Kindle the gift of God

author of text
2 Timothy 1: 6-7

Kindle the gift of God is a Saint Thomas piece, dedicated to Rev Frederick Morris in 1974, with its text taken from 2 Timothy Chapter 1. Morris was the 10th Rector of Saint Thomas, whose tenure stretched 18 years (until his retirement in 1972). He was widely credited with having brought new life to the parish by attracting young people, strengthening elements of the church community, and initiating restoration of the Skinner organ. Interestingly, his ministry also ended the pew rents which had existed since the parish was founded in 1823.
