A new future awaits...

In around a month’s time I shall be taking my last service as a paid Anglican minister. I am taking retirement. It is a big step and not one being taken lightly!

Why I am praying for rain in Sussex

We are a right bunch us Brits aren’t we? We moan like Hilda Ogden about the lousy weather that usually plagues these islands but the minute we go more than a week without rain, we lose our minds.

Put loyalties aside to find killer of Eastbourne mother and son

In my book, loyalty, either to family or friends, is one of the most important qualities a person can have. But sometimes that loyalty needs to be replaced with a different virtue – loyalty to truth, integrity and justice. With the tragic death in Eastbourne of Gina Ingles and her little boy Milo in a house fire started deliberately, police are convinced that somebody somewhere knows something about who was behind it. Some people might call it “grassing” or “dobbing” their mate or partner in but that kind of loyalty is blind and clearly misplaced when you think that a little boy, an innocent child, died along with his young mother and another person is so poorly they have been put into an induced coma. Yes, somebody knows who did it. And to them, I would say never let your feelings get in the way of seeing things as they really are. And do the right thing.
