Hi, I’m Christine Woolgar. Here at Faith in Grey Places, I explore Scripture through creative writing—whether that’s 🖋 poetry, 📝 prose or 🎭 drama. I write to offer encouragement and fresh perspectives for everyone who wants to build their faith and connect with God, particularly through a greater understanding of the Bible. 

This site is full of devotional, reflective and thought-provoking pieces! You’re welcome to use them in worship—and I’d love to know if you do! Contact me here. If you use my work, please credit me and include a link to this site.

I publish something new each Sunday and occasionally I have the luxury of going back and making edits. If you like what you read, please consider signing up for weekly or quarterly updates via email.
