Occupation Vicar
Location London, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a follower of Jesus, a husband to Rachel and a father to two sons John and James. I am the Vicar of Holy Trinity Barnes. In my pre-Church of England life I worked in marketing and did business stuff all over the place including a three year stint living in Russia. This is a Blog about all the things that I find that interest me and I think may bring others knowledge, hope, a new idea or some joy. A friend calls this blog my 'public filing cabinet' and I suppose he's right- it's where I file the bits and bobs I find, read, listen to and experience all in one place. I write too as it sometimes helps me work out my thoughts and to be honest I enjoy it. More often than not I just recommend. I try to share something every day though I don't always achieve this. If you like reading check out the 'Books in the rather slow making of a Jesus FoIlower' and 'David's Sermon Cloud' contains some of the talks that have encouraged and taught me. I hope something you find here blesses you.
