When Bilbo Baggins is called by Gandalf out of his safe, cosy hollow he finds that wrapped up in the danger, insecurity and unknowing is a life of purpose, adventure and love.

You could say the Gospels are a road trip.
During his time of documented impact Jesus had no home and kept moving. His place on earth was an unfolding before the eyes of his followers – perhaps even to him. Very few people who encountered him got what they expected.
I want to be plastic, malleable, dynamic, a journeymen. My entrenchment, layered dogma and pursuit of the predictable are counter to the journey.
I am inspired by people who step out, love unconditionally, ask themselves difficult questions, and chose to step into new worlds with an open heart.
