Nostalgia was once a medical condition to be treated with leeches; now we treat the nostalgic to a magazine series that throws in a free binder. Andrew Rumsey asks why the “longing for home” has become a therapy rather than a symptom and wonders whether Christian belief offers a cure.
Andrew Rumsey is a vicar in south London. Described by Ian Hislop as “witty, erudite, eloquent and thoughtful” his latest book, Strangely Warmed, is a satirical salvo at the church he loves. Andrew’s writing regularly appears in Third Way magazine and at ship-of-fools.com.
