Field of Dreams: if you build it, they will come!


In Memoriam: Michael Houghton

Michael HoughtonToday, December 18th, is the anniversary of the untimely death of Michael Houghton, second Bishop of Ebbsfleet. If he had lived, he might still be occupying that Office, and it is interesting but futile to ask how things might be today if that were so. Like Doctor Who, every few years Bishops of Ebbsfleet acquire a new face and a new personality. Each of us fans have a Doctor who is “my” Doctor, be it Hartnell, Troughton, through to Smith, while always maintaining loyalty to the show itself and the current lead. Michael was “my” bishop; and I suppose Ebbsfleet is my TARDIS. May Michael rest in peace and rise in glory.
