is this the future of SA rugby?


a modern adaptation of a passage of scripture?

Unless

Unless you become like a teenager it is very difficult to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Without possessing dreams,
without going against the grain,
without a taste for rebellion, and a craving for something better,
there is little hope of ever leaving this world to enter the next.

So don’t let your dreams be crushed.
Don’t be conformed to the world around you.
Rebel against the mediocre, the bland and the lukewarm
and always set your hopes high.
Then, with the currency of justice, mercy and humility you will walk with your head held high into a brave new world.
And nothing will stop you.

Dave Hopwood

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
