Those of us who were privileged to be in church on Sunday evening for Conversational Evensong with Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP witnessed a moving and powerful evening. I was deeply struck by his humour, his humility and his deep deep faith, which came across in virtually every sentence he uttered. His homily was a masterpiece in how to use narrative and was a masterclass in content and delivery for this preacher. He didn’t shy away from difficult questions or resort to cliché or platitudes. He has a rare gift for a religious figure of being super intelligent and deeply theological yet human and accessible.
