About us

Ponderings brings together blogs, articles and interviews pondering life, faith, and society from the perspective of those who choose to follow Jesus.

We’re looking forward to sharing some ponderings from a number of Christians from different backgrounds, worldviews and interests as we seek to navigate the 21st Century together.

There aren’t any experts here; just fellow travellers.

That said, we do hope the ideas, concerns and questions raised here will be both insightful and challenging, encouraging us ­– the Church – to engage seriously with our changing world, pursue thoughtful discussion and cast vision for a better future.

We look forward to journeying with you.
