherwise we could go join any social club. And I’ll stop ranting now 🙂

    • Yes, perhaps so. But that does require other people to work with, and meaningful relationships with people in the world.

    • Okay. You can talk to me sometime, I may or may not have more to say depending on what you ask. My life is not primarily for entertainment, though.
