Hi. I’m a lecturer at a theological training college in N Ireland. I would describe myself in Jesus’ terms as ‘a bruised reed’ because I recognise in that language that that is what I am- small, insignificant and bent out of shape by sin. Yet by the grace of God I do matter in His eyes. So much so that He gave His Son to restore someone as seemingly insignificant as me. I delight in that. And I hope that as this blog grows other bruised reeds might find help, encouragement, a little stimulation and similar delight.
