Retrieving Tradition


Well it took me three hours of trekking in the heat and humidity on the trains across london, but I made it to Christ Church, Oxford.

I lived in Oxford in 1992-93, and never visited any of the Colleges, and never had any interest in the history of the place. Looking back, I think my low church background, and my upbringing on a council estate/public housing, made me suspcious of the city.

After several years of retrieving tradtions in my church experience and ecclessiology, being a older and less prejudiced, Oxford seems intriguing. I hope the history and traditions here stimulate my understanding and research.
