About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

    Hi Jonathan, thank you for taking an interest in this topic, much kudos to you! I am in two minds over this one, whilst employment is always a good thing, the potential environmental costs should not be ignored. Also I was hoping the Qld Premier would be a little more progressive with energy, eg leading from the front by championing renewables rather than fossil fuels – goodness knows Aus has PLENTY of sun & wind power! Ms P does a great job for the most part so I hope there is a transition in place to head in the renewables direction. Thanks again, D xx
