More About the Vicar

Now that I have passed my the sixtieth year and my ministry as Canon Theologian prevents me from writing on matters of the church as I did previously, I thought to turn to my love of gardening.

We purchased our home in 2013 with nothing but an empty back plot of weeds and mature trees. I plan to transform it into an ornamental paradise garden for God’s glory and our pleasure. The blog is its story as I learn and grow with the garden.

This quote of Samuel Rutherford is never far from my thoughts:

Put the beauty of ten thousand thousand worlds of paradises, like the Garden of Eden in one; put all trees, flowers, all smells, all colours, all tastes, all joys, all loveliness, all sweetness in one. O what a fair and excellent thing would that be? And yet it would be less to that fair and dearest well-beloved Christ than one drop of rain to the whole seas, rivers, lakes, and fountains of ten thousand earths.”

If you are curious about Christianity, a simple, clear, and challenging explanation of the Christian faith as the Bible teaches it can be found here.

Please reply to me below if you would like further discussion on individual posts.

  1. Hi Henry , some time ago I came across your podcast purely by Gods providence and the timing was perfect as we had then decided the previous week to start a study on Pauls letter to the Colossians , I also came across a book by John R.W Stott which has been immensely helpful also. I have listened to you preach on Colossians all the way to mid chapter two and I can only thank God for using men like you to expound on Gods word to help young believers in the faith like me . Thank you Sir. May God continue to use you for his glory.
