A BEAUTIFUL REVIEW, A FAMILY, SO KINDLY, HAVE WRITTEN ABOUT ME ON LINKEDIN

"I write this review to show my absolute respect to Jonathan in the way he delivered my mother-laws funeral service. Once meeting Jonathan at my home to draft the life and time script, I knew my family and friends were going to be in for a great service. Meeting Jonathan at the chapel on the funeral morning, I must say that his professionalism was second to none During the service, looking around my seated guests, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house, only to say, “tears of Joy”. Once the chapel service was complete, we headed over for the burial, and again Jonathan blew my guests away with his kind and heart-warming readings, along with a reading from one of my daughters’ hand written verses, and the final delivery of a beautiful song “Somewhere over the Rainbow “.Jonathan sang this song tremendously. The pink petals he passed down to the coffin were an amazing beautiful farewell. This was a heartfelt end to our beautiful tired lady. God bless.

In my opinion Jonathan is the man that would turn any wedding, funeral or and family gathering into an angel memory that would never be forgotten, God Bless Jonathan, our superstar."






I AM PROUD OF MY WRITING, FOR JESUS’S SAKE, THAT HAS HAD ME FOUND INNOCENT IN HEAVEN, BUT TWICE A CRIMINAL ON THE EARTH. THE FIRST IN 1990 WHEN I WROTE A BIBLICAL TEXT ON THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT IN PEACEFUL PROTEST ABOUT THE BOMBING OF YOUNG IRAQI RECRUITS DURING THE FIRST GULF WAR. THE SECOND, IN 2016 WHEN I WROTE ON MY BLOG, TO ALERT THE PUBLIC ABOUT A PAEDOPHILE, AND WAS SUCCESSFUL IN FORCING THE AUTHORITIES TO STOP HIM HAVING ACCESS TO CHILDREN. THERE WAS ALMOST A THIRD! IN 1997, WHEN I WAS ARRESTED FOR NAILING MY PROPOSALS FOR REFORM OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND ON THE DOOR OF CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL. WORDS ARE POWERFUL MESSAGES THAT CHALLENGE  CORRUPTION, CONFRONT THE WICKED AND CREATE A BETTER WORLD. JESUS IS THE WORD OF GOD AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE CALLED  TO COMMUNICATE HIS WORDS,  IRRESPECTIVE OF THE COST.

"You brave, courageous and wonderful man. To stand up for the truth in the face of suppression and oppression is truly an act of a pure heart."
