I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which our techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.

  1. Excellent! I’ve downloaded this video – just to remind folks of what has been and continues to be lost. I see no end to “moving the line” of what is banned as “hate speech”. The day may come when even reminders of what used to be will be considered “hateful”. Thank you for passing this along, sir.

    1. You are very welcome, sir. All we can do is try to slow the decline, digging our feet in until either we manage to arrest it, or at least attract enough people to join us that we have some hope of arresting it. All else is in the hands of God! But when all one can do is try, then try one must.
