It took a while to attend this local anglican church a number of years ago, you see in a way , i was a product of an outreach by a very determined priest, and i thank the lord for him, it was about 6 months after the dramatic conversion i had experienced alone in the house , and feeling the desire to mix with the body of Christ i resolved to go one sunday morning, the hold up was that i had been meeting up with bad examples ie they were not particularly what i thought as a young christian what christianity was all about, however we dont choose i brothers and sister i thought, God wants to take off these rough edges who am i to protest, if i didnt like them too much in the natural but with HIS agape love it will easy, all my fears left, it was ok here, i felt quite at home, in actual fact i loved
going there and didnt miss a sunday for about six years, but things began to change for me there, i began to have a check in my spirit about infant baptism for one. to be continued.

I was drawn to this place in my early twenties, some how a famous painter got involved with my life, Patrick Heron, abstract expressionist, i was flattered, no one with such prestige had been interested with little ole me before, painting had been my first love, and down here artists were everywhere, some good and some absolute rubbish, he was much older about 35 years older but to me he was like a god, i hung on every word he uttered and i worshipped him from a distance, he became my mentor, it was arranged that i was to take my pictures to him every month for his appraisal, so i did ,cause he was also an art critic for the new statesman etc, well he introduced me to a world of colour through his favourite artist Matisse, painting became an obsession , it was who i as , i had a passport to being accepted, and i was for a while, for many years, but things came to a halt, which i will tell you later if your interested, signing off 4 now
for in the time of trouble he will hide me in his pavilion; in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me and you. ps27v5
