The child inside the man.

This Sunday, on BBC Songs of Praise, I sing an updated version of a song I wrote when I was 15. It was originally produced by Elton John at Abbey Road in 1977. Years later Elton gave me my songs back and ‘A Child’s Prayer’ really stood out to me. I remembered my teenage passion to ‘save the world’ and it made me think how the years have moulded and changed me, and my faith. 

The new best friend I’ve never met

It seems that as more and more of us get vaccinated against Covid 19, finally, the world will start to open up again. It’s got me thinking about my personal relationships. Having been in lockdown for a year and only seeing family in my bubble and acquaintances from a distance I’m wondering if I’ll ever go back to normal, pre pandemic, human interaction.
