Ask Derek!

Dear Friends

The life of a clergyman is such that on almost a daily basis I am required to proffer my accumulated clerical wisdom (such that it is) on all manner of situations and conundrums be it attempting to answer how the prophet Jonah managed to survive three days inside the belly of a fish without being digested to seeking a resolve to more mundane domestic ecclesiastical dilemmas such as what is the prescribed biscuit allowance (per person) for the post-service teas and coffees.

Whilst I may never be called upon to arbitrate on the weightier matter of the ownership of a child as did Solomon I feel duty bound to throw wide the doors and make my wisdom and counsel available beyond the confines of St Cliff’s.

To that end, if you have a thorny biblical question for which you presently have no answer or perhaps there is a more general question on matters pertaining to life, the universe and everything, then help is at hand.

Simply drop me a line with the question which is causing you consternation and I will select those which I consider will be of the greatest interest to my ‘online congregation’ to answer.

You may contact me at:

I look forward with eager anticipation to your ‘posers’.

Onward and upward

    Hi Derek, My name is also Derek (William, Derek, to give me my proper title) and I too am a Cleric, within the Salvation Army.

    Hi Derek
    I’m a Baptist minister and have a question for you: Will there be animals in heaven? I think so…
    Thanks for the humour – an essential prerequisite for ministry

    Heather. 🙂

      Perhaps I will answer that ‘poser’ on another occasion but for now, your kind comments appreciated.
