This is primarily a personal blog where you get to share in the author’s journey in relationship with a loving saviour. He writes as your pastor who wants to encourage and support you in your journey using his own struggles and challenges with great humility.

At the centre of Reon’s quest are these words of Jesus:

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Mat 11:28-30 MSG)
