From the Revd Tim Gunter
Sir, - I have been reading the Church Times since 1955,
and this is only the second time that I have been moved to write to
you. I was saddened by the tone of the Back Page Interview (16
January) with Maggie Ross, and particularly by the reference to
"the spiritual suicide of ordination".
Having served as a parish priest for 41 happy years, I have to
ask what on earth she thinks she means; and, when the Church needs
enthusiastic young priests, why you should publish such negative
and idiosyncratic rubbish.
