Why have I called this site: ‘Not Many Wise’?
Well, that phrase comes from some verses:
“… think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.
He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no-one may boast before him.”
1 Corinthians 1:26-29 (ANIV)
I can certainly relate to God choosing me – the foolish and weak person that I am. With God’s help may He fulfil the rest of the verse in all of us!
I started on my Faith Journey whilst on my sandwich year from college when I was first invited to a church meeting in Diss, Norfolk by an enthusiastic fellow student, and became a Christian then in 1976.
Upon returning to college and right up to the present day, I’ve not been restrained to any one denomination – believing that local Church is always important. Through career moves and life changes this has enabled me to play a part in the Assembly of God Church, Elim, various House Church Groupings, Brethren, Anglican and Baptist Churches.
I am married to Jackie and we live in Cambridgeshire in the UK.
I hope you find good, eternal things within my posts, thanks for calling by.

My day-job is running a horticultural nursery that sells mail order alpines, herbs, wild flowers, ornamental grasses and perennials to the general public and landscapers in the UK. Down the right-hand side of that website you will find many solutions to gardening problems. So please make use of the gardening information even if you live in a different country and can’t purchase the alpines and other plants.
Thanks from Peter Reason.
