Who am I, the author of the majority of articles on this website ? Well, my name is Peter Wise. I am a married male with a grown family, and also a grandfather. I am Australian.
A retired professional, I started my civil/ public service career as a ‘bean counter’. During the 1970s and much of the 1980s, accountancy was quite a boring profession by comparison to these days. During the late 1980s I shifted to a line of specialised professional work, Internal Auditing, that called for objective assurance and consulting. It required lots of analysis and evaluation: ‘right up my alley’.
Interestingly, as far as I am concerned, I actually became an Internal Auditor about the same time that I began to seriously trial Christianity for myself. I also joined a fellowship of faith, i.e. a church, shortly afterwards.
During the last three years of my career, I led an Internal Audit team belonging to a diverse and complex organisation with some 10,000 employees. I reported directly to the CEO, and relevant executive committees. I wrote a bit more about my career, to highlight how God can assist us in our education/ career/ jobs, in the article, “God in the workplace”.
In my personal life I have certainly experienced some challenging events, e.g. loss of a loved one and my own personal serious health issues in the past. So my life has certainly not all been ‘smooth sailing’.
But you know, I can write in retrospect that my life experiences, summarised above, grounded me during my journey towards the rock-solid belief in God’s existence, and the sound Christian faith, that I have long possessed.
