The eventful non-event.

Next Saturday 6th March marks 29 years since I became a Christian. The 6th March 1981 was the most momentous non-event of my life. In an ordinary room, in an ordinary house, I spoke some ordinary words expressing sorrow to God for ignoring him, and asking him to forgive me. Nothing spectacular, nothing spooky, nothing particularly emotional – a complete non-event. Yet at the same time it was a life changing moment. I entered the kingdom of God and the whole direction of my life since that day has been different as I seek to live for God, not myself. No doubt about it, the 6th March 1981 was a massively eventful non-event.
