Christine Ledger’s book, Who Is This Vernon Cornish?, is now available.
‘Who is this Cornish?’ So exclaimed Derek Nimmo, the British actor famous for his television parodies of English clergy. In 1976, following a speech to the press club in Perth, Australia, Nimmo had received an impromptu and hilarious vote of thanks from Vernon Cornish, dean of the Anglican cathedral, astounding Nimmo.
Vernon Cornish often asked himself the same question. Was he an actor, a musician, a journalist, a speaker, a priest? In fact, he was all of these and he became a bishop. From the 1960s to the early 1980s his ordained ministry flamed brightly. It was cut short just before he was to be installed as the Bishop of Tasmania. He was a person of faith who spread joy, knew pain and lived honestly.
