From  John Bodycomb

Rev Dr John Bodycomb is a Melbourne-based minister of the Uniting Church in Australia.   He retired in 1996 after forty years as parish minister, Christian educator, University Ecumenical Chaplain and former head of the Uniting Church’s Theological Hall in Melbourne.   

John was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia for his promotion of religious freedom and to fostering ecumenism.  

"Excited to Speak, Exciting to Hear" on the art of preaching, is one of a number of books written by John Bodycomb (available from our Church Library).

This Kenyan Prayer which can be found near the front of the book, has much wisdom within it:

'From the cowardice that dare not face new truths, From the laziness that is contented with half truth, From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth, Good Lord, deliver me.'
