This poem was written for a first performed when I took office of President of the Baptist Union of Great Britain. I shared it in front of a couple of thousand people in central London, Methodist central hall.
I wrote this poem for those of us who are bored of being a Christian, those who have lost their childlike adventure of following in the slipstream of the most beautiful man who has ever lived. If you’re a bit stuck I hope this poem may encourage you to do something new today as you follow Jesus.

Catch me if you can
Are you bored?
Stuck in the mud of tedium?
Do you yawn at the dawn and sigh when the sky sparkles with lights fantastic?
Are you tired?
Stuck in the rut of mediocrity?
Or do you see?
Day by day
Hour by hour
Wow, even minute by minute
Sounds intense? Yet it makes sense
That the One who says, ‘Come, follow me,’ would be
The One who moves to the new, to you
That need the spark
Who sit in the dark
Need the ‘plug in life abundance’
The absurd dance
Merriment beyond the glass of plonk
Beyond the worshipful soft rock songs
That you and I belong
To a team of world changers
To have a safari in our place
To give chase
The One who says
I’ve got a great plan
Catch me if you can!
