Staggeringly Revd Nicholas Baines, Bishop of Leeds, West Yorkshire, the Dales and any other bits that can’t afford their own bishop any more

And in the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, my tree, and knighted, famous neighbours. I will now recite some poetry. A tree had to die to become the cross. Isn’t Jesus just fantastic.
