Thinking Anglicans

opinions after General Synod

Terry Philpot writes about Catholic care homes in the Guardian’s Face to Faith column.

Usama Hasan writes in The Times about What is Sharia?

Giles Fraser writes in the Church Times that the Democrats now do God.

Christopher Howse following the archbishop’s lead tells more Ronald Knox jokes in When Islam and the C of E unite.

Craig Brown tries to be amusing in Dr Rowan Williams’ ‘Cat Sat On The Mat’.

And for a real contrast to that, try the sermon given by Rowan Williams at the memorial service for Charlie Moule last weekend.
