Requiem for a Rector

I should probably start by being very mature and spiritual and saying how very pleased for the wider body of Christ I am that they get the benefit of our rector as their bishop.  But while my head is there, my emotions are having a tantrum worthy of a toddler.  I DON”T WANT YOU TO GO!  How great is it that our church loves their leader and his family so much that everyone I have spoken to about it today has cried? So I am saying publicly here- to my vast international readership- how grateful I am to you Mr -soon -to -be- RIght -Reverend for your strength, integrity, vision, care, humour and wisdom.  Your family here in Gerrards Cross and Fulmer will miss you, your wife and your boys.
