Red Thread Poets – Glorify God – Honour Poets

WHAT IS RED THREAD POETS?

more than a poetry platform!

Red Thread Poets is a gathering place for contemporary poets and songwriters under a Mandate from our Triune God, our FOUNDER, with the express purpose of glorifying God.

We support God’s plan to bring about the Government of God on the earth and, wish to inspire all those interested in all that our awesome God is doing.

We honour all poets and songwriters, and we especially recognise that they are inspirational in providing wisdom, understanding and knowledge essential to living in these times. We love and respect the writers’ exploration of their own lives and the lives of others in their writing, the risks they take being open and transparent, and their desire to lift others up through their walk on the ‘write side’.

Only a small number of Poets appear on this Home Page – go to POETS & POEMS for all Poets.     NOTE that Poets appear randomly on a rotation in both places.

Enjoy a poem when you arise each day, or anytime 24/7 …  AND refer us to a poet you love … Oh yes – bookmark this page!! Also see the Search icon above.

TIPS from our FOUNDER: don’t rush … savour … make an appointment with yourself to come back … then anticipate, re-immerse, and savour again … repeat!

Below is a rotating selection of our Poets (includes also Daily Devotional, Poem Challenges, Past Poet Reflections and the Saviour’s Christmas each December)

Canada
Born in Scotland, lived in England, undeservedly married to Veronica, living in Canada. We have three daughters with wonderful families. An accountant by training, but a career mostly in Canada in varied business environments. After learning about Our Triune God's Provisional Covenant and then retiring in 2014, I started writing poetry to try to understand the source of my childhood confusion and struggles since. The Lord's constant encouragement and love keeps drawing me to express my appreciation.

The Depressed Poet comes from many years of suffering from Depression. While in the hospital for this a doctor suggested that I try my hand at poetry and that is where life changed for me. I wrote about things I never really thought of before like God, Jesus, Heaven and so on. I do not consider myself a great or good writer because, I am not. What I am is a man, who stumbles through his words, so he can make it through his days. I also host a podcast called, The Coffee and Prayer Series.

People call me creative. Although I'm not always sure exactly what this is and how they know this with declarative confidence I've come to accept this as part of the unique expression of the Godhead through me. What this means is that I get to do lots of fun things, like facilitate creative writing groups, art exhibitions and teach a range of art mediums. The core theme of all is the Unleashing of Creativity. Over the years I've seen Holy Spirit take people to places in creativity that facilitated liberty, restored and awakened their spirits to Him. I've come to understand that creativity is about revealing truth and am constantly challenged to extend the dimensions and modalities of awe and wonder towards the One who is Truth.

PAST POET REFLECTIONS

There are so many Poets who are no longer with us, and we will honour them as we  go along. At present our Poets published on this website have the opportunity to propose a past Poet. They will remain archived on this site – to enable reference by our followers into the future.
