One 2 Three Friday 21.1.21 with author Ivor Moody.

with author Ivor Moody.
One 2 Three
Patrick Sherring

Ivor Moody joined me to talk about his book Songs for the Soul. Ivor takes six famous trans-generational secular songs, and sees how we might use them to throw new  light on scriptures, faith and the church. It also reflects his own journey of faith, as each song has been important in his own life. We heard three of the six in the book. Ivor is Vice Dean and Canon Pastor of Chelmsford Cathedral . Before that post he was Chaplain at Essex University. He said the experience of being in a totally secular environment with no church structure required him to think about innovative ways of relating faith to popular culture. One of the outcomes of this creative thinking was this book. A second volume of reflections on six more songs will be published later in this year. The book is available on the bookstall in Chelmsford Cathedral, from the publishers www.matthewjamespublishing.com and all the usual retail outlets and websites.
