As a subscriber to the Anglican Life paper each month for many years, I have always enjoyed the submissions of clergy and readers at large. Over the years I always looked especially for Ronald Clarke’s pastoral articles; it is good to see that his daughter Melanie is continuing his ministry.
In the May issue, the poetic piece submitted by Eileen Colbourne caught my attention as well, conjuring up images of “No Place Like Home…”, a hermitage, a place of quiet solitude. Coincidently, Melanie’s article, particularly the last sentence, complemented Eileen’s article about Place: church being the one place “where the noise stops and the focus is on the creator,” and I could add further complemented by Jesus words in John 14:2: “I go to prepare a place for you.”
Keep up the good work, writers.
