Temporary breach with the Samaritans[edit]

There was some interesting information disclosed about Varah on the Radio 4 programme "Sunday" on November 11, 2007, including how he had a temporary breach with the organisation he founded, the Samaritans; should this part of his life go here? Also, according to this programme, he had a belief in reincarnation. Perhaps these parts of his life could go there? ACEOREVIVED 19:50, 11 November 2007 (UTC) Varah's temporary breach with the Samaritans was mentioned later on on Radio Four on that same day (November 11 2007) on the programme "Last Words" (originally broadcast on Friday 9 November). The explanation given was that he was feeling that the Samaritans had become too evangelical in tone. Who else heard these programmes? ACEOREVIVED 21:56, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

"Archibishop" Hine[edit]

...is mentioned in the Guardian obituary - [1]. I think he is mostly likely to be John Edward Hine (1857-1934), Bishop of Likoma 1896-1901, Bishop of Zanzibar 1901-08, Bishop of Northern Rhodesia 1910-1914, Suffragan Bishop of Grantham 1920-1930 and then an Assistant Bishop. (I have no idea where the "arch" comes from.) Bishop Hine was present when Joanna Southcott's box of prophecies was opened in 1927. -- !! ?? 08:59, 14 November 2007 (UTC)


Clerical career[edit]

There is no mention, that he was Vicar at Eastville Church. I do not know the date, but my father (who was also the Vicar t this chruch later on) remarked that there is a plaque on the church, making note of his time there. The Church can be found at Latitude: 53° 6'48.31"N and Longitude: 0° 6'4.47"E

Is the homophony of his name with the Sanskrit numeral catvarah purely coincidental?----Clive Sweeting

Samaritans telephone number[edit]

In 1953, in London, it was difficult to obtain a telephone line. There was a considerable waiting list for new lines and numbers. St. Stephen Walbrook was (and is) adjacent to the Mansion House, and Chad Varah managed to persuade the Lord Mayor to transfer his private telephone line and number to the newly-founded Samaritans. Unfortunately, I don't remember now who told me about this, which is why I'm only posting it in the discussion page, but it was someone in a position to know.

Assessment comment[edit]

I'm not sure about the reference to Barton-upon-Humber. Certainly his father was Vicar at nearby Barrow-upon-Humber, where I have seen a memorial to him and where he is listed as a former vicar. There is also archeology connected with an Anglo-Saxon monastery, associated with St Chad at Barrow, and I guess the vicar named his son after the saint.(Stephen Wells) I'm not sure of the meaning of the paragraph that begins (on 8/9/2010) "He was a professor...". Who was a professor? Presumably not Chad if he graduated with a third. Could it be clearer, please? Thank you. Jones1901 (talk) 07:49, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
