This blog is a place where Rob Douglas reflects in writing about some of the things that impact the life of people who follow Jesus. Although he has a role as a local church pastor, the things that are written are not necessarily the official view of the Maida Vale Baptist Church, or Baptist Churches in general, but are intended to encourage people to think about the stuff that we come in contact with as part of the journey of life. Your thoughts and comments are appreciated. Rob believes that thinking through issues of life, faith and practice is a discipline that needs to be encouraged.
