Graham Smith isn’t there yet. A very real “work in progress”, he continually scrabbles to get back on track, as the path winds upward between some very dense forest on the one side and an alarming precipice on the other. Leastways, that’s how it often seems…

Just occasionally, the path turns a corner and broadens out into a lovely sunny meadow, full of fragrant wild flowers that delight the senses and bring a glimpse of heaven on earth.

An engineer by profession, in 2007 Graham completed two terms of office as a district and town councillor in the historic market town of Sleaford, Lincolnshire. He is an authorised lay minister and is currently exploring a vocation to priesthood within the Church of England.
