Duncan’s Sites

The amalgamation of a number of blogs started over five years.

  • Pacific Highlander – an assortment of reflections on life, popular culture and faith.
  • Generations in Conversation – Material relating to my doctoral research on generational change.
  • Driving with Purpose – My house church was studying Rick Warren’s book. I started the blog because of the way the material irritated me.
  • Gospel Notes – Reflections on the Four Gospels – often linked with my preaching. Includes a few guest posts by Mark Cornford.
  • GodPost – Started as the basis of a paper on resources for theological reflection (for a Master of Theology paper). Continuing as I read and review material on theological issues such as metaphors of atonement. A key part of my doctoral research.
  • Mission Resources – a few posts from my work with the Uniting Church in Australia. The team has been disbanded now.

The Inspiration Room Daily

The amalgamation of blogs I’ve written on popular culture, advertising, film.

  • Duncan’s TV Ad Land – television advertisements and viral videos reviewed each day. This site was established as a way of explaining to people from my workshops how to access for themselves the interesting, funny and disturbing material available online.
  • Duncan’s Print – Started when I was sent a brilliantly funny piece of work by Ant Keogh, for Carlton Draught. It didn’t fit with the TV ads and so a new blog began.
  • Duncan’s Interactive – Online interactive sites reviewed.
  • Duncan’s Music Videos – The growing number of music videos being released online, with reference to the people behind the scenes.
  • Duncan’s Propaganda – Election-related advertising.

  1. Duncan,
    I was blown away by your work this morning. Our pastor used your generation Y in a sermon. As a former graphic artist, and interior designer, I had to research your site. It is time for unity and I am so glad to see how Jesus is using the arts. Keep up the good work.
