Dave Clemo writes about his spiritual journey in latest book

Jesus Yes, Church No

KETTERING'S veteran singer, songwriter and author Dave Clemo, who will be making possibly his last live performance at the Whitby Gospel Music Convention, has his latest book, Called Out: The Story Of A Backslidden Christian, published this month. Said Clemo, "The book begins in 1950s Cornwall. I was sent to Sunday School every week and loved it. I stopped going after we moved to London in 1962. Apart from the time that an evangelist told me about Jesus and I prayed the prayer, I spent most of my adult life swearing to god that I was an atheist. I became a Christian in 1990 and for the next 15 years or so used my God-given musical talent to sing my songs, preach and lead worship. By 2005 I was burnt out and damaged by my experiences and no longer went to church. In recent years, my faith has returned but not my desire to return to 'the fold'. My book explores the issues." CR
