The Revd Canon Dr Jim McPherson has served as an Anglican priest since 1978 and retired in 2014 to the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. He was a Distinguished Academic Visitor at Vaughan Park in 2008 when he resumed poetry writing after a gap of many years.
His poetry mostly explores the spiritual and theological themes arising from his personal and parish ministry experiences and celebrates the natural, particularly in his poems about birds.
He has recently published one collection of poetry, entitled To Tease Our Knowing. A wry look at awry which contains a number of poems already published here.
