Beauty surrounds us, but we usually need to be walking in a garden to know it - Rumi
When God called me to write a Christian blog the title ‘Reflections in the water’ came to me, in the sense that as an old man I was sitting on the banks of a river, the river of life, dreaming. The words of the prophet Joel came to mind:
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: Joel 2:28. (KJV)
How strange then that St Peter took that verse as the basis of his first sermon to the Jews after Pentecost. (Acts 2:17); and using that same verse God called me to write my first blog.
Peter is a father and a grandfather who has been retired from full time employment for a number of years
