This chapter examines the retirement of Hensley Henson as Bishop of Durham. It explains that Henson gave away most of his prized possessions when he left Durham. It discusses Prime Minister Winston Churchill's nomination of Henson to become canon of Westminster Abbey and to do a piece of war work, knowing the bishop's negative opinion of Nazi Germany's anti-Semitic policies. Henson served for the second time as canon of Westminster from September 1940 to April 1941.
