Father Roddy Johnston

In this positive, inspiring and envy making Conversation series Clare English speaks to 5 people who have been brave enough to bin the day job in favour of doing something they really, really want to do with their lives. But how easy is it, does it always mean a financial compromise and downsizing of their lives, how does it impact on the people around them and is it just a selfish, self-centred option usually born of a midlife crisis which most of us can't seriously consider because we have more sense of responsibility to those we love? We'll also determine just what the difference is between a career and a vocation and question whether it just slips back into a job once you've been doing it for a while? This week, Clare speaks to Father Roddy Johnston and finds out why he went from forestry to faith and how he's adjusted to the restrictions on his life as a priest.
