InterviewFebruary 19, 2008
I’m on the receiving end of an interview today over at Exiled Preacher. If you’re interested (!), it gives a little more insight into who I am and what I am about.
GD: Hello and welcome, Colin. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?
CA: Well first and foremost I’m blessed to be a Christian: I have known the Lord Jesus Christ in a personal way since I was five years old. Additionally, I am married to my treasured wife Nicki and am greatly blessed to have three children: Glen, Rebekah and Grace. What else can I say?… I’m from Scotland – born and bred – and spent the first 23 years of my life living in the Glasgow area. For the last five years I’ve ‘defected’ to Glasgow’s ancient rival, Edinburgh, enjoying ministry with Charlotte Baptist Chapel. In my current manifestation, I serve the congregation as an Associate Pastor, a role which involves regular preaching and discipleship of university students.
GD: Your blog is called “Unashamed Workman”. What prompted you to start blogging?
CA: Strangely, my wife. Months prior to UW’s launch, she and some friends had kickstarted a blog (titus2talk) in relation to Biblical Womanhood. It looked like a lot of fun! One day Nicki asked me whether I had ever thought of starting a blog myself. Knowing that I could never sustain such an endeavour without picking the right subject, I decided to focus on preaching; something I’m very passionate about.
