The witness of the past

Posted on 08 June 2006
Last year, Stephen was asked to gather some material for research on St. Mildred of Thanet by a friend in France. When assempled, the friend suggested that he should now give a lecture on the subject!

Thus, Stephen agreed to speak at the Colloque 2006 of the Eglise Celtique Apostolique near St Nazare on August the 14th! He comments, ‘Mildred was one of the earliest converts to Christianity among the Anglo-Saxons. Her holy life had a powerful impact upon the evangelisation of England after the collapse of Roman authority in Britain and the invasion by pagans from northern Europe. There are lessons form her life that are abidinlgy relevant and I hope that this paper will encourage others to pursue evangelical holiness.’
