‘Christianity is about relationship, hope…Rev Bruce Keeble’

As part of documentary films production, this documentary was made to record Rev Bruce Keeble’s views on Christianity. He was the Minister of Hillhead Baptist Church, Glasgow, Scotland, from 1991 till 1998, where two of us attended regularly together with other Japanese people.  When he saw us for the first time among the congregation, he was taken aback, as he had been interned in China by the Japanese army during WWII. Gradually, however, friendship emerged.  In April 2015 we went to see him to hear his views on these experiences.
