I enjoy watching the Colin and Justin team and their programme on BBC2 – The million pound property experiment. In fact, DIY and garden surprises make great entertainment. It set me thinking about clergy houses and how many of my colleagues end up living in dull, dismal or frankly make-do houses. Often it is because congregations just don't have the money and the poor old minister or priest feels unable to do much about it because after all they follow the baby born in a stable. Many houses are dark, damp, depressing and downright unsuitable. Living in a tied house is never easy, and the job of ministry is all-consuming. The least we can do is to make things more comfortable. So I have written to Colin and Justin. Who knows, maybe a makeover is coming to you.
