Bishop Derek Rawcliffe passed away early in February. He’s a retired bishop of my old Diocese (Glasgow) who had been most recently living in Yorkshire.
He was a bit of a controversial bod by all accounts while he was Bishop (I wasnt in the diocese during his episcopacy) – he made for challenging and uncomfortable times. After his retirement and settling in England, he came out on national TV. Brave man.
I havent been able to find anything on the SEC or Glasgow and Galloway website which would acknowledge the news. but i was today directed (Via Lesley’s blog) to an article in the Times – well worth a read!
Rest peacefully +Derek
