Statement of Faith

Labels are not always helpful, but they are sometimes necessary. I have described myself as a contemplative evangelical.

As an evangelical, I am a member of the Evangelical Alliance, and rely on their statement of faith, which is written with much greater clarity than I could ever achieve. This means that I place the highest regard for Scripture, holding it to be the Word of God, and my guide in matters of faith.

As a contemplative, because I believe that the slow reading of Scripture, and the ancient path of exploring silence, solitude and quiet reflection offer the opportunity to connect with God in an intimate and special way. In following this path, I enjoy reading and reflecting upon the written accounts and prayers of the Saints of the past, which offer profound insight into the nature of contemplation.
