About Padre

These are musings and ramblings generally of spiritual themes. That said, travel, public speaking, and cookery increasingly make an appearance and life in general may find its way to the page.

In my life’s journey I have been a preacher, a teacher, and a chapel manager.  I am an ecclesiastical historian, and theologian.  I have worked in inter-faith dialogue and as a Holocaust educator.  All have given me insights to things spiritual, and of things human.  I hope my musings may be of some help to those who read them.

I am a widower, and the passing of my soulmate and best friend has hurt but also strengthened me.  Dianne had long been my poetic muse, but in her passing, she has become an even greater one as I have found depths of emotion I have never experienced before.
