  1. Paul Smith (Paulinus)

    100% top marks to Rachel Costa for her contribution in Church Times newspaper (14/3/2014).
    I would like to offer my help to your praiseworthy project ‘Think Twice’. Short CV (ish) ’twas born in 1956 and have lived with Mental Health since the age of eleven and yet I’ve served the church since 1964 and am just getting over rejection from the same since 2011. I’ve exchanged the word Depression for Nothingness and through writing, composition and improvisation seem to keep lights on green and wheels rolling. Most cordially, Paul. NB I’ve only just found out (23/7/1997) that I was given up for adoption at three weeks old, hence TRI-POLAR.
