Meeting Tim Chesterton and Paul Trathen

It has been good to meet my fellow bloggers Tim Chesterton and (rather briefly) Paul Trathen. I don’t think I have mentioned Paul here before; his blog is called the journey home. I have mentioned Tim’s blog An Anabaptist Anglican, but perhaps not his other blog Tale Spin which is more about his music and his story-telling. Tim is an Anglican pastor in Edmonton, Canada, but originally from here in Essex. Paul is also an Anglican priest, but still is here in Essex.

Tim Chesterton and Paul Trathen I met up with Tim yesterday (Thursday) in his old home village of Southminster, about 20 miles from me in Chelmsford, and we had a good chat. And then this evening I went to the concert he gave at the old village church of Rawreth, only fifteen minutes from home, where Paul is the parish priest, so I was able to talk to him in the interval. Folk is not generally my favourite type of music, but Tim performs really well, so I enjoyed the evening a lot. I was also pleased to be able to support Habitat for Humanity, for which this was a fundraising event.

The photo is of Tim getting excited while introducing a song, with Paul in the background looking straight at the camera – which is actually my mobile phone, hence the moderate quality.

There is just still a chance to hear Tim perform again in England, tomorrow evening 30th June, 7.30 pm, at St. Leonard’s, Southminster. See here for details.
