One thought on “Bishop Michael’s funeral

  1. Bishop Michael wants us all to pray together and for each other. His funeral service was beautiful and the girls so brave to share about their dad. Its so sad to think that such a great man has had to suffer with unkindly people in his life, when all he wanted was the best from everyone. I remember Michael was so pleased he had been to all our churches in the Northleach Benefice, and I remember him in Compton Abdale his last church in the Benefice.
    A wonderful, courageous and kind man. All in my prayers.
