News Update

On Saturday, 6 November 2021, and then again on Saturday, 13 November, I am offering a day on Reading Luke’s Gospel. While the first event will be at St Thomas Church Lancaster, the second one will be held at Cleator Moor in Cumbria. It would be great to see you at one of those days. Please follow the link for further details.

Welcome, I am a freelance speaker and writer. I have a passion for reflecting on our human life and vocation in connection with the biblical scriptures and the Christian tradition more widely.

I wonder sometimes if the teacher is not the real student and beneficiary.

These words by George Steiner have been a cherished motto of mine for years, except that I would be more definite and say that, as a teacher, I have without question found myself to have been a life-long student and learner, which continues to be immensely inspirational, life-giving, and at times even healing.

I would love nothing more than to share all this with you, so, if you are interested, do please follow the link below to find out about the kinds of talks, workshops, and study days I can offer.

My publications include two short and very readable books on Amos and the Song of Songs as well as a number of (mostly scholarly) articles, some of which can be read online.

Please see the following pages, if you wish to find out more about myself or would like to get in touch.
