My name is Peter Oliver and I edit this website. I am a retired preacher and social worker. I live in Perth, Western Australia. I have a Masters Degree in Divinity and am currently undertaking a Phd in New Testament Studies which I should complete in 2021.
I have been serving my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, for more than 60 years. In recent years I have become convinced that God has given me a particular mission – to encourage my fellow Christians to follow the teachings of Jesus.
I hope and pray that the articles on this site will encourage you to read and follow the teachings of Jesus.
Perhaps it goes without saying that I am a human being and all human beings make mistakes and get things wrong sometimes. So I don’t claim that the thoughts expressed on these pages are perfectly thought out or expressed. I would like you to regard these thoughts as contributions to discussions that are going on in the Christian church at this time. Because I know that I can get things wrong, I would really like to hear what you have to say about this site. I like to be disagreed with – it helps me to reflect and formulate my own thoughts.
A few administrative things:
- All thoughts expressed on this site are my own. If I have quoted anyone else I have done so in quotation marks and have acknowledged the source.
- All scripture quotations are taken from the New Revised Standard Version of our Bible unless otherwise indicated.
- Photographs are by Ken Maley. Ken is a professional photographer and all these images are copyright.
- The content of this site is managed by Lori Moore of Joyful Web Design. https://lorimoore-webdesigner.com Lori knows exactly what she is doing and does it efficiently, without fuss and at very reasonable rates. I’m glad I met her.
Thank you for considering these thoughts. I pray that God will bless you and keep you safe as you walk with him.
