I was born in the Orkney Islands in Scotland in 1955. My mothers maiden name was Eunson, indicating some Norwegian / Scandinavian background. I was the sixth child of eight. At age 18 I left to study theology at London Bible College (now London school of Theology). I graduated in 1976 with an honours degree in theology, and also left engaged to Sue Middlemiss with whom I had 27 years of marriage. We moved to Cobham, Surrey to participate in a reasonably new expression of church there. Ben and Judith were born in 1981 and 1984 respectively. In Feb, 2005, Sue passed away, and I continued to live in that area in Leatherhead, until the end of 2008. I still journey with many of those same believers, and have friends in many places in the world. In August 2008 I proposed to Gayle (Crawford), and we were married at the end of November 2008. I had known Gayle for some 10 years, but for the previous 4 years she had been living in Inverness. We found our paths converging and a wonderful relationship has developed. By the time you read this we will have been relocated into Palma de Mallorca.
