Welcome to Nourishing Connections. I hope you will discover more and more about God, and God’s extraordinary world, as you explore this new site.
Nourishing Connections is the title of my book of poetry, published by Canterbury Press in 2020. The other two books in the 'Nourishing' trilogy are Nourishing Mission: Theological Settings (Brill, 2022) and Nourishing Memories which is being published in instalments on Covenant from June 2021. I have also edited, with Ian Randall, Exchange of Gifts: the Vision of Simon Barrington-Ward (Ekklesia, 2022).
I was ordained 41 years ago and have loved serving as a curate, missionary, theologian, vicar, bishop, and mission theologian, in London, Kenya, Cambridge, Islington, Sherborne, and the global South of the Anglican Communion. Now living in Cambridge, I serve as Honorary Assistant Bishop in the Diocese of Ely and Research Associate at the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide.
Here you can read articles, chapters, books, and poems which I have written over these years, together with photos, videos and art. I am very grateful to the editors and publishers of the books, journals and websites where these first appeared.
The seven paintings of Women in the Bible, at the top of each section, are by Silvia Dimitrova. We have enjoyed working together on this project over the last 17 years and my accompanying poems are in the poetry section. Tristan Latchford has composed seven anthems on these paintings and poems. From 25 Sept to 30 Oct 2021 the paintings were part of the exhibition 'Global Images of Christ: Challenging Perceptions' at Chester Cathedral.
