Roddy Goes to Church: Church Life and Church People


No, not a children's book! An affectionate, optimistic look at church life involving, as it happens, Roddy and his friends who live in a small town. Problems and opportunities related to change and outreach are not, of course, unique to their church!

Cándido o el optimismo

Cándido, o el optimismo es un cuento filosófico publicado por el filósofo ilustrado Voltaire en 1759. Voltaire nunca admitió abiertamente ser el autor de la controvertida novela, la cual está firmada con el seudónimo «Monsieur le docteur Ralph».

Maybe you know Miss Prickly-Cat who pointedly sits in the same pew occupied by generations of her forebears, and perhaps know many of the characters in this look at church life today. A wordy Archdeacon comes on the scene, and Roddy is taken aback by the events following his first visit to church. Roddy's best friend Bushy-Beard says wise things, and he hears an enlightened Bishop ...

Derek Osborne is a retired Church of England minister and an Honorary Canon of Norwich Cathedral in the east of England. He has worked in a variety of parishes.

Canon Osborne is widely known and loved for his lifelong, faithful and effective ministry. His latest work is a unique spoof on church life. Will you recognise yourself and your church here? Your Vicar will love this. It should be compulsory reading for all aspiring clergy. Derek Osborne's mind here is insightful, his characters graphic and typical and the style acutely comical, but there is a serious message in his madness. Download this and enjoy!”
Bishop David Pytches, Chorleywood
