Frank Topping’s post-bag suggests that he knows more than most what people feel and how they respond, and he has a gift for putting it into words. Often he helps us to an awareness of God we didn’t even know we had.
“It seemed as if this had been written specially for me”: That was the most frequently repeated phrase when listeners to Radio 2 wrote to the BBC asking for a copy of the script of Frank Topping’s morning meditations on Pause for Thought. “What made me decide to broadcast them regularly,” says Frank, “was the huge response from listeners – literally thousands.”
In the Frank Topping series, the Lutterworth Press has published many of his most popular radio meditations. These collections of thoughts and prayers remain a pleasure to use and also a handy reference for those who want to find their favourite meditation.
