Philip Sudworth

Philip has retired from a career in the education service. He is now kept busy by voluntary work with local children's charities.

His series of articles, Pew by the Door, which appeared in the Methodist Recorder over the 2004/2005 Church year, has been expanded into a book and his other writing includes a discussion booklet, Certainty or Search. He has had articles on faith published in eight countries.

Living with young grandchildren has given him renewed insights into awe and wonder, love and trust.  The challenge of frequent 'Why?' and 'Why not?' questions reminds him of how important it is that in explanations we use language and concepts that will be understood, that we recognise that some things are beyond our current level of thought, and that anyone who thinks they have all the answers hasn't yet found half the questions.
