Five Short Words

I started a blog in 2009 when I was on a sabbatical, and had some time to think and write. Many of the posts were around themes of peacebuilding – one of my passions in my working life as a church pastor. When I retired in 2018, I became active once more and try to write on issues that I come across – especially to do with inclusion v exclusion, scarcity v abundance, empire v commonwealth, business as usual v transformation, arrogance v trust, competition v cooperation, self v community, individualism v connectedness …. and the real life choices we make.

Blogging is usually about using many words, but often just five short words can get a point across. Even four, three, two or one word. And using no words at all is sometimes the best way to communicate. (But I hit on five words as giving a bit of leeway).
