I’m now retired, having been a secondary school teacher for 17 years, and then a minister in the Church of England for 23 years. Now living in Gloucester, U.K. I started a blog back in 2009, when I had a two month sabbatical. Those blog posts are still here, but then there’s a gap with infrequent posts until the beginning of lockdown in the spring of 2020. I’m trying to be attentive to God, to other people, and generally to what I see around me. I have always had a love for the written word, and am an avid reader of novels. As a minister, writing sermons every week gave me an outlet, and blogging is a continuation of that.
