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 and reflective 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.
