Faith makes sense when it relates to the lives we live, in the culture that we're immersed in.


Hey, I'm Ralph Mayhew, welcome to my blog.

I love Jesus, I love Lyndal and I love the Church.

I've always wanted to engage in a conversation that enables faith and culture to interact in a manner that produces restoration for people..

In a way this blog is an experiment for me. I find that I grow most when I reflect on where I'm at and what I'm learning. I find that I reflect best when I write it down. Then the thought occurred to me that there might be others who may benifit in some small way from my ponderings.

If that is you, then thanks.

A little of my background:

I used to be a youth pastor at Melton Unitnig Church. I was then ordained as a Minister of the Word in the Uniting Church. My first placement was in seymour, where I stayed for five years, and worked alongside and ministered to some most excellent people. Now I am the Youth and Young Adults Minister at Newlife Uniting Church in Robina on the Gold Coast, Australia.
