Trying to be a disciple of Jesus, drawing upon the collection of skills, abilities, limitations and experiences I’ve been given, and grateful it’s not all down to my own efforts. Husband, dad, educator, researcher, dreamer, historian, bread lover and cornet player.

In my day job I’m director of St Peter’s Saltley Trust, a charity supporting and initiating work relating to faith and learning in the West Midlands region.  This is my personal blog, and does not in any way formally represent the views of the Trust, so for more on St Peter’s Saltley Trust, see: http://www.saltleytrust.org.uk.

I also write on church, faith and culture in the 20th and 21st centuries, but can get interested in most things given half a chance – particularly music, history, food and sustainability, travel and outdoors, sport and the arts.

‘Mystic Trumpeter’?   It’s the title of a Walt Whitman poem which brings together two long-standing passions in life: faith and cornet playing!
