Papa don't...

Former BBC Deputy DG and Gold Commander Mark Byford has given his first sermon, from the pulpit of St Paul's, Winchester. It has a capacity of 250, but we have no word on how many were present.

"I’m not here to preach today. I don’t feel I have the authority or the training to do so. But what I am happy to offer is my thoughts on today’s readings and the Ascension. Take them for what they are. My own thoughts and insights, rooted in due humility. I hope they are interesting and coherent but I apologise now if they are neither."

Click for the full 2270 words - at three words per second, it would have detained the congregation for a modest 12 minutes.
