Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

Please Note: This site, and the social networking profile pages connected with it, reflect my personal interests & views which do not necessarily represent those of organisations I am affiliated / associated with.


Life in Pneuma

I haven't posted for a while - I'd like to blame work for it but cannot on this occasion, I've been busy with various recreational pursuits (albeit some with an educational / spiritual value).

So, for those of you remotely interested, here's what I've been doing: I've been avidly following Sheffield Wednesday FC's final push for promotion (I intended to write about this but never got round to it), I've continued to attend my local Baptist church (I've been intending to write about why and what this means for me as a 'Free Christian' but have not got round to it yet either), I've been trying to get back into practicing mindfulness (one day I'll get round to writing a book about this!) and I've been enjoying the lighter, if not sunnier, days (see the photos below... and a few more here).

I recently listened to a sermon about 'Abiding in the Spirit' and it strikes me this is what I've been doing recently, simply enjoying the present moment, appreciating the gift of life - and it's what I need to do more of.
