The rocker beckons #pisky

It’s been a day both ordinary and extraordinary. We made the announcement that I shall retire in the summer and, overnight, I wrote to our clergy to explain.

‘How do I feel about that?’ people ask. Well the period between now and then will go in a flash, partly because it will be extra busy.

As my letter says, I think I have had a most extraordinary time in ministry and I am very thankful for that.

But I like the idea that, for the first time since I was ordained, I shall have quite a bit of time. I like the prospect of time for family – particularly the time that Alison and I will give to our children and to our grandchildren, Eve, Jack, Esme and Alice. I like the possibility that unexpected and different things may turn up. I’d like to be trimmer and fitter. I have some things that I want to do and others that I need to do ….

This is the letter I wrote to our clergy
