Gifted Priest

The Rev Dr David Lord, reluctantly at the centre of a controversy within the worldwide Anglican communion, is a remarkable and personable example of how medicine and faith can be brought together in a healthy unity.

David is a gifted and gracious Anglican priest and a specialist medical doctor. Seldom have I seen the ministry to body and soul come together in such harmony.

As hospital chaplain I have seen how David respects with professional skill the boundaries between his work as doctor and priest within the hospital and community. I admire his courage to express his Christian faith in both professions, and in his personal life.
