I am a missionary of a young Catholic community called Verbum Dei. My pastoral work is varied, but could be summarised as helping people to discover and grow in a personal relationship with God, especially through the Word preached and through music... and as a consequence, helping them find and commit to their own personal calling and ministry. I am a musician and composer, and having completed a doctorate in theology on music in theology, I taught for a while the Gregorian University, Rome. I was the Banaan Fellow 2011-2012 at Santa Clara University, California, and teaching at JST, Berkeley. And I am now a lecturer in theology at the Banyo campus of Australian Catholic University.
I can feel my hair going grey with the quest to express the height and the depth and the breadth and the immensity of the truth we have access to when in all trust and audacity we open ourselves to how God is in our world and in our lives.
Why are we scared? How beautiful is a world-view that can sing about God present in all and through all!
