I am a Christian first and foremost, but also a military wife. Having lived in 14 houses in 19 years, across three continents, I have been left feeling somewhat dislocated, I’m sure I have some psychological issues from all the changes! I rarely feel displaced though – God has always sent us to the right place at the right time.
I’ve called the blog Dislocated Christians because it seems to me that there are a large number of Christians who feel that they don’t fit in with the world, as much as we try to be obedient, we are never completely certain that we are doing what God wants us to. I know there are many like me who look at the suffering in the world and wonder where God is. This isn’t a sign of weak faith, if anything I trust that God is good and powerful to such an extent that I can’t reconcile those attributes with the pain I see around me.
I run a charity in Nepal that helps impoverished women, have set up and am involved with several anti-human trafficking organisations, work with refugees, teach English as a foreign language, am a Mum of two and when in the UK am active with the Labour party. I tap dance as well.
This blog aims to draw together everything I am interested in and am involved with, hopefully it will yield some sanity for me and be helpful to those who feel dislocated as well.
