Farewell to Juliet #pisky

Today we said our farewells to Juliet O’Connor with a Eucharist in our church in Cupar and then in Kilconquhar.

Juliet O’Connor was special and the story was special. She and her husband Revd Dan O’Connor served in India, in Scotland and then at Selly Oak College where Dan was the Principal. Between them they seem to have tutored many of the people who are now in leadership as bishops and archbishops in Anglican Provinces in the developing world. In that sense, they were instrumental in bringing to birth the present patterns of partnership which are embedded in the Anglican Communion. As I have blogged my way around the Anglican Communion, I have found that Juliet and Dan have been there before me and know and are known by so many …

It’s an inspiring story of faith, mission and post-colonialism. I did my best to tell it here
