Berlin Rocks

We are back. We stayed with Kerstin Hack, who blogs at Berlin Rocks and runs a publishing company called Down To Earth. She is also our key contact for Berlin and is a very good friend.

Berlin is an amazing city. Nearly 4 million people, less than 60,000 church attenders. You do the math. Its a funky place and we have been considering moving our base here. We do have a feeling that we will live here one day, but sense the the time is too soon.
Future events that you might like to know about – March 4 Jesus next summer and a big worship experience with Noel Richards in July, 2005.

Back in 1985, when I was a young and working in Europe with OM, I used to go outside every evening, face Berlin, and pray that the wall would come down. It did, only 4 years later. I feel close to Berlin, as if there is an inheritance there. Something to do with teaching and resourcing. Lets see what the future holds

This picture is of my wife, Debbie. She says I never blog about her dreadlocks. Well, here is Debbie, with her red dreads, in Berlin. The family enjoyed the trip away from Prague. So did the Stuart family. It helped our minds to clear up and to make some important decisions for the future.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • Debbie – I love your hair. My 10 year old son has beautiful red hair. He wants to let it grow out so we can do dreads. I will have to show him your picture.

  • if i still had hair on my head
    i think i’d do it all in dreads
    an’ then i’d dye ’em copperish-red
    but i’ll settle just to gawk
    and wish for hair and do my talk
    cuz what’s left’s “reverse mohawk” …

  • My wife is jealous. She’s been thinking about getting dreads started . I’m just jealous because I don’t have enough hair to do it. I’ve got more red hair on my face than my head these days.
    Looks good Debbie
