David Keighley is a retired Anglican priest of forty years, and a teacher, psychologist, and poet. He has maintained his professional and lifelong interest in the relationship between psychology and spirituality, and currently works as a psychotherapist.
"The Church has been unable to absorb the teaching of Biblical criticism, the reality of evolution, the false idea of a God ‘up there’ and accept that Christianity must be adapted to incorporate these, something any scientifically educated twelve year old does.
There is in my poems an emphasis on the teaching of the historical Jesus while rejecting nature miracles, the virgin birth or his bodily resurrection. Jesus was divine in the sense that we see God in him in the same way, though to a greater degree, we see God in the lives of all holy men and women, and each other if we look closely enough."
