Who is greenFish?
The reality is that there are a lot of people who could either guess or, if they really wanted to, could do the research to find out who I am.
I chose the name greenFish not to remain anonymous but as a symbol that every Christian can be a “green” fish. That Christian faith and views of the world can be enrich by understanding how caring for the environment is about loving and worshipping God, loving and caring for our neighbours and being a ‘whole’ person/being. That every Christian can care for the environment from the basis of their faith.
I’m using the fish symbol because of its traditional reference to Christianity from the time of the early church, and because it points us to creation/being embedded in the world.
And “green” is a popular word to describe creation or environmental care.

The above are groups who have and continue to shape my faith but here are a few thoughts that describe my faith:
the Bible, Jesus, God, faith, the Cross.
creation revealing God.
followers of Jesus as witnesses to hope and life in its fullness or wholeness.
wine and bread.
silence. reflection. celebration.
Christians are broken people, just like everyone else.
hope. hope. hope. hope. And Love.
the uncreated God loves what was created and became a human to save it.
married to an amazing man.
with a baby girl.
a spare room for visitors and boxes of stuff.
a no-dig vegie patch. one rhubarb plant isn’t enough. our first raspberry crop failed.
we are renting in an area of Melbourne where rental prices have dramatically risen in the last few years.
