The title of this blog represents somewhat of a theological haiku.
Gratia: meaning, grace and gratitude.
. Veritas: Truth.
. Lumen: Light.
Here, you’ll find my thoughts on Christian theology, art, politics, society and a little home schooling.
I hail from 14 years in the retail industry, 12 of those years in Christian Retail, working for Koorong.com; 11 of those years in retail management. I also have qualifications and some experience in community radio.
I graduated from Tabor Adelaide in 2014, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Ministry & Theology. I’m a husband, and for the past four years, a full-time homeschool dad to five. More recently, together with Homeschooling, I’ve been doing my own independent study, with the aim of one day attaining a Masters of Education & Theology. My current goal is to study through all of Karl Barth’s, 13 volume, Church Dogmatics, along with a large amount of his other works.
My academic research interests include Karl Barth, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jacques Ellul, Simone Weil, Albert Camus, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Hannah Arendt, Augustine, Victor Frankl, C.S Lewis, Reinhold Niebuhr, Church History, Pastoral Leadership and Political theology.
My interests include history, technology, music, movies, poetry and art. Over the past 25 years, I’ll also managed to study and acquire skills in music. Primarily, rhythm and lead guitar.
