Men of God

I didn’t realise the date was this recent, I thought I saw the Reverend in 1974 at Ashton Gate, in Bristol. Although the sermon didn’t radically change my life, it did calm my mind a little.

I can remember standing with my late father among the packed stadium, there was no room left to move as the 25,000 capacity was overflowing. British Rail put on special coaches to bring people from as far away as Exeter and Plymouth. Coaches filled the car park that usually housed soccer fans, it was truly a momentous occasion.
