People have been asking - so we'll tell ya. PASTOR FOX IS RETIRING. ... yes, he's always ...
The blog of Anthony Fox - clergyman, artist, and soul whose intentions are good (mostly).
I was born in 1951 and spent my childhood and youth in the country, in a world before TV, computers, mobile phones, and pocket calculators. It was a world of outdoors, of wireless sets, of books, of plays, and of poetry. I grew up in the Swinging Sixties and the Sexy Seventies.
Joy and I were married in 1973, and together we hung around in the trendy arty set in the 70s and 80s, we’ve met a lot of artists, attended a lot of gallery openings, and collected a lot of artworks - perhaps that’s why I paint; perhaps that’s why we spend money we haven’t got on things that are beautiful.
I worked in plant sciences for 20 years, I have walked in deserts and hidden in laboratories.
I have basic qualifications as a Nurse’s Aid, and I have fainted in an operating theatre.
I have a Bachelor of Theology (a real one) and post-graduate qualifications in Christian Ministry - I became a Lutheran Clergyman, and was so from November 2001 until November 2016.
Now that I am retired from paid employment I paint and carry on.
