Dark Materials Or Unimagined Possibilities?

Vocation As Resistance – God moving through, in, before and beyond  us

While Craig Roberts worked to train innovative Christian leaders in Australia and New Zealand he was called to follow the bardic way of writing full time.

He explores what takes place when Spirit-led vocation becomes a way of life – unexpected journeys following the Holy Trinity down unimagined and daunting paths of possibility.

In his poetry he often uses two Scots Gaelic phrases: Anam-charaid (anam cara in Irish) refers to the soul friend Jesus Christ.   An Geadh Fiadhaich is the Scots Gaelic word for the Wild Goose – symbolising the wonder of the Holy Spirit who moves untamed by humanity.

His latest little poetry book, Vocation As Resistance – God moving through, in, before and beyond us was published shortly before the BBC broadcast the third of Philip Pullman’s series His Dark Materials which seeks to set the world free from the fictional magis erium which some readers identify with a dark period in the Roman Catholic Church, church which, says Pullman,  kills freedom and humanity. I think Pullman is himself prisoner of a particular cultural period which for a time hi-jacked the Roman Catholic hieratchy

Pullman comes from the Old World. Roberts comes from the New World. Which shall we follow? Craig Roberts little book explodes Pullman’s half truths. In it the author explores what takes place when Spirit-led vocation becomes a way of life – unexpected journeys following the Holy Trinity down unimagined and daunting paths of possibility.
