Welcome to St Bride's

During the interregnum we are pleased to welcome Bill Wilson.

Ordained in Manchester, Bill now lives in Brighton with his wife Anne. He retired in 2010 after 17 years at St James, Paddington during which time he also served as Area Dean of Westminster and a member of the Diocesan Advisory Comittee for the care of Churches.

Since then he has covered other interregnums at St Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe and St Michael's Cornhill. Amongst his interests, Bill lists 19th century church architecture, campanology and 'church-crawling'.

'They would not accept him.' (Matthew 13:57)

Rejection can be very difficult to cope with. Jesus was regarded as an upstart because to his contemporaries, carpenters didn't become teachers. They couldn't grasp that sometimes the Holy Spirit calls us to make a big shift in our attitudes. Because we find change threatening or bewildering, people often close their minds. Jesus left us a good example of how to deal with that kind of rejection. He remained patient and resolute.

Lord, when we face rejection, help us to seek to understand, and grant us patience and love to remain faithful to ourselves and to you. Amen.
