Musings on Scripture

– and what isn’t always said


Welcome to a time for Reflections.

If all goes well, each Tuesday I will post a reflection on one of the passages of scripture set for Holy Communion in the Anglican Church of Australia for the forthcoming Sunday. I used to be running a week behind that but now I’m preparing the reflections ahead of the Sunday concerned.

I was born in the UK and lived there until the family migrated to Australia, where I completed my schooling. After completing a Bachelor of Science degree I obtained post-graduate qualifications in weather forecasting and in teaching, but I’m an educator, not a teacher.

I completed a post-graduate Bachelor of Divinity degree in 1993, and have been active in my roles within the Anglican Church. In many of the parishes in which I have worshipped over the years I have preached, either occasionally or regularly. In the early 2000s I trained as a mentor for the Education for Ministry programme, which looks at scripture, church history and theologians over a four-year study period, and in 2008 was part of the ministry team at the Anglican cathedral in Bunbury.

I welcome comments on any of the reflections. There should be a space at the end of each of them for your comments. First comments from each respondent will be moderated to help filter out spam. After an approved comment has been included you should be able to comment without my intervention, but I do reserve the right to delete any comments which I consider offensive or off-topic. If you have a comment which you would prefer not to have published then please feel free to contact me by email (
