About

Welcome on my pages were you can find some extra thoughts which I did not express on my religious websites.

Always having been intrigued with the being and movement of things, bitten by the dancing microbe, I still love the mastery of movement and the mastery of being which can be noticed in the history of things. Loving hiking and climbing and some adventure, I am not so keen on flat pastures, so I am pleased to be able to live in the rural community Leefdaal in the hilly landscape of Flemish Brabant, Belgium, in the European Union.

As a Christadelphian or Brother in Christ I, Marcus Ampe think from a Christian view. As Brother in Christ my ideas and spiritual mind are moulded on the foundation to be found in the Holy Scriptures.

In daily life, I am a simple soul, who encountered already two near dead experiences in his life, having been paralysed in 1999, after a serious car crash, for six months, having to revalidate for a long time, never to become the old one any-more.

For several years I have been active (mostly under my stage name) as a dancer, choreographer and choreologist. I ended up in the art education and became retired on April the 1°, 2009.

Still having a son at home studying to become a commercial airline pilot I had to topple up my pension till a reasonable income. I took a part-time ground-job at the airport of Zaventem (Brussels Airport), taking care for the security of the passengers, as a security officer.

As a Brother in Christ, I now try to spread the belief further and do some voluntary work for the Christadelphian community. I am responsible for the startpages in Belgium for Religion, Christianity and Protestantism and for several Christadelphian websites.

Most of my thoughts are placed on my ecclesia site Christadelphian Ecclesia Brussels-Leuven and on the Flemish Brethren in Christ site Broeders in Christus, next to the forums of the Bible Researchers: Bijbelonderzoekers Journal and on Christadelphians Journal, which both became integrated in Christadelphian World where I look and discuss more religion connected news; and further you shall be able to find other writings by me on the  Belgian Christadelphians Google SiteChristadelphia and Hoop tot Leven | Redding door Christus Jezus .

(Added in 2014:) You are also welcome to visit two lifestyle magazines I founded. The first one dares and does not mind to look at difficult subjects are to present controversial ideas, which could make some people taking offence on what is brought forward, hence the name “Stepping Toes“.
The site created in March 2014 “From Guestwriters” does want to tackle different subjects and would like to bring writings of as many different writers under the attention of the readers. It would be lovely it can grow out to a Readers Digest, offering a selection of poems, one of my first loves, and other writings from all over the world.

Thanks for passing by. I do hope to find you visiting my pages again.

I hope that what you find here and on other pages of mine, will be encouraging and give hope and insight that will enrich your journey through life.

Please do feel free to give a comment on an article, a support or to share some ideas with me and my readers.

    The second one has a long preface and contains some unusual remarks and somewhat heated responses from some of my readers.

    Please enjoy them!

    Also, I would like to wish you all the best in your future endeavours as a dancer, choreographer and choreologist. :)

      Thanks for the links.

      I like poetry a lot and in the 60ies and 70ies I also had some poems of my own published. I also have been interested in what wisdom people could bring in just a few words by a wise sentence or phrase worthwhile to be quoted.

      The years as dancer have gone and as choreographer I am also now retired and not working in the field any-more. First I was frustrated I had to go on retirement and thought my work was not appreciated any-more. Today I over the negative state of mind and leave the future now to the younger people and those more fit than me. The body does not always want to do any more what we would like to do it.

      My archive was taken up at the archive and museum of preforming arts in Brussels just before my retirement, but since a few months I am back in the running looking at the ‘Art of movement’ again > http://pinterest.com/marcusampe/mastery-of-movement/

      Today most of my time is used for the preaching of the Good News of the coming Kingdom of God. Furthermore I have towalk at regular intervals with my little sheepdog and enjoy the beautiful nature.
      And I would love to have some more time to read some good books and poetry again.

      The internet treasure is providing a good alternative to get to know several poets and visual artists their work. So I am happy that I still can have that to enrich me further.

      Dear Kitty,
      Thank you very much for your nomination.

      In this world which shall come every day a little bit closer to the End-times, having to face a Third World War, the message of peace and understanding can not be underestimated.
      We may be happy that Word Press provides us with the means of sending a peace message out into the world. We should make good use of it. I sincerely hope I shall be able to bring such a message of mutual understanding on my different websites, of which Marcus’s Space is my personal civil site, whilst the others are more religious and spiritually orientated.

      I also look forward to find people with the same spirit of accepting other people with different ideas than their own, coming from different cultures, having different coloured skin, but all with the same human fire in their heart of love for all creatures, great and small.
