Our Michael Green by Michael Lloyd, Principal, Wycliffe Hall

  • Michael was a superb evangelist, as exemplified by the way he cleared the table over his hospital bed of its water jug, glasses, grapes and Get Well cards – and replacing them with copies of his books, and a sign that read, ‘If I’m not conscious, please take one!’
  • He was a serious scholar, always preaching from the Greek New Testament, and offering some of our students extra study of the Greek text, to their huge enrichment.
  • He was a supreme encourager. Someone once defined leadership as ‘finding someone who is doing something well and telling them’. No wonder Michael was such a good leader – he was always finding something or someone to praise.
  • He modelled to staff and students at Wycliffe that integration of passionate heart, rigorous mind, disciplined life and kind engagement to which we aspire.

 

We shall miss him deeply and will be praying for Rosemary and the family.
