In the summer of 2013 I left my IT job (writing web software) and moved house to start a training post to be a vicar. Rather than go straight from one to the other, I decided to go via Western USA and Canada, in a convertible Ford Mustang.

I’ve had a website since the late 1990s, and it has changed rather dramatically over the years.  This section contains some of my favourite bits of my old sites, and some of the most viewed.  (At least, it will when it is finished!)

I was born in Oxford while my father was doing his vicar training at Wycliffe Hall – where I also did my own vicar training, twenty-three years later!  As I grew up in a Christian family, God has always been quite naturally at the centre of my life.

Quotations

Barth, subtle as always: 

All theological favouritisms are... forbidden: the one-sided belief in God the Father which was customary in the Enlightenment; the so-called Christocentrism which Pietism loved and still loves; and finally all the nonsense that is and can be perpetrated with isolated veneration of the Spirit.

Barth, Church Dogmatics I.1, 395
