‘Return’: a poem

Return - Jennifer RookeThe latest edition of Grouch includes a wee poem by yours truly. You can read it here.

Its appearance today is timely; it’s my last ‘working’ day in New Zealand before I ‘return’ to Australia next week.

‘For all that has been – Thanks! To all that shall be – Yes!’


  1. That’s really nice. I like the way you developed it… “The Grouch’, I’ve never heard of it. Doesn’t sound like the kind of publication you’d be in ;-)


  2. Go well Jason. I have enjoyed the contact over the time you have been domiciled here. I’ve appreciated the times at National Assessment and the books you’ve graciously sent my way. Your take on ministry has kept me going through some dry times, so thanks for that also.


  3. Thank you for your kind words, Alistair. We leave feeling grateful for our time here in NZ, and with an abundance of wonderful memories of interactions with folk like yourself. Thank you for journeying with us.
