About

Hi I’m Chris, I used to write, and then I didn’t; now here we are in the summer of 2018 and I am starting again. The reason for this, is that in the past, writing for me has been one of the best and most useful tools of self discovery. Through writing I learned to truly access my thoughts, the things that do not come to me in verbal conversation, seem to flow freely when writing.

We live in some very interesting times and I myself am in a different phase of life that I am trying to fully make sense of. So, as it was in the beginning, so it is now. It is time to awaken, to live consciously, to think, to feel, to discover. How that will take shape I am not sure, essays, random thoughts, book reviews, poetry and who knows what else, there will be a fluidity of thoughts and belief as I work to discover whatever it is I am trying to discover.

So here you are, reading about me. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for visiting unhiddenlight & I hope you will stay, read & comment as I journey my way through trying to make sense of the world around me.

The title, Unhiddenlight, comes from an awakening that I experienced towards the end of 2012 & on into 2013. Basically it was revealed to me that I had spent far too much of my life trying to figure out what the world wanted me to be & how to fit in. I realized that not only was it time to stop conforming, but it was time to discover who I really am. Which is where my initial “about” for the blog came from:

This is about letting my light shine, no longer will I live in the fear of who I am, my light is bright & beautiful & it is time I stopped hiding it.

A little more on me? Well, I was born & raised in Leeds, in the north of England, I moved to Texas in 2002. I am a family man, a Christian, a music lover, a sports fan and a gamer among many other things. I have discovered in recent times that despite my disdain for politics; social justice and civil rights are very important to me. Accepting things are the way they are, just because that is what we are told is for me, in 2018, not something I am comfortable with. Yet at times I just want to cruise along in my privileged protective bubble and not have to face the pain of this world. 

So with that, the best way I can think of to describe myself is a very complex, simple man, the contrary nature of such a statement sums me up beautifully.

 

Everything on this blog is my own work unless otherwise indicated, please be respectful of that.

  1. Chris, your post exploring what you believe could have been copied from a diary I don’t actually keep. The comments regarding the absence of what we might call ‘real men’ in today’s church mirror conversations taking place in my own congregation.
    May I suggest an addition to your reading list? A series called ‘Lion of War’ (Cliff Graham) has earned high notes from a number of the real men doing their best to live Jesus in my community.
    I pray you grace, courage and more unhidden light as you walk His path. Thank you for sharing your work.

  2. Hello there my friend! I hope that all has been well with you and your family. I would like to let you know that I have nominated you for the Loyal Reader Award. I really appreciate the fact that you visit my page and I would like to honor YOU with this award.
