Last Wednesday I paid my first ever visit to Spurgeon’s Baptist College in London (I went to Bristol #happydays). It was a secret that many fellow minister’s and tutors held as we sprung a surprise on Rev. Dr. John Colwell, for his lifetime of service to the Church and University, although he confessed to increasing suspicion as the minutes rolled by. John is a wonderful man, and it was a real treat for me to get to know him as my mentor when I moved to South Devon and first met him. He has preached several times at my church, and is a most excellent preacher at that! I interviewed him a few years ago which received more hits in the first month than any other blog post I wrote (he doesn’t know that)! What follows below is the account of that day from the Baptist Times online paper here.
