I stand in awe at the writer and all those involved in producing the final episode in the series of Rev. I know how Adam felt. Faith is not something that sits there as a fixture; it does desert you; it is allusive. The heart of the calling is perhaps to be there for those in need, and rightly so. My question is whether in twenty year's time the old lady dying will ask for the last rites, as she did with such moving effect in tonight's programme. It gave comfort; it was at the heart of the calling, but if the story of Jesus is known less and less, from where will comfort come?
The programme, seen by many, perhaps has the potential to help. At the very least it portrays the church as it is, warts and all.
