On Keeping Churches Open

Ian Paul does a fantastic job in this four minute interview on Sky News, on keeping churches open and what he would say to the Prime Minister. Ian has done a lot of work in the mainstream media, and it shows; it's a masterclass in clear, compassionate and Christian speech, on a complicated issue and in a tricky context.

It’s worth watching for two things in particular. Firstly, the frequency with which he quotes Scripture in such a short segment (in contrast, sadly, to the fluffier varieties of clergy you often hear on news broadcasts). Secondly, the enormous grin from within his dog collar when he first appears, as if he can’t quite believe he’s wearing it.

Great work, Ian.
