Adrian Plass

Tonight we went to a concert featuring Adrian Plass and Steve Bell. I am unashamedly a Plassian groupie. Since the first day I picked up and read “The Sacred Diary” almost 15 years ago, I have continued to find myself and my life experiences played out faithfully in its characters. I too have struggled with wanting to move the metaphorical paper clips in my life; of wanting to hear so badly ‘the still small voice of the Spirit’, that I am willing to catch any fleeting inspiration as straight from God’s lips to my ears. The people of God can be most un-godlike at times- and I do well to look within at my own sorry state rather than at the faults of others. So often, those faults become the centre pins of some of our most grace-filled moments. But for now, I say ‘goodnight’ with a merry heart, having laughed once again at the complicated way in which I view my universe. And I am once again grateful to the One true God, who in the words of one of Plass’s characters “is nice and likes me”.

  1. Adrian and Bridget were SO great, weren’t they. Thanks for introducing me to his work. Loving God and a good laugh are clearly 2 of the chords that bind us together eh?

  2. Oh yes..and so much more than that binds us together! I will have to tell you about the dream I had on Friday night.
