Real Faith ~ Real World
I believe that in Jesus Christ God has offered the healing balm of salvation to all creation. This salvation is more than simply an event or experience to look forward to in the future. It’s the radical healing of all creation – humans and the entire universe – right now, and in the age to come. This is tremendously good news; and it’s news all Christ followers can proclaim with joy and boldness.
This is the place where I explore what it means to live into that good news – to nurture the real faith within us and connect it tightly to the real world beyond us. I hope you’ll join me on this journey of nurture and connection so that together we might embrace faith more fully, proclaim it more authentically, and share it with greater grace and love.

Just as in pre-missionary Tonga, the moral sense of the people was identified with the moral sense of the chiefs, now in Christian Tonga, Jesus is the “chief of chiefs” – the ‘eiki ‘o e ngaahi ‘eiki.

Recently before I spoke at an event, people in our fasting community all around the world prayed for us. I received messages from sisters and brothers in the Methodist/Wesleyan family who were praying in Russia, Kenya, Costa Rica and other places. How good it is to be a world Methodist!

Playing the long game now means living in the midst of the present (and passing) order of things but not living according to its dictates and not aligning ourselves with its short sighted power grabbing agendas. We are the inheritors of real authority. We must learn to live as those worthy of the trust.
