The Revd Dr John Newton

The Revd Dr John Newton

Prebendary Norman Wallwork writes:

THE Revd Dr John Newton, who died on 27 March, aged 86, was loved and respected alike in the Roman Cath­olic and Anglican, and the other Free Church traditions, as within his nat­ive Methodism

Recollections

The Revd John Edis writes:

FURTHER to your obituary of Canon Wilfrid Browning (Gazette, 7 April): I was one of his students on the Oxford Ministry Course from 1985 to 1988, and knew him as a dear friend ever after

The Revd Dr Donald Ian Gordon

Canon Hugh Beavan writes:

THE Revd Dr Don Gordon, who died on 26 January, aged 86, was a priest who always set the pattern of the Good Shepherd before him. Like Chaucer’s poor priest, Christ’s lore and that of his apostles twelve he taught, but first he followed it himself

Canon Wilfrid Robert Francis Browning

Canon Wilfrid Robert Francis Browning

The Rt Revd Stephen Platten writes:

CANON Wilfrid Browning, who died on 23 February, aged 98, will have been known to scores of clergy from the dioceses of Blackburn and Oxford, in which he was success­ively the Director of Ordinands for the best part of 30 years. Indeed, he was in effect a pioneer of that posi­tion

The Revd Professor Marilyn McCord Adams

The Revd Professor Marilyn McCord Adams

Canon Professor Jane Shaw writes:

WITH the death of the Revd Pro­fessor Marilyn McCord Adams on 22 March, aged 73, the Church and academia have lost a distinguished philosopher and theologian; a kind priest and wise spiritual director; and a significant, prophetic voice

Recollections

The Most Revd Dr Desmond Tutu writes:

FURTHER to your obituary of the Rt Revd Keith Sutton (Gazette, 31 March), Bishop Keith was a re­­markably comforting man. Learned and sensible, he had a sponge-like ability to absorb the anxieties of others

The Rt Revd Michael Henshall

The Rt Revd Michael Henshall

The Very Revd Mark Boyling writes:

THE Rt Revd Michael Henshall, who died on 7 February, aged 88, obtained his degree at St Chad’s College, Durham, and served his title in York diocese.

The Rt Revd Keith Norman Sutton

The Rt Revd Keith Norman Sutton

The Ven. George Frost and the Rt Revd Michael Bourke write:

THE Rt Revd Keith Sutton, who died on 24 March, aged 82, was a well-loved Bishop of Lichfield. Wherever he went to the wide-flung parishes of that diocese — and he visited all of them — Keith con­nected instantly with those con­gregations. Often, he would just stand in the aisle and talk to his people, usually without notes, always directly and coherently, telling stor­ies to make his points. At the end of services would often come the un­­usual request: why didn’t he go on longer? Communicating with people was always Keith’s strength
