Obituary for John Wraw from Bishop Stephen
The Rt Revd John Wraw, Bishop of Bradwell in the Diocese of Chelmsford since 2012, has died. He was 58. He lived with cancer for the last three years of his life. In his online tribute, the Bishop of Chelmsford said that other people with Johns diagnosis would have retired; but John continued to minister until the last few weeks of his life, a vivid example of a life and vocation lived to the full. Johns abundant faith and trust in Christ meant that he never contemplated being defined by waiting to die: as always, he sought to be defined by the life of Christ, crucified and risen.
