The Bishop of Worcester, Dr John Inge, married “HJ” Colston at St Katherine’s, Holt, near Bath, last Friday. His first wife, a well-known author, Denise, died of cancer (News, April 2014). Ms Colston, like the Bishop, has two children. The Bishop of Dudley, the Rt Revd Graham Usher, said: “It was wonderful and a sheer delight to share in Bishop John and HJ’s wedding with its rich theme of the love that has been kindled between them mirroring something of the love of God in Jesus. Family and friends of Bishop John were overjoyed that after the death of his first wife, Denise, he has found love and joy again.”
