Tales of a Country Parish, Colin Heber-Percy


Author Colin Heber-Percy Published by Short Books ISBN 9781780724973 EAN 9781780724973 Bic Code Cover Hardback


Rural priest, Colin Heber-Percy, began writing an early-morning newsletter – a collection of daily reflections, stories and prayers – to stay in touch with his parishioners and comfort those on their own during the unprecedented circumstances of Spring 2020. Word spread, and soon his uplifting bulletins were being eagerly consumed by readers around the country and beyond. In these wise, kind and surprising contemplations, Heber-Percy draws upon a kaleidoscopic knowledge of art, nature, music and metaphysical poetry, as well as religious texts, and interlaces them with amusing and touching vignettes from his Wiltshire parish. He meanders from the many breakdowns of his rusty Ibiza, to the dramas of the village carnival and the joys and agonies of leading worship on Zoom with one parishioner regularly reading the gospel accompanied by her noisy budgie on her shoulder.
