Bishop Colin Buchanan died November 29th in Leeds Infirmary, and there’s been almost no coverage of it — not even in the Church press. Astonishing!
Colin was one of the most influential ministers and scholars in the Church of England during the 20th Century. Yet it seems today as if he almost never existed.
This podcast is a reflection on the anonymity of death.
It also references Robert Blair’s superb poem from 1743 entitled “The Grave”, together with the sublime illustrative plates that William Blake created to accompany the poem.
And, believe it or not, this is a Christmas podcast!
The cast is dedicated to the Very Rev. Laurie Thompson.
